Heading straight for sunny days ahead, Broken Bow Records star Dustin Lynch is finding the BLUE IN THE SKY with his fifth studio album, available everywhere NOW.
“BLUE IN THE SKY is OUT! I couldn’t be more proud of this album and where I’m at right now in my career,” shares Lynch. “Life couldn’t look any brighter coming off the success of “Thinking ‘Bout You,” and rolling into this next chapter with “Party Mode.” I’m pumped for everyone to hear these songs and do some life with them.”
Up for fun, ready to ride at a moment’s notice, living life on his own terms, and seeking all the sweetness (and maybe a little bit of trouble) that one can get, BLUE IN THE SKY is a grown-up party record that lands Lynch somewhere between George Strait and Brooks & Dunn. Serving up a sweltering, swaggering take on his forward-tilting traditionalism, this 12-track batch produced by Zach Crowell – with five to his songwriting credit – work like a handful of postcards from the kinds of moments you want to remember alongside party guests Riley Green, Chris Lane, and MacKenzie Porter – as featured on recent six-week #1 “Thinking ‘Bout You” collaboration.
Prescribing himself a surefire cure-all in brand-new swaying single, “Party Mode,” Lynch’s “90 proof way to make it work” buzzes with some serious side effects. A true barroom sing-along with a 2-for-1 hook, neon vocals, and on-the-house chasers of dobro and steel guitar, it finds a guy drowning his sorrows over lost love – only to end up right back where the party started.
Inviting his real-life friends Cornbread and Corbin Wilson to star in his “Party Mode” music video, the cinematic clip premiered on YouTube (10/2) as Lynch goes on a post-breakup getaway that he barely survives – literally. Directed by Mason Dixon, the Jerry Flowers, Ryan Beaver, Roman Alexander, Jared Keim, and Matt McGinn-penned lyrics serve it up strong as the ultimate soundtrack for a wild ride of Florida escapades.
First announcing the new album during an ABC’s Good Morning America appearance, Lynch is currently on a fast-track to a new level of stardom. As American Songwriter’s February digital cover exclusive, the music magazine hails, “Dustin Lynch Reaches for All the Stars on Fifth Album,” while he’s spotted in high-profile features with Nashville Lifestyles, The Tennessean, PEOPLE, and more.
