Dustin Lynch charged out of the gate this week when his new single, “Where It’s At,” earned airplay at a head-turning 79 first-week stations at Country Radio, making it the week’s Most-Added Song. The lead single from Lynch’s upcoming sophomore album on Broken Bow Records earned adds in key markets from coast-to-coast propelling the song to #50 on the Billboard Country Songs Chart and to #57 on the Country Aircheck/ USA Today Chart (powered by Mediabase).
The up-tempo summertime anthem celebrates the simple things in life: most importantly that “sweet little something late-night kiss” from a special someone. The song (written by Cary Barlowe, Zach Crowell and Matt Jenkins / produced by Mickey Jack Cones) goes on to proclaim that no matter how fancy or simple the surroundings, as long as you’re together then that’s “Where It’s At."
“We all can get decked out, dressed up, go out to a fancy dinner and do all the sparkly things in life but we always end up heading back to the house. That’s where the true love is and happens,” says Lynch. There’s nothing more real than just being with somebody else. Having someone else in your life that makes good days better is unmatchable. Having the love of someone to come home to at night. . .that’s really ‘Where It’s At.’”

NASHVILLE, TN – Chart-topping Broken Bow Records artist Dustin Lynch will make his late night TV debut on Monday, March 25th when he perform his current smash, the double-entendre barn burner, “She Cranks My Tractor,” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
“She Cranks My Tractor,” Lynch’s second single from his #1 debut album, is already a bonafide hit at Country radio rising to #17 and #18 this week on both Billboard and Mediabase respectively.
Lynch will also perform his debut hit, “Cowboys and Angels,” which, as one of the most played songs at Country Radio in 2012, has quickly become a modern day Country classic.
Since the release of his hit, “Cowboys and Angels,” Lynch has sold nearly ONE MILLION downloads of his debut single and has surpassed 7 million views on YouTube/ VEVO. 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, a #2 Country radio single and two American Country Award nominations. “Cowboys and Angels” ended the year as one of Billboard’s Top 5 Country Songs of 2012.
Lynch has been lauded as one of Billboard’s “Most Anticipated Debuts of 2012,” People Country’s “Fresh Faces,” Country Weekly’s “Ones to Watch in 2012,” has been profiled as a USA Today “On the Verge” artist, and was the only solo male artist on Nashville Lifestyles’ 2012 “Hot List.” People magazine recently called Lynch’s #1 self-titled album “one of the year’s best debuts.” Lynch is the only new male Country artist to earn a #1 debut album in 2012.
Lynch is currently on tour with Justin Moore’s Outlaws Like Me Tour. He joins superstars Keith Urban and Little Big Town on Urban’s 2013 North American Tour in Cincinnati on July 18.
Heavily influenced in his youth by the famed “Class of ‘89” - comprised of such stalwart country singers as Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks and Clint Black – Lynch’s brand of Country is trademarked by his distinctively deep, emotional vocals, and lyrical embodiment of growing up in and people watching in his small hometown of Tullahoma, TN.
