Dustin LynchI heard “Cowboys and Angels” on the radio this evening on my way home from the office. I really liked the song, and had no idea who was singing it. Until I got home and started sifting through about a week’s worth of neglected e-mail. Seems the folks at Broken Bow Records had told me about this artist several days ago. I know nothing about Dustin Lynch, except that his debut single is good, and I am already a fan. I f you haven’t heard this song yet, you can hear it here, and then call your favorite radio station and request it.

Since I’ve already admitted I don’t know anything about Dustin, let me just put the press release for all of you – we can meet him together!

Dustin 1Broken Bow Records, home to superstar Jason Aldean, is pleased to introduce singer-songwriter
Dustin Lynch, whose highly anticipated debut single, “Cowboys and Angels,” impacts Country Radio today.

Written by Dustin Lynch alongside Grammy award-winning songwriter Tim Nichols as well as #1 songwriter and producer Josh Leo, “Cowboys and Angels,” is a sweeping, lyrical epic.  A visually stunning, love ballad evoking images of romantic heroes and showcasing Dustin’s distinctively deep, emotional vocals.                          

“Cowboys and Angels” is available now on iTunes at: http://bit.ly/dlcowboysandangels

Dustin 3Today also marks the launch of Country Weekly’s exclusive online series, “CW on the DL,” which will bring new Dustin Lynch music to fans first – straight out of the studio. Beginning today (through Feb. 28, 2012), fans can visit:  www.countryweekly.com/dustinlynch to stream Dustin’s debut single as well as watch the exclusive acoustic music video for, “Cowboys and Angels.”  CountryWeekly.com also treats fans to a, “Best of Tuesdays on the DL,” webisode featuring Dustin’s behind-the-scenes travels as he zigzags the country performing live shows and embarking upon antics on the road.

Influenced in his youth by such stalwart country singers as Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks and Clint Black, Dustin Lynch obtained a fake ID – not for underage drinking – but for a much bigger purpose.  He needed one to pursue his dream…a career in music.

Dustin 2Understanding the legacy and importance of The Bluebird Cafe, he chose his college – David Lipscomb University – in part because it was less than two miles from the club, which proved immensely important in his development.  The Tullahoma, Tennessee native rented an apartment behind the venue’s back parking lot and literally walked to the Bluebird several times a week to listen and learn about the mysterious art of creating songs from some of Nashville’s most important writers.

That education paid off in a big way for Dustin. He signed with Broken Bow Records – the home of Jason Aldean and sister label to Stoney Creek Records (home to Thompson Square).

Dustin4After honing his skills on the southeastern club circuit, making him one of Country music’s most buzzed-about ‘Artists to Watch in 2012,’ Dustin is currently in the studio working with producer Brett Beavers (known for his work with Dierks Bentley) and engineer Luke Wooten (Brad Paisley, Sunny Sweeney) on his debut album (due later this year) with a backlog of his own songs.

Fans will be treated to a raucous fully plugged set of Dustin’s dynamic brand of party songs and ballads as he headlines Nashville Lifestyle’s 8th Annual “Music in the City” event on January 31st at The Tin Roof in Nashville at 5:30 pm.  Tickets are $20 in advance and can be purchased here.  Proceeds benefit Keep Music in Music City.

You can catch this kid everywhere, on Twitter @dustinlynch; on Facebook; his MySpace page; YouTube; and of course his web site.

I think we’ll be hearing a lot more from this newcomer.
