We are growing corn this year for the first time. The outside of the corn is turning red, is this normal or is it dying?

It should not be turning red. It sounds like it may have a phosphorous deficiency. This can be caused by a lack of phosphorous in the soil or a lack of water so the plant is unable to take phosphorous up from the soil. Give the plant some bone meal or other phosphorous heavy fertilizer and try increasing water to the corn.
