Country music singer and songwriter Dustin Lynch was born and raised in Tullahoma, Tennessee, and grew up influenced by what he calls "the class of \'89," Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks, and Clint Black, all of whom had their first national success in 1989. Lynch moved to Nashville to attend college and to be closer to the country music\'s epicenter in 2003, renting an apartment behind Nashville\'s Bluebird Café, famous as a testing and proving ground for young songwriters. Eventually Lynch earned a performance spot at the Bluebird, and he honed his skills, branching out to gig at other venues on the Southeast club circuit. His big break came in 2011 when he was discovered by Justin Moore\'s manager through Lynch\'s MySpace page, and it led to a management contract with L3 Entertainment, a publishing deal with Super 98/The Song Factory, and a record deal with Broken Bow Records. Broken Bow released Lynch\'s debut single, "Cowboys and Angels," in 2012.
Country music singer and songwriter Dustin Lynch, born and raised in Tullahoma, Tennessee, honed his songwriting skills at Nashville\'s famous Bluebird Café, where he learned the ins and outs of the trade from some of the town\'s best writers like Don Schlitz, Tony Arata, and Paul Overstreet, and that skill shows on his self-titled debut album from Broken Bow Records. Lynch wrote or co-wrote ten of the 13 songs on the debut album, which was produced by Brett Beavers and engineered by Luke Wooten, including the album\'s lead single, "Cowboys and Angels," which Lynch co-wrote with Tim Nichols and Josh Leo.
