Dustin Lynch got off to a great start to his career in country music when his debut single went to #2 on the chart. He followed that up two more singles from that debut album. Both finished right around the twenty spot on the chart and that’s a solid debut for a new artist.
Then Dustin came out with his sophomore album and he ran off three straight number one hits. His career has been on the upswing and he might be on the cusp of reaching a new level of success.
Here is the first single from his upcoming third album. It sounds like another good one.
Seein’ Red – Dustin Lynch
Dustin Lynch walks the line of traditional country with modern country. He has a little rock edge to him, but also has the voice and the style that goes back to the days of old school country. It’s not an easy line to walk, but I think he does it well.
This song, on the surface, is a pretty straightforward song about being with the person you love and having a really good night. You’re going out on a hot date and all you can think about is being with each other and having a really great night.
In this case the hook is that the guy is seein’ red. The girl is completely blinding him to everything else going on in the world. He’s totally in love and feeling everything about her.
The songs works well because it’s sounds familiar while also sounding a little different. It’s a little Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line and Luke Bryan, but it also sounds a little different.
It sounds like a hit to me.
