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.”
Sam signed his publishing deal with Major Bob in February of 2019. He is managed by Triple 8 Management and is currently selling out dates across the country on the “Love & Panic” tour.
