According to his bio on NBC, Rigdon, 25, first discovered his passion for music when he was 15 at the “family campfire jam session.” His parents and his wife were unquestionably supportive of his dream.

"I was playing a bar one night when I met this lady and we started talking about how she loved me and my music."

Rigdon is a real country boy. He grew up helping at his dad’s racehorse farm. After waking up in the morning to tend their farm’s horses, he found music to be relaxing.

In an interview, Rigdon revealed that he has a wide variety of influences, including Chris Stapleton, Clay Walker, Travis Tritt, Darius Rucker, Otis Redding, 3 Doors Down, James Otto, and Conway Twitty.

Rigdon, who described himself as driven, passionate, and determined, said that over that past eight years, he had taken different styles from some of his favorite musicians to create what he thinks is his unique sound.

When asked about the first concert he attended, he said, "I was 16 when I went to my first concert. I had actually gotten a call to open for Johnny Lee. The experience to open for a legend was amazing. I was even able to go hang out on his bus after the show and play some songs with him."

During the interview, Rigdon also shared his unexpected fan encounter. He said, "I was playing a bar one night when I met this lady and we started talking about how she loved me and my music. She said she was going to get my logo tattooed on her."

He added, "I laughed it off and didn’t think twice about it until a week later when I got a message with a picture of her with my logo tattooed on her shoulder. It was actually pretty cool."

Rigdon first tried out for "The Voice" in 2014, but he was rejected. Recently, he caused quite the controversy with his "God Bless the USA" performance during the Top 8 performance episode of the hit singing competition.

Both John Legend and Kelly Clarkson admitted that this hadn't been his best performance so far, and a lot of viewers weren't happy with their critiques. Luckily, his team leader, Blake Shelton, only had supportive words.
