Lynch plays the outlaw
Thursday, September 6, 2018
– Dustin Lynch plays an outlaw who's living on love in the video for his new single, "Good Girl," premiering exclusively on Esquire
Directed by Mason Dixon and filmed in the Mojave Desert, the cinematic clip places Lynch and a dark-haired accomplice in the role of a modern day Bonnie & Clyde.
"It adds a tougher side to this song," said Lynch to Esquire. "It was hard to not be right on the nose with ("Girl") because it's a very fun and bubbly and light. We had several meetings where I thought I had great ideas and would go in and pitch and then people would start poking holes in it. It was tough, we're always trying to do something that people want to watch more than once. Mason Dixon knocked it out of the park."
The song was co-written by Lynch with Andy Albert and Justin Ebach.
Lynch will be inducted into the Grand Ole Opry on Sept. 18.

Like a lot of 'country' releases these days, Dustin Lynch's "Current Mood" includes a few songs that - if their quality had been duplicated throughout - would have made for one fine album. The ballad, "Love Me or Leave Me Alone," which also features Karen Fairchild (of Little Big Town), is a powerfully memorable song. It's followed by "Back on It" which, with its love/addiction analogy (although already done many times before) is nevertheless ...
Dustin Lynch is a throwback on his sophomore release thanks to the good-looking Tennessee native sporting a straw cowboy hat, Now that's something you don't see these days unless you happen to be King George Strait. Instead, the hat acts of yesteryear - the moniker, in reality, was a dig at those who were part of the same milk toast country sounds that were being put out in the '90s - traded them in for baseball caps.
Lynch is yet another in the seemingly endless line these days, ...
