Small Town Roots

Dustin Charles Lynch was born on May 14, 1985 in Tullahoma, Tennessee. Music ran deep in Lynch‘s family – his father played guitar and his grandfather was a pedal steel player. Lynch grew up listening to country legends like Merle Haggard, Randy Travis, and Alan Jackson.

At age 16, Lynch got his first guitar and started writing his own songs and playing local shows around his hometown. After high school, he moved to Nashville to attend college and pursue his dreams of making it in the country music business.

Nashville Dreams

In Nashville, Lynch studied Commercial Music at Lipscomb University and spent years playing small venues, networking, and working to improve his songwriting and performance skills.

In 2011, after years of perseverance, Lynch finally caught a big break – he signed a record deal with Broken Bow Records. He was about to make the leap from playing college bars in Nashville to having his music heard across the country.

"I‘ve been chasing this dream for a long, long time. To finally get that record deal felt like all the hard work was starting to pay off." – Dustin Lynch

Chart-Topping Songs

Lynch‘s self-titled debut album dropped in 2012 and soon produced his first #1 single – the platinum-certified "Cowboys and Angels." This nostalgic love song established Lynch as one of country music‘s most promising new artists.

Over the next few years, Lynch continued finding success on the charts with hit songs like "Small Town Boy," "Where It‘s At," and "Seein‘ Red." He became known for his heartfelt lyrics, strong melodies, and blending of modern and traditional sounds.

In 2019, Lynch‘s single "Ridin‘ Roads" off his album Tullahoma reached #1, marking his fourth chart-topping hit. He had proven his staying power in Nashville‘s competitive country music scene.

Giving Back to Tennessee

Despite his growing fame, Lynch remains dedicated to his Tennessee roots. He often returns to Tullahoma to visit family and friends. He also supports charitable organizations like St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, which hits close to home for the small-town singer.
