What country artist has four straight number one hits?
Nope to all those…
Okay, Luke is riding a hot streak right now at nine going on ten.
Anyway, don’t look now, but Dustin Lynch has four straight top singles and it sounds like he could have a five back on his hands with this next one.
Small Town Boy – Dustin Lynch
This one is right in the Bro Country pocket.
But you know what?
I’m a fan of some good Bro Country. I know that by now it’s getting kind of overplayed, but it doesn’t mean that this little sub genre can’t produce some really good songs.
Small Town Boy has some recognizable lyrics. We’ve heard them over the last few years, but what kind of sets this one off as different is the production.
It’s pretty slick. It’s pretty catchy and flashy. The electric guitars are there and the whole thing. But it’s all mixed with Dustin’s country twang and it all works pretty well.
This style of song has been what has been working really well for Dustin the last couple years. He came out with Cowboy’s & Angels. That thing was stone country.
He definitely has it in him for those old school country songs. His voice is perfect for it. But you can tell that he has a wide range of musical interests and influences and it’s good to see him mixing a little pop with country.
It works on this one.
