John Riggins grew up competitive in his hometown of Westfield Indiana. From sports and volunteering his time to those in need to performing the traditional Outlaw Country Music he loves, John has always been one to excel at everything he does. He started out just him and his guitar, picking for tips at any venue that would have him in Indianapolis and surrounding counties. From there he formed a band and competed against over 30 bands at Indy’s biggest country music venue, the 8-Second Saloon which led to opening for national acts such as Daryl Worley, Jason Michael Carroll, and Mark Wills. So looking for a new challenge, in 2013, John decided to take on Music City!

He began performing regularly on the World Famous Broadway in Nashville, which led to a recording contract with Canadian label, Red Boot Entertainment which led to a new CD, which led to a merger with Red Boot Canada and Bell Records Nashville and a new single “90 Proof Prison” which is being released in the US and Canada on January 1, 2016. Keeping with tradition, John is now taking his show to venues in other states! In a short time John has also become a prolific songwriter having penned over half of his CD “Outlaw Rising” he is co-writing with songwriters Gary Gentry; “The Ride” (David Allen Coe, Tim McGraw), “We Didn’t See A Thing” (Ray Charles & George Jones), “1959,” (John Anderson), “Who Cares” (Ray Charles & Janie Frickie), “The Very Best Of Me” and “The One I Loved Back Then (The Corvette Song)” (George Jones) and SESAC Award Winner, Shawn Byrnes and others.

John Riggins isn’t settling for the things he’s accomplished, he’s looking for more to do. And besides growing his Outlaw Country Music bigger, writing and singing a number one hit and performing to thousands of traditional country music fans; he’s thinking.
