Country cutie Dustin Lynch from Tullahoma, TN has been quickly taking over country music charts and stopped by Hamilton while on tour with Florida Georgia Line. We absolutely loved his energy on stage, so here are a few reasons he is this week’s Featured Artist!
If you haven’t been to a country concert before – let me tell you, you’re missing out on really fun night out! We recently had a chance to catch Dustin Lynch who was one of the openers for Florida Georgia Line on their “Dig Your Roots Tour” and now I am obsessed!
Lynch released his first self-titled album back in 2012 and since then has toured with huge names like Luke Bryan, Brad Paisley and Chris Young. He’s also performed at the iconic Grand Ole Opry and was recently featured on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
My first time listening to Dustin was through a VEVO country playlist, his single “Mind Reader” came up and right then I knew he would quickly become one of my favourites! Even fashion maven Kelly Osbourne (daughter of Rocker Ozzy Osbourne) loves Dustin’s country feel good vibes.
Lynch’s second album “Where It’s At” debuted at #1 on iTunes Country Albums Chart and over the last year he also started his very own clothing line “Stay Country“.
2016 ended with a big win on Spike TV’s Lip Sync battle – Dustin faced Cassadee Pope in a hilarious battle showing off his hip- hop swagger covering Ludacris’ “What’s Your Fantasy” as well as Lou Bega’s “Mambo No 5“. Watch the video here!
We’re sure this year will be even bigger for the Tullahoma native with another album on the way! He gave fans a preview at the show by playing music off the upcoming album as well as “Small Town Boy” – Dustin’s latest single which already has over 4 million views on YouTube!
In concert, Lynch had the best stage presence – we were definitely singing along! Everyone in the crowd felt like one huge family, there were fans of all ages in attendance. My favourite part had to be when Lynch called out a man in the crowd holding both a Bud Light and regular Budweiser. The whole crowd chanted for the man to chug those beers right away.
We can’t wait for Dustin to be back! Hopefully promoting the new album! Be sure to check out some of our favourites below:
