First Artist Featured in New College Football Series
PLATINUM-selling Broken Bow Records Country star DUSTIN LYNCH will become the first artist spotlighted on CMT Hot 20 Countdown’s new multi-platform expansion series “COUNTRY ON CAMPUS,” premiering tomorrow (9/15) at 9 a.m. ET/PT.
Hosted by veteran sports journalist Bonnie Bernstein (ESPN, CBS) and showcasing Country artists’ passion for college football, the new series follows a different star each week starting with Lynch – a Tullahoma, Tennessee, native who bleeds blue and orange in honor of the University of Florida Gators.
The series premiere follows Lynch as he attends the Gators’ first home game of the season, getting a behind-the-scenes look at where his loyalty comes from – and a special on-field surprise. Lynch’s segment features Gator greats Steve Spurrier, Tim Tebow and Cris Collinsworth, and will launch exclusively on CMT Hot 20 Countdown with extended cuts available on CMT.com and across Hot 20’s digital platforms.
Lynch’s hip-swaying new single “Good Girl” is currently making its way up the charts, with its Bonnie and Clyde-inspired video out now. On September 18, the hitmaker will become the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry, and he’ll team up with Cole Swindell on the REASON TO DRINK…ANOTHER TOUR alongside special guest Lauren Alaina beginning October 4 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

About Dustin Lynch: Since releasing his PLATINUM-certified debut single, “Cowboys and Angels,” Lynch has “steadily built one of the most consistent recording careers in modern country music” (Billboard) with five consecutive #1s, three Top 5 albums, PLATINUM-level certifications and tours with the genre’s biggest names (Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, and Brad Paisley). Racking up over 232 million views on YouTube/VEVO, scoring 743 million-plus audio streams, soaring to #1 on the MTV Music Meter, and selling 4.5 million digital tracks, the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry brings a fresh combination of traditional influence and edgy intensity to the genre. Lynch’s “sexy” (CMT), “intoxicating” (Taste of Country) third studio album, CURRENT MOOD, debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart in Fall 2017. Produced by Brent Anderson, Mickey Jack Cones, Ross Copperman, Zach Crowell, and Will Weatherly, the boldly adventurous project features the GOLD-certified, #1 single “Seein’ Red” and PLATINUM-selling, multi-week chart-topper “Small Town Boy,” and aims to push the musical envelope even further. With accolades rolling in – including Billboard Music Awards, iHeartRadio Music Awards, and CMT Music Awards nominations – Lynch made his mark with high–profile appearances on CMA Fest, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, ACM Awards, Good Morning America, TODAY, and many more. Realizing his longtime dream of creating a fashion line, Lynch has also branched out to launch Stay Country.
