Dustin Lynch Co-Hosts 1/7-8

| January 2, 2023

This week’s co-host is Dustin Lynch, who had the #1 song of 2022 with “Thinking ‘Bout You.” Dustin is a few weeks away from Luke Bryan’s Crash My Playa in Mexico: “It’s something my band & I count down to and look forward to for months in advance.  Back as the mayor, hosting once again the craziest pool party that will go down for the year. Thank God we’re in Mexico, cause there’s no rules and we can get away with a lot.”

In addition to Luke Bryan, the other headliner will be Cole Swindell. “Cole & I did the first Playa together six years ago. He’s coming back in and playing the big stage.  My band’s asking if we can get guests at the pool, and I said, if I’m a betting man, I think Cole shows up with a margarita.”

Dustin recognized a new artist and new song in our Top 30: “Wild As Her” by Corey Kent. “I met Corey Kent in 2012.  I did a show in Oklahoma, and Corey opened for me.  Fast forward many years, and I hear this song called Wild As Her.  Morgan Wallen was singing the demo. I ended up passing on it, and not long afterwards, I saw Corey Kent was singing this song I passed on.  What a full circle moment.”

Later this year, Dustin will tour with Kane Brown: “I’m really proud to be going out on tour with him this year.  We’ve got to hang out a few times together.  One was his birthday, we did a Halloween party at his place, and I can tell we will blow the roof off these places. It’s gonna be a lotta fun.”

Dustin will release a new single later this month, and it’s actually written by Thomas Rhett: “We were out on my boat, and I heard the song, played it for friends, and they loved it, so I cut it, and ‘Stars Like Confetti’ will be my new single. God knows Thomas needs the money with four daughters.  This guy’s bills are gonna be crazy for the next 20 years. ‘TR, you’re welcome bud, Uncle D’s comin’ in with more money for ya!'”

Dustin also has great stories this week about Dierks Bentley, Jimmie Allen, Hardy, Jelly Roll, and Lainey Wilson.
