Dustin Lynch Offers an Update on His Third Album
All three singles from Dustin Lynch's sophomore album, Where It’s At -- including his most recent, "Mind Reader" -- landed at the top of the charts. Now, with the debut single from Lynch's upcoming third studio album, "Seein' Red," climbing up the charts, the singer is hoping that his winning streak will continue.
"Whenever the intro starts [during a concert], it's an immediate roar. That hasn't happened with a song yet, and I think we've turned the corner," Lynch recently told The Boot and other reporters. "We've had three [No. 1s] in a row, so people are expecting something from us, and I think that has a lot to do with it. It's been really cool though, to feel that buzz already."
Lynch is eager to get his new set of tunes into the hands of his fans, but he admits that he is having trouble finding the time to wrap up the project due to his busy touring schedule. The singer will conclude his time on Luke Bryan's Kill the Lights Tour at the end of October and then immediately join Chris Young on the final leg of his I'm Comin' Over Tour.
"Right now, I'm touring so much, that's the problem," Lynch confesses. "I don't have the time to get in the studio and really get after it, but I'm piecing it together. I'm halfway done with it, and I'll take my time and see how the fall shapes up and, selfishly, see where country music goes a little more. Because it's going everywhere right now. I'm just going to take my time."
Lynch co-wrote five of the songs on Where It's At, but he insists that he doesn't care if he gets any writing credits, as long as he likes the songs.
"It's just, the best song wins," Lynch explains. "I'm the last person to vote for one of my songs, because I'm always scared that I'll like it because I wrote it. It takes a lot of buzz from my village for me to even think one of my songs is good just because I'm afraid that, I wrote it, so I think it's good. Outside songs are easier ...
"I've been guessing long enough to know if something's unique and will stand out on the radio," he adds. "That's what it really comes down to."
