Rigsby has released three solo albums. His first, “A Vision,” won the Association of Independent Music’s “gospel album of the year” award and was nominated for an IBMA award. He received the 1999 Bluegrass Now Magazine Fan’s Choice Award for vocal tenor of the year and the 2001 Governor’s Kentucky Star Award. “Empty Old Mailbox,” the title track from his third album, won the 2001 Song of the Year award from SPGBMA.
In 2001, Don Rigsby became the first full-time director of Morehead State University’s Kentucky Center for Traditional Music, an innovative program designed to preserve and promote traditional music in all forms, including programs for schools and a minor in Traditional Music at MSU. He was instrumental in the founding of “Bluegrass ‘n More: A Celebration of Appalachian Heritage,” an annual early June festival in Morehead that features Bluegrass, gospel, and other forms of mountain music as well as folk art, fine art, writing workshops, lectures, and exhibitions of Appalachian cultural innovations. Don teaches vocal harmony classes for the traditional music minor, and coordinates classes, workshops, concerts, and school tours by new and old stars of traditional music.
