Lynch is a singer-song writer who has come up with hits such as “Cowboys and Angels” and “She Cranks My Tractor”.
His self-titled debut album which was released in August of 2012 quickly climbed the Country charts to No. 1.
Big name singers have influenced his writing and music styles. He looks up to Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks and Clint black.
Starting his career by listening to artists at the Bluebird Café in Nashville, Lynch made it a point to listen to songwriters.
He even rented an apartment behind the venue in order to walk there to listen, and try to learn the art of songwriting.
Lynch says he was “taking it in, trying to be a sponge,” he was trying to listen to the stories behind the songs, and really get a good concept of what the songs were really about. Many of his idols had also come from the depths of Nashville’s Bluebird Café, which has helped launch country singers and songwriters for over 30 years.
This type of education paid off when manager Pete Hartung, had found Dustin’s MySpace page and decided he wanted to get involved, with the writer. Within weeks Dustin had a publishing contract, and managed to write a whopping 200+ songs in less than two years.
Lynch’s debut single, “Cowboys and Angels,” landed at No. 4 on the Billboard’s top Country Songs.
Lynch recently co-wrote a song which is performed by James Wesley, called “Thank A Farmer”.
In August of 2012 Lynch’s debut album opened the Country Albums chart at No. 1. Deemed by the Rolling Stone magazine as Nashville’s newest hitmaker and Billboard Magazine deemed him as the “Most anticipated debut of 2012.”
