GRAND RAPIDS, MI — Singer-songwriter Dustin Lynch was looking out the window of a bus on an Iowa highway watching snow-covered fields whiz by.
“I’ve never been in these parts,” said Lynch, 27, during a phone interview on the way to a Des Moines concert.
“But it looks like there’s a lot of cornfields out here.”
Agriculture is of some interest to the artist – although his current country music hit “She Cranks My Tractor” certainly isn’t exclusively about farming (though the lyrics do mention “cornfields flyin’ by.”)
“My first job was helping out at an angus farm down the road,” recalled the rural Tullahoma, Tennessee, native.
“I was maybe 13 or 14 when I started – big enough to grab a bale of hay and toss it up. I’ve got a little of that in me,” he noted.
But music was always on his heart. And these days Lynch is a country music artist come into his own — off the farm and into the fast lane.
The singer’s self-titled debut CD came last August, after his first hit (“Cowboys and Angels”) has climbed the country charts.
Now “Tractor” is winding its way up the music lists.
“Actually, it’s been moving twice as fast as ‘Cowboys and Angels’ did,” he said.
As a kid Lynch was fascinated with Garth Brooks.
“He was like my superman – I dressed up like him and sang his songs and that’s the reason I picked up guitar and started to play.”
Lynch fronted his own band at 15, performing and discovering the thrill of getting reaction to an original song.
He moved to Nashville at 18 to attend college while also pursuing his dream of writing country music.
“I moved there and sort of dove right in,” he said of the music business. “I just had to go out and get in the middle of it.”
He earned a science degree and worked a day job at a chemistry lab while still building his music connections. A publishing deal helped him highlight his songwriting skills, and finally won him his own recording contract.
Lynch has written hundreds of song.
“I’ve got some songs that are in the pot but we’re writing nonstop, including a couple of songs I think are really, really strong and I can’t wait to start trying them out.”
Lynch was the subject of a Country Network TV special last month, in which he invited fans on a behind-the-scenes trip to his hometown for a special acoustic performance.
“It was cool for the people who sing along with (the song “Dancing in the Headlights”) to take them to the actual Lazy Branch Road (mentioned in the lyrics) – you put a picture with the music,” he said.
Still on an upswing, Lynch will be opening on the giant Keith Urban/Little Big Town tour beginning this summer.
“He is such a rock star but down home and a sweet dude,” he said of Urban.
“I’ve bought concert tickets to see him, and the fact that I’ll get to take the stage with him is just a ridiculous happening.”
