Dustin Lynch Dropping New Album, Going on Tour in 2020
Dustin Lynch has announced the upcoming release of his fourth studio album, and revealed the cities and dates for a 2020 headlining tour.
Lynch will release a new album titled Tullahoma on Jan. 17. The singer draws more deeply from his personal life than ever before on the upcoming project, which is titled after his hometown of Tullahoma, Tenn.
“It’s all about me and growing up in my hometown,” the "Ridin' Roads" singer says in a press release. “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."
Lynch produced the new album with co-writer and co-producer Zach Crowell, marking the first time he's used one producer all the way through a project. Lynch aims to tell a "universal story about coming of age and discovering yourself" with the new collection of songs.
“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,” Lynch states.
“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," he reflects. "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."
Lynch will support the new album with a series of concerts he is dubbing the Stay Country Tour 2020, which kicks off Jan. 30 in Detroit and runs through March 28, wrapping up with a show in Mt. Pleasant, Mich. Travis Denning will join him on the road as his support act. Tickets for some dates of the Stay Country Tour 2020 are set to go on sale Friday, Nov. 15 at 10AM local time. A portion of each ticket sold will benefit Lynch's charitable Cowboys and Angels Fund.
