Growing up in Tullahoma, Tennessee, Dustin Lynch lived the kind of rural life celebrated by country music, and his albums reflect those roots. His self-titled debut album was released in 2012 on Broken Bow Records and hit No. 1 on Billboard’sTop Country Albums chart. Additionally, the lead single “Cowboys and Angels” exceeded Platinum-sales status while earning Lynch widespread fans and critical acclaim.
Since then, Lynch has racked up three consecutive Gold- or Platinum-certified #1 singles – “Where It’s At (Yep, Yep),” “Hell of a Night,” and “Seein’ Red” – while his current release, the romantically-charged, hit-single “Small Town Boy” has become the fastest-rising single of his career, recently hitting No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.
Lynch has toured with artists including Luke Bryan, Keith Urban, Florida Georgia Line, and Chris Young, amongst others, and this past summer he was on the road with Brad Paisley, as part of Paisley’s Weekend Warrior Tour. He’ll be releasinghis highly-anticipated fourth album, Current Mood, this September.
Special Guest Jackie Lee
Following the heartbreaking death of his mother in June 2016, the 25-year-old vocal powerhouse has undergone a complete transformation – personally and musically – rededicating himself to a whole new attitude and poised for a breakthrough with the romantically-charged single, “Getting Over You.”
Featuring an ultra-modern, electronic sound with propulsive drums and wounded vocals so hot they might spontaneously combust, Lee was determined to leave his fingerprints all over the new track, even if that meant breaking way from his earlier sound.
With a renewed sense of purpose, “Getting Over You” is a high-definition look at who Lee really is, lyrically and sonically. Co-written with hit makers Brent Anderson and Paul DiGiovanni, it shows Lee’s hard-wired connection to matters of the heart – and also reveals the genesis of his ambitious new sound.
