Dustin Lynch will follow-up his 2017 album, Current Mood, with the release of his fourth studio album, Tullahoma, on Jan. 17. The new project takes its name from Dustin’s Tennessee hometown, which is about 80 miles southeast of Nashville.
“It’s all about me and growing up in my hometown,” says Dustin. “Every song on this album points to something that happened to me or my close friends and family, and that’s really cool. I’m very proud of where I’m from, and proud of this record because it will hopefully make my hometown a little more famous than it already is.”
The upcoming album will include the three songs—“Ridin’ Road,” “Little Town Livin’” and “Red Dirt, Blue Eyes”—from Dustin’s 2019 EP, Ridin’ Roads, as well as his 2018 standalone single, “Good Girl.” Longtime friend and frequent co-writer Zach Crowell co-produced the album with Dustin.
“I’ve done a lot more living than I’ve done in the past, because this is the first time I’ve been able to tour and also feel like I have a life outside of that,” says Dustin. “It’s figuring out what I enjoy about life the most—outside of music. The kind of stuff my mom and dad, my family and my friends back home did growing up. Outdoors stuff like hunting and fishing, hanging out in the backyard around a bonfire, just connecting. I long to be that kid again, and I think we all do. You get to a certain point in life and start reflecting on why you’re where you’re at . . . and I’ve just figured out that’s what makes me tick. That’s why I work hard.”
In addition to the album, Dustin will hit the road on Jan. 30 for his headlining Stay Country Tour. Travis Denning will serve as support. Tickets for select dates go on sale on Nov. 15 at 10 a.m. local time.
