Sam Riggs

Given the choice, Sam Riggs would take skydiving over watching movies on any given Sunday. That sense of daring is a key element in his brand of country, a rock-infused sound with a chip on its sonic shoulder from a guy who counts Garth Brooks, Foo Fighters, Eric Church, and A Day To Remember among his influences.

A St. Cloud, Florida, native, Riggs’ career took off after he set welding aside and quit college in a series of events he calls “the ultimate gamble.” His risky nature and rebel spirit show through in the music, and that no-fear approach to life is quickly setting him apart. “I need to push it to the edge,” he says. “I don’t know how to be any other way.” A growing audience has found him. To date, Riggs has racked up nearly 30 million streams on Spotify, 7.82 million views on YouTube, and 30 thousand subscribers. A number of his singles hit the upper levels of the Texas charts, including the showstopper “Hold On And Let Go,” the thumping concert re-creation “High On A Country Song” and his vulnerable “Second Hand Smoke.” After signing a publishing deal with Major Bob Music in February 2019 and releasing the next evolution of his sound entitled, “Love & Panic” in June, Riggs and his team are cutting new music and focusing on securing a major label record deal in Nashville while he continues to tour the country.
