Gyth Rigdon is no ordinary Louisiana country boy. Born on February 2, 1994, his upbringing included working from sun up to sun down on a southern Louisiana race horse farm in a small town called Singer. When his day’s work was done, he turned to his guitar, strumming the tunes that had been playing over and over in his head all day long. Although he was often dead tired at the end of a hard day of work, he never seemed to lack energy for his first love – music.
Gyth started singing and playing music at a very early age. By the time he was eight, he was already singing in church, private parties, and talent shows. He also enjoyed sports, playing basketball, baseball, and running track. But music always came first. His passion for music was first and foremost, driving him to work at his craft relentlessly. So, it came as no surprise that shortly after graduating from high school, Gyth took a huge step in his music career. In November of 2012, Gyth left his family and his beloved small Louisiana hometown and headed to Nashville. A young man right out of high school with just his guitar and a dream to make it in the country music business, he wasted no time jumping into the music scene. He began playing shows throughout Tennessee, writing songs with hit writers, and performing as the opening act for country music stars, such as Jake Owen, Gary Allan, Andy Griggs, Jamie O’ Neal, Chris Cagle, Neal McCoy, and Wayne Toups. Gyth has also seen his music featured in a movie, as his song “Where do we go from here” was in the 2013 movie “How To Love A Geek.” Gyth released his debut record titled “Where I Began” in August of 2016, with the title track “Body Language” having over 350,000 downloads/spins, Gyth also released a music video featuring his single “Body Language.”
“When strings and dreams are aligned, magic happens”
Gyth continues to press forward in making his music dreams come true. He’s a humble young man, intent on sharing his musical talent with the world. And he’s confident that “when strings and dreams are aligned, magic happens.”
