S&E Nashville is listening to… Dustin Lynch

After moving to Nashville in 2003 Dustin Lynch hit the pavement pushing his music. Eight long years later, he finally signed a deal with Broken Bow Records in 2011. He is a young, energetic, charismatic showman ready for the wild country music market and he is at the top of his game. Releasing his debut single “Cowboys and Angels” in January 2012 helped Lynch break his way into the country music scene and try his hand at stardom.

Sports & Entertainment Nashville is listening to Dustin Lynch because we are believers!

Lynch is a stand-alone guy in today’s country music market, making his own path. Wisely, he has mixed his influences with today’s edgy intensity and that puts him at the top of today’s contemporary country scene. His progressive musical vision is his strength, along with an authentic voice to match. His debut self-titled album reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, giving him a boost right out of the gate, and his single “Cowboys and Angels” ended the year as one of Billboard’s Top Five Country Songs of 2012. What sets him apart from other country music singers is his sheer drive to keep pressing on.

Lynch was raised in the small Tennessee town of Tullahoma, just over an hour southeast of Nashville. He developed his chops by performing in his hometown bars and at parties. Lynch created his progressive style throughout his sophomore album but his commercial sound was polished and honed by great producers Mickey Jack Cones, Brett Beavers and Luke Wooten. This kind of team is the reason Dustin Lynch can sell 2.4 million digital singles. Proving this kind of success “takes a village”, and Lynch is not afraid to share the credit. He knows he could not have done it by himself.

In 2013, Lynch opened for Keith Urban on his “Light the Fuse” tour. This introduced his music to an entirely new audience, expanding his reach and helping him rack up over 25 million views on YouTube. It was a launching pad to help him reach No. 1 on the MTV Music Meter.

Lynch is currently opening for Luke Bryan’s “Kick the Dust Up” tour at the seven stadium stops on this summer, and later this year Lynch will headline his own “Hell of a Night Tour.” With stops in over 35 cities across the country, Lynch will have the opportunity to put his own touch on what he learned from touring with Urban and Bryan in the past.

Opening for Lynch on the “Hell of a Night Tour” will be Chris Lane, as Lynch tries provide to the same opportunity to Lane that Urban and Bryan gave to him, setting the stage for future country stars.

Lynch now has two albums under his belt, successful tours with the biggest names in the business along with a headlining tour of his own on deck. That is all in addition to supporting an entire business called Dustin Lynch Music. We believe he has a lot more to say and many more albums to release to the world. That’s why we here Sports & Entertainment Nashville can’t stop listening to Dustin Lynch, and why we will certainly be grabbing tickets to his tour when it is near Nashville.
