But the excitement doesn’t stop there. Not only did Levi perform for WE Fest, he also has opened for major acts, some of which include The Band Perry, Easton Corbin, Colt Ford, Justin Moore and Brett Eldredge.
One event in particular that Levi is very proud of was being invited to play for Manuel at the famous Nashville country music clothing designer’s 79th birthday party!
Best friend to Johnny Cash (one of Levi’s biggest music influences, along with Elvis Presley and Harry Chapin), Levi was floored with the response Manuel gave when asked what kind of look he thought Levi should have on stage. His answer, “I see you wearing black like the young Johnny Cash....no black coats, though...and be humble about it.”
Like Johnny, Levi sings and writes about what’s true to him, even if it means having to sing on the heavier side of subjects. “I don’t write songs just to write. I write about what I have passion for, what I’m growing through, and what’s real to me....and if I don’t write it, I pick songs that sound like I did.”
Riggs wants songs his fans can sing along to and go home with a piece of him and what he has experienced in life. His passion for his music and his fans shines through when he stands and signs autographs and takes pictures after his concerts at his “meet and greet,” visiting until the last fan leaves.
2012 marked a turning point in Riggs’ career with the single on the charts “There’s Still A Place For That,” along with a music video taken in Levi’s hometown of Danville. The video expresses the values of the young country singer and his views of family, faith, and patriotism. Armed with a new single, unrelenting drive and work ethic, and a team of some of the best professionals in the industry, there is little room to doubt that Levi Riggs will become a country music superstar.
