Dustin Lynch Kicks Off a Good Summer with “Good Girl”

Dustin Lynch News

Surprise Debut Performance During 2018 iHeartCountry Festival Named One Of The Event’s “Best Moments”, Up For First Billboard Music Award May 20 Broken Bow Records star DUSTIN LYNCH is getting his summer off to a “good” start, unveiling brand new music and the groove-country vibes of his new single “Good Girl.” After performing the song live for the first time at the iHeartCountry Festival by AT&T in Austin, TX, on Saturday (5/5), “Good Girl” made its world premiere across iHeartCountry radio yesterday (5/6). The track just felt too perfect for the moment to hold back any longer. “We came across something that I just fell in love with immediately, and we just said, ‘Well, why not just go and record the song?’ And once we did that, I got to thinking, ‘Man, I can’t live with this song not being heard this summer,’” Lynch said in a video message to fans. “So, I called my record label, they were cool with going ahead and letting me record it, and then I asked, ‘Man, what if we went ahead and put this out for summer ’18. Like, I can’t wait all year long to put this out next year, or something.’ And they were like, ‘Well, hell yeah!’” Listen to “Good Girl” here. Written by Lynch with Justin Ebach and Andy Albert, and produced by Zach Crowell, “Good Girl” taps back into the classic-meets-contemporary sound of Lynch’s biggest country hits. Doused in sunshine and overflowing with effortless romance, the lucky-to-be-me anthem is all about living the good life – one where the right partner makes even the best of times better. It follows closely after a remarkable streak of five straight GOLD or PLATINUM-certified #1 singles – two of which stemmed from the Tullahoma, TN native’s 2017 Top 5 album, CURRENT MOOD (“Seein’ Red” and “Small Town Boy”). Lynch’s performance ranked as one of the night’s “best moments” (iHeartRadio) when he surprised the crowd with the “new summer jam” (Whiskey Riff) at the 2018 iHeartCountry Festival Saturday (5/5), taking place at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, TX. The boundary pushing singer-songwriter is also on the bill for this year’s all-genre iHeartRadio Music Festival, which takes place September 21–22 in Las Vegas. Meanwhile, Lynch is up for his first-ever Billboard Music Award on May 20, nominated in the coveted Top Country Song category for his PLATINUM-certified, multi-week #1, “Small Town Boy.” The star-studded ceremony will air live on NBC at 8 p.m. ET from Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena. Having just wrapped his run as the featured supporting artist on Brad Paisley’s WEEKEND WARRIOR WORLD TOUR, Lynch is slated to perform at North American fairs and festivals through September.

DUSTIN LYNCH WINS BIG ON SPIKE TV’S LIP SYNC BATTLE

Dustin Lynch on Country Music News Blog

Took on Cassadee Pope in Last Night’s Hilarious Holiday Episode New Single “Seein’ Red” Enters Country Radio’s Top 10 Broken Bow Records artist DUSTIN LYNCH proved unbeatable in last night’s (12/21) laugh-out-loud episode of Spike TV’s LIP SYNC BATTLE, taking on fellow country star Cassadee Pope. Hosted by LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen, LIP SYNC BATTLE pits celebrities in a head-to-head fight to see who can deliver the most outrageous and entertaining lip-synched performance, and Lynch wowed the crowd with Ludacris’ lusty rap hit “What’s Your Fantasy” and Lou Bega’s dancehall smash “Mambo No. 5,” earning himself the LSB championship belt. Trading in his cowboy hat for a flat-brimmed cap, Lynch turned on the goofy sex appeal for “What’s Your Fantasy,” a hip-thrusting good time that ended with a whipped cream finish and had Pope doubled over in laughter. “Mambo No. 5,” on the other hand, was full of zoot-suited, Latin-flavored fun … with “a little bit” of fake mustache thrown in for good measure.

Dustin Lynch: Live Show Review

Dustin Lynch Proves He’s The Real Deal with Live Performance at George’s Majestic Lounge In Fayetteville, AR. When I first heard Dustin Lynch‘s debut album, I knew I just had to see him live. I was primarily curious to see if he would be as good live as he is on his record. After seeing his recent performance in front of a packed crowd at George’s Majestic Lounge in Fayetteville, AR, I can honestly tell you that Lynch is even better in person! This talented young man has charisma coming out of his ears, and he really knows how to work a crowd. The audience that night came for a good time, and boy did they get it! Well-Rounded Set of Great Music! Of course it really doesn’t hurt that straight out of the gate, Dustin has an album of fourteen tracks that are sure to please a crowd. Playing upbeat tunes like his current feisty single, “She Cranks My Tractor,” and the sassy “Wild In Your Smile,” and then slowing it down with songs like the bittersweet “Hurricane” and the subtly sexy “Sittin’ Pretty,” Lynch had a song for everybody. Besides playing his own music though, he had a few covers to offer up like a great rendition Garth Brooks’ classic “Friends In Low Places.” He kept the energy in the high straight through the end, and finished things up with his hit “Cowboys and Angels” that had everyone singing along, and all the young women in the room swooning (though to be fair, they were pretty smitten during the entire concert!). Concert Had a Great Energy! Besides having a well rounded set though, Lynch didn’t hold back on interacting with audience members which added to the energy of the show. Whether he was handing out cold beer from the stage or pulling guys and gals from the audience on stage for an impromptu dance contest of sorts, Dustin made sure the whole concert felt like a party! From beginning to end, things never lagged and it was a night that fans were sure to remember. As a matter of fact, I was in line at George’s just this past weekend for another show, and folks were still talking about Lynch’s show. I’d say he left some kind of a good impression! All Signs Point to a Great Guy! Besides all that, even after the concert had finished up Dustin was still willing to give his time to his fans. Guys and girls lined up to take pictures and greet their new favorite country artist, and he took the time to meet each and everyone of them. I’m talking over an hour of taking photos and shaking hands after giving such an energetic show, and this country newbie was just as warm and friendly to the last as he was to the first. I can’t promise that fans will get similar chances after every show, but it’s clear the Lynch cares about his fans and is willing to repay Continue reading

Dustin Lynch Interview: Talks First Album, Recent Success and What’s Up Next

MissMolly Chats with Dustin Lynch About His Eventful Year, Working On His Album,  What’s In Store Next and More! Earlier this afternoon, I got the chance to chat via phone with country newbie, Dustin Lynch, and I gotta say, I was digging his sound before and now I really am a full blown fan! Lynch is down to earth, gracious, and quite honestly shows every sign of being the real deal. There’s no doubt that we’re going to keep seeing and hearing more from this talented young man in the future. So, take a couple minutes and get to know him a little better below with excerpts from our chat! Cheers! Interview with Dustin Lynch: Dustin shared a little bit about the recording process, telling me that he worked with his two producers, Brett Beavers and Luke Wooten who are also two of his buddies, for three years on his debut album. There were a lot of long days, long nights and long weeks, but ultimately they came up with an end result that they were satisfied with. “We’re super proud of the sound we got off this album. I’m not an artist that’s gonna have just a couple hits and then filler songs. Top to bottom its gonna be solid.” Creating such a great album (my words, Lynch proved to be very humble when I praised his work!) right out the gate definitely takes a lot of hard work, and Dustin shared that he approached creating songs and the album a lot of different ways. “With songwriting it really depends. A lot of my writing I try to find the melody and phrasing that works with it. We might go, hey here’s a hook, and then we’ll start banging around on what music fits that, and then it kind of falls into place. With “Cowboys and Angels” that was a lyric that came first not the whole song but some pretty decent lines. Then we sat and  thought what could make this an epic love song? And we got that guitar riff and off it went. With “She Cranks My Tractor” we tried to get something up beat, but the song is really built out of that line, “She’s ten pounds of sugar in a five pound sack.” It set the tone for that song. But it happens different ways. If we find something we think is a hit, we try to work it out.“ There are 13 tracks on the album, and I tried to get Lynch to choose a favorite. It shouldn’t be surprising that that was a tall order from the young man that wrote or co-wrote ten of the songs off the record, and clearly put so much love and sweat into it. While he couldn’t pick a favorite, he did have this to say: There are a couple I love to do live. Though, “Your Plan” is my most personal song…I was getting kicked around pretty hard in Nashville, the business can be hard. Continue reading
