Broken Bow Records artist Dustin Lynch occupies a unique place in today’s country music. Thanks to his classic sensibilities, he’s been heralded as the heir to George Strait’s throne. Yet with one listen to his newest hit, “Where It’s At,” it’s obvious the young Tennessee native knows how to combine his traditional influences with an edgy intensity that places him at the vanguard of today’s contemporary country scene.
It’s that ability to fuse his country roots with a progressive musical vision that makes Lynch one of today’s most successful young artists. His self-titled debut hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart – making him the only new male artist to achieve such a feat that year. The album’s lead single, “Cowboys and Angels,” exceeded platinum sales status while earning Lynch a legion of devoted fans. “Cowboys and Angels” became a modern day country classic, ending the year as one Billboard’s Top 5 Country Songs of 2012.
Lynch further cemented his next-big-thing status with the sexy, up-tempo barnstormer “She Cranks My Tractor” which reached #1 on GAC’s Top 20 Country Countdown. The accolades continued to pour in, among them Rolling Stone heralding Lynch as “The New Hat in Town” in the magazine’s 2013 “Best of Rock” issue. Lynch’s career momentum continued as he opened for Keith Urban on his recent Light the Fuse Tour and earned critical praise from American Songwriter, Billboard, Country Weekly, Elle, The Los Angeles Times, People, The Washington Post and USA Today, to name a few.
Lynch’s Facebook fan page has grown by nearly ONE MILLION in the last year and his Twitter by 184%. He’s soared to #1 on the MTV Music Meter, earned a #1 ringtone on CMT, a Top 5 on the Billboard Heatseekers Songs Chart, two American Country Award and one CMT Music Award nomination. Lynch has appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, CBS This Morning, FOX & Friend’s All American Summer Concert Series, MTV’s Best of 2012 Concert; presented alongside Carmen Electra at the 2012 American Country Awards and performed at the 2013 CMT Music Awards.
This Fall, Lynch returns with his highly anticipated sophomore album, WHERE IT’S AT, produced by Brett Beavers (Dierks Bentley), Luke Wooten (Brad Paisley) and Mickey Jack Cones (Jason Aldean), flag-shipped by the up-tempo title track, which has quickly become a summertime anthem and been named an iTunes Top 5 Hot Country Song.
