There ain’t nothing wrong with a little fun. That’s exactly what Dustin Lynch is doing with this second single. The song is completely different from the first single Dustin just took all the way to the top of the country charts. Now he’s looking for a successful followup to keep his career heading toward the top.
Check it out.
She Cranks My Tractor – Dustin Lynch
You know what?
I wasn’t sure how to take this song at first, but as I listened to the entire song and then listened again I came around. You can’t take this one too seriously. It’s about love in the same way that Cowboys & Angels was but it’s just told in a different way and I think it works.
It’s always risky to come out with a fun, vanilla song for a single, but sometimes I think the artists need to go far away from the sound on the first record so fans can get a taste of something different. Even if this song doesn’t reach the top of the charts it will be good for Dustin. This shows that he can sing the fun honky tonk songs for the crowd and long-term it should be a good move.
On the charts this song could go two ways.
First, the fans could fall in love with the melody, which is pretty good, and take it to the top. Second, the fans could like the song, but not love it and the song could simply enter the top 20 and then allow Dustin to come out with another smash hit.
It’s easy for new artists to get pegged as a certain type of artist and I think Dustin Lynch is looking to broaden his scope. You can’t complain about that because he’s a talented singer with great songs.
