I just bartered an old tv stand and got a RIGID twin stack compressor. I want to use it for my air brush besides everything else. Do I need to put an air dryer?

Any other advice would be appreciated.

You need a pressure regulator (if it doesn't have one) and a moisture trap. Plus the hose adapters to fit everything together. You can get all of that at Home Depot or Lowes in the air tools dept. Use some PTFE (aka Teflon) plumber's tape on the threads.
