Dustin Lynch is getting his summer off to a “good” start, unveiling brand new music and the groove-country vibes of his new single “Good Girl.”
After performing the song live for the first time at the iHeartCountry Festival by AT&T in Austin, TX, on Saturday (May 5th), “Good Girl” made its world premiere across iHeartCountry radio Sunday (May 6th). The track just felt too perfect for the moment to hold back any longer.
We came across something that I just fell in love with immediately, and we just said, ‘Well, why not just go and record the song?’ And once we did that, I got to thinking, ‘Man, I can’t live with this song not being heard this summer,’” Lynch said in a video message to fans. “So, I called my record label, they were cool with going ahead and letting me record it, and then I asked, ‘Man, what if we went ahead and put this out for summer ’18. Like, I can’t wait all year long to put this out next year, or something.’ And they were like, ‘Well, hell yeah!'”
Written by Lynch with Justin Ebach and Andy Albert, and produced by Zach Crowell, “Good Girl” taps back into the classic-meets-contemporary sound of Lynch’s biggest country hits. Doused in sunshine and overflowing with effortless romance, the lucky-to-be-me anthem is all about living the good life…one where the right partner makes even the best of times better. It follows closely after a remarkable streak of five straight GOLD or PLATINUM-certified #1 singles – two of which stemmed from the Tullahoma, TN native’s 2017 Top 5 album, “Current Mood” (“Seein’ Red” and “Small Town Boy”).
Lynch’s performance ranked as one of the night’s “best moments” (iHeartRadio) when he surprised the crowd with the “new summer jam” (Whiskey Riff) at the 2018 iHeartCountry Festival Saturday (May 5th), taking place at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, TX. The boundary pushing singer-songwriter is also on the bill for this year’s all-genre iHeartRadio Music Festival, which takes place September 21st–22nd in Las Vegas.
Meanwhile, Lynch is up for his first-ever Billboard Music Award on May 20, nominated in the coveted Top Country Song category for his Platinum-certified, multi-week #1, “Small Town Boy.” The star-studded ceremony will air live on NBC at 8:00 p.m. ET from Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena.
Having just wrapped his run as the featured supporting artist on Brad Paisley’s “Weekend Warrior World Tour”, Lynch is slated to perform at North American fairs and festivals through September.
