2. Gyth’s started playing music because of his dear old dad.
American Quarter Horse trainer Paul Rigdon is the reason we have been #BLESSED with Gyth’s voice. In the same way that Gyth loves music, so does his father Paul. Paul inspired Gyth to pick up a guitar and sing his heart out. Gyth gushes on his website, “My dad has been there since day one. I’m proud to say that he has supported me every step of the way. He has never doubted me and always pushed me to work harder. My dad is my hero.”
3. The Voice ain’t his first rodeo!
