Dustin Charles Lynch (born May 14, 1985) is an American country music singer and songwriter, signed to Broken Bow Records. Lynch has released three albums for the label: a self-titled album in 2012, Where It's At in 2014, and Current Mood in 2017. He has also released eight singles, of which five have reached the No. 1 position on Country Airplay.

Early life

Dustin Lynch, a native of Tullahoma, Tennessee, attended Tullahoma High School and graduated in 2003. He started playing guitar when he was around 8 or 9 but soon abandoned it, and then picked it up again at 15. When he was 16, he performed at the Bluebird Cafe; in Nashville on an open mic night and was well received by the audience, so he decided to start a band.[3] Lynch moved to Nashville, Tennessee in 2003 where he studied Biology and Chemistry at Lipscomb University. According to Lynch, he chose Lipscomb because it is located near the Bluebird Cafe; where he would play and learn the craft of songwriting while at college.[4][5] He gained a B.S. degree in biology in 2007, and although he was interested in going to medical school, he decided to pursue a career in music.[3]

Lynch wrote the song with Josh Leo and Tim Nichols.[6] That same month, Country Weekly began streaming his songs on its website.[7]

The self-titled debut album, Dustin Lynch, was released in August 2012 and reached number one on the Top Country Albums chart.[8] The album's second single, "She Cranks My Tractor", became his second top 20 hit in early 2013. It was followed by "Wild in Your Smile", which made the top 30.

Lynch also co-wrote James Wesley's 2013 single "Thank a Farmer".[9]
