Lynch gets fried with CMT

Friday, July 13, 2012 – Dustin Lynch will guest star on CMT Southern Fried Flicks with Hazel Smith this Sunday evening, at 8 p.m. eastern.

The Tullahoma, Tenn. native, whose debut single Cowboys and Angels is a Top 15 hit and has sold more than a quarter of a million singles to-date, visited Hazel's kitchen earlier this week where the two discussed Lynch's small-town upbringing, songwriting education at the world-famous Bluebird Cafe and Lynch's self-titled debut album due Aug. 21.

The episode features the film "Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls." The show will re-air that same evening at 11:45 p.m. eastern with an additional re-air on Tuesday, Aug. 14.

CD reviews for Dustin Lynch

Tullahoma CD review - Tullahoma
Dustin Lynch has made his bones on songs depicting small town life. It's only fitting that he would eventually make an album devoted solely to what he knows best. He calls "Tullahoma" a concept album. If you're thinking in the vein of "The Wall" or "Tommy," you're in for a disappointment. It's really an exercise in Country 101. He said, "The concept was, 'Let's write songs, let's record songs that the fictional small-town boy »»»
Current Mood CD review - Current Mood
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 »»»
Where It's At CD review - Where It's At
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, »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: The Lil Smokies provide the perfect antidote – On a night when the world to be falling further apart thanks to coronavirus (this would be the night the NBA postponed the season), there stood The Lil Smokies to at least in some small measure save the day. The quintet is part of a generation of musicians with bluegrass as the basis, but not totally the sum of the music either.... »»»
Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music – John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia. But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»

2020 CD review - 2020
Eliza Gilkyson hasn't ascended to the upper ranks of todays's foremost singer/songwriters purely on happenstance alone. Her albums affirm a belief in music as an essential salve, especially in times of dire distress and turmoil.  »»»
