Lynch receives a surprise

Tuesday, June 30, 2015 – Dustin Lynch received a surprise Friday from the RIAA with a Platinum plaque certifying 1 million in sales and streams for his multi-week number one single "Where It's At."

Lynch served as a special guest panelist alongside RIAA Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Cary Sherman and Broken Bow VP of Promotion Lee Adams for the first RIAA LIVE event of the summer at its Washington headquarters. Lynch gave acoustic readings of his hits "Where It's At," "Cowboys And Angels" and latest "Hell Of A Night."

After Lynch's performance, Sherman stepped onstage to present him with an official RIAA-certified plaque for his his chart topping single "Where It's At," the title track of his sophomore album.

"What a dream come true," said Lynch. "I have an incredible team of people that believe in me and my music and work so hard and spend time away from their families...this is theirs as much as mine. Big thanks to everyone at country radio that believed in this song and chapter two of my music."

"Where It's At" marks the second RIAA-certified Platinum single for the artist who was previously honored for his debut hit "Cowboys And Angels."

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, ...
