Biography

MCR recording artist Riggin Reins, one of country music’s most promising artists, was born in Lebanon, Indiana. It was in this small rural town that Riggin discovered and developed his passion for country music.

Riggin began his career playing any event and venue he could. It wasn’t until one honoring event that Riggin received the affirmation and opportunity he desired. John Mellencamp, a fellow Hoosier, approached Riggin asking to use his bus for an event at the Indianapolis 500. It was in this bus that Riggin and Mellencamp struck up a conversation about music and the industry.

Upon listening to Riggin’s songs, Mellencamp was overwhelmed by a myriad of ideas and Riggin’s talent. Riggin accepted Mellencamp’s invitation to record his new album, “Just Getting Bye,” at Echo Park Studio in Bloomington Indiana. The title track for this album, which was written by Brad Paisley, will be the first single released for radio. Paisley, who, in addition to the title track contributed 3 additional songs, is joined by Darryl Worley and Riggin himself, as the main contributing songwriters for the album.

Following the direction and with the support of giants like Mellencamp, Paisley, and Worley, Riggin’s career has skyrocketed leading to performances in front of sell-out crowds with some of country music’s most popular stars. Playing alongside artists like Brad Paisley, Darryl Worley, Confederate Railroad and the legendary Ronnie McDowell, Riggin is set to take country music by storm.

2008 promises to be an exciting year for Riggin as he gets ready to set out for another tour. With a new band full of extremely talented and energetic musicians, Riggin is poised to revolutionize country music while promising an action-packed, unforgettable good time for all those who come out to see him.
