CountryTown in partnership with iHeartCountry Australia is proud to announce Tennessee-native, Dustin Lynch as our Artist Of The Week.
CountryTown is proud to announce Dustin Lynch as our Artist Of The Week, following the release of his fifth studio album, Blue In The Sky.
The Tennessee-native began playing guitar around 8 years old, later abandoning it, before picking it up around at 15. The following year, he performed at the Bluebird Café in Nashville on an open mic night. Being well received by the audience, he decided to start a band. He continued to develop his craft in songwriting and performing while earning a university degree in biology. Although he said he was interested in going to medical school, he decided to pursue a career in music instead.
He released his debut single, Cowboys and Angels in 2012, off his self-titled debut album. The album reached number one on the Top Country Albums chart, and produced two more charting singles – She Cranks My Tractor and Wild In Your Smile. Albums Where It’s At (Yep, Yep) (2014), Current Mood (2017) and Tullahoma (2020), as well as an EP titled Ridin’ Roads (2019) followed. To date, he has achieved eight number ones, four Top 5 albums, eight gold and platinum certified singles, and over 3 billion global on-demand streams.
Lynch has headlined packed venues and toured with country’s biggest names like Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Brad Paisley, and co-written with artists like Dallas Smith, James Wesley and Brett Kissel. He has earned industry recognition as a Grand Ole Opry member (since 2018), as well as high-profile nominations for the Billboard Music Awards, ACM Awards, and CMT Music Awards.

His latest album, Blue In The Sky is a twelve-track collection that looks on the bright side as it pumps optimism into the muscular melodies of the chart-topper’s power-country sound. Produced by Zach Crowell with five tracks to Lynch’s songwriting credit, the party-starter welcomes collaborators Riley Green, Chris Lane and MacKenzie Porter – who appears on Broken Bow Records’ longest-reigning single at country radio with recent six-week number one, Thinking ‘Bout You.
Lynch says, “Get ready for a collection of songs that are going to make you feel good and want to mix a drink and party with your friends. I’m excited for everyone to hear Blue In The Sky.”
