Dustin Lynch has found love. In fact, he did a long time ago. His love of music, writing, recording and performing has kept him on the road, but off the marriage map. His new album reflects on that and much more. 2014’s Top New Artist ACM Award winner is still at the game and crushing it. So let’s do some dishin’ with Dustin Lynch: The new album, the tour and his love of Boston. Check out my Dustin Lynch interview, below.

The New Album

The multi-platinum selling artist called the other day to talk about his brand new project, Killed The Cowboy. His sixth studio album was just released on September 29, 2023 and he’s excited to have it out there. Of the 12 tracks, Lynch co-wrote 5. He has also enlisted the talents of some of Nashville’s top songwriters and artists including Jameson Rodgers, Josh Thompson and Devin Dawson. For this album, there is one collaboration and it’s with Jelly Roll. It’s a jangly jam that borrows from Dobie Gray’s “Drift Away.”

The Tour

Dustin’s tour to support the new album hits the road soon and makes it’s way to Boston this May 2 (jacket weather for sure). Over the years, Lynch has played many venues, from the the Xfinity Center, to the House of Blues and most recently at the new MGM Music Hall. For the first time, Dustin will perform at the Leader Bank Pavilion in Boston’s seaport. He’s excited to check it out after he Google searched it. Get tickets to see Dustin at Leader Bank HERE.


In this Dustin Lynch interview, you’ll find out who he would love to collaborate with next, what one of his favorite Boston memories is and much more. The “Stars Like Confetti” singer loves sharing his career moments with his parents. And he’s had plenty in his nearly 10 year career. There has been 9 #1s. “Stars Like Confetti” just spent 2 weeks on top of our Country 1025 Top 25 Countdown. He’s sold out venues all over New England and had plenty of National TV exposure. He’s comfortable in his skin and his career and it’s clear in our chat you can listen to right here.


  • The Tour and Coming to Boston

    A hearty welcome on-air to Dustin! He is pumped to be coming back to Boston. He told me “You guys continue to blow our shows out…sell ’em out quickly and we continue to get to play bigger and better venues, and love you for it!” 

    By the way, he really did google “Leader Bank Pavilion” because it’s one of the few places he hasn’t played.

  • Killed The Cowboy

    Dustin’s new album is called Killed The Cowboy. Here, he talks about some big name writers he enlisted. Also, how he tries to write all the songs, but as he says, ” I always love trying to write ALL the songs, I’m just not good enough to get ’em all on there.”

    Lynch went on to say, “I’m constantly looking for THE best songs I can get my hands on.” He loves discovering newer songwriters that he can give a break, and “make them some money and change their life with it.”

  • Dustin on Billboards in NYC and His Journey To Get There

    Dustin is excited to see his face plastered on a billboard in NYC. He said he’ll be there soon during his album’s promo tour. Does he pinch himself or take a self or call mom and dad at these monumental career moments?  Here’s what he said about that:

    “I find myself getting lost in the moment and forgetting to document.”

    He also shared that one of the greatest things about his career on fire right now is getting to bring his parents along for the ride. “They’ll hop on a bus a couple of times a year and get to see some parts of the country they’ve never been to.”

  • Dustin TIme!

    Dustin is always up for a game, so I called this game “Dustin Time” so we can get to know one of our favorite artists better. Find out what he was doing to make money before music. You’ll learn what the smallest crowd he ever had was. (You don’t forget stuff like that). Also Lynch shares who he would love to do a collab with next, the last concert he saw and the best memory he has of Boston.
    All that and more, from the man himself, is here:

  • Listen To Dustin's Song With Jelly Roll

    Now, this is the collab we needed. Dustin and Jelly Roll rework the pop classic “Drift Away” and make it their own. I am so diggin’ this jangly jam.
