Lynch zooms to top of chart

Wednesday, August 29, 2012 – Dustin Lynch's self-titled debut album will become the number one country album when the chart is officially released by Billboard on Thursday.

"Today is honestly one of the best days of my life," said the 27-year-old Lynch from his home in Nashville. "I moved up here to Nashville right out of high school without knowing a soul. I dreamed of and have been working for this moment my whole life - and to be sitting here with a number one album just seems unreal. I can't say 'thank you' enough to country radio, my label and management and all of my fans that come out and support me every night. You've made my dreams come true."

Lynch took over the top of the chart from Zac Brown Band's "Uncaged." Lynch became the only new male act to have his inaugural album debut at the top of the Billboard Country Albums Chart in 2012.

Lynch's debut single, Cowboys and Angels has surpassed 500,000 in single sales and gone into the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart.

Produced by Brett Beavers (Dierks Bentley) and Luke Wooten (Brad Paisley), the album has 13 tracks, 10 written or co-written by Lynch.

He said, "The concept was, 'Let's write songs, let's record songs that the fictional small-town boy ...
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 ...
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, ...
