Gyth Rigdon is no ordinary Louisiana country boy. Raised in Singer, Louisiana, where family is everything, Gyth grew up working on a racehorse farm. His dad inspired him to play the guitar and sing. He was only 3 years old when he picked up the guitar and started singing. By the time he was 8, he was already singing in church and private parties. Hard work, determination, and faith got him where he is today. The best way to describe his music is southern rock meets country with a lot of soul. Holly Broussard, St. Michael School Development Director, said he shared his story with the children and told them he was raised in a small town, working on a farm, just like a lot of them. He told them dreams do come true and never give up on what they want in life. Needless to say, the children were so excited!
It was a surprise! He was so kind and took the time to visit with the students and take pictures. He told the students he was from a small town like Crowley and dreams do come true.  The students were so excited! The St. Michael Saints love Gyth Rigdon!  -Holly Broussard, St. Michael School Development Director
