Dustin Lynch Scores Seventh #1 With “Ridin’ Roads”

Dustin Lynch has scored his seventh career #1 at Country radio – “Ridin’ Roads” marks his second chart-topper as a songwriter. The grooving middle-of-nowhere romance tops the Billboard Country Airplay chart this week while reigning the Country Aircheck/Mediabase chart for two consecutive weeks, with much more on the horizon.

Lynch’s latest #1 foreshadows a coast-to-coast road trip in support of his fourth studio release, Tullahoma, a fully realized concept album dedicated to his Tennessee hometown. Arriving January 17 and produced by Lynch’s longtime collaborator Zach Crowell, the LP has now delivered back-to-back #1s, with the irresistible “Good Girl” claiming the honor in early 2019.

Lynch is set to perform his newly minted hit on ABC’s Good Morning America and then, follows up with a late-night appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! Outdoor Stage in February.

Earlier (1/17), Lynch celebrated the release of Tullahoma with a blowout concert at Nashville’s Marathon Music Works – transporting his small-town north to Music City for one night only – and at 9am ET/8am CT on January 11 invites CMT’s Hot 20 Countdown on a deep dive into the album’s inspiration. With Lynch taking viewers around the real-life Tullahoma, he’ll do some actual “Ridin’ Roads” – introducing the people and places that shaped the Platinum artist he is today.

Meanwhile, Lynch embarks on another exciting trek January 30, opening the throttle on his headlining STAY COUNTRY TOUR 2020 in Detroit, MI. With newcomer Travis Denning along for the ride, Lynch will visit 15 markets from New York to Nevada before wrapping up March 28 in Mt. Pleasant, MI. Launching straight into a jam-packed summer concert schedule with high-profile festival stops, he’ll return to Stagecoach, Country Thunder and more.
