Looking back on it now, it’s probably our own fault for thinking Dustin Lynch could be one of the good guys. You see him with his strong jaw, refusing to ditch the cowboy hat despite what the Music Row image consultants tell him, and you just hope he could be one of the brave few to make it out of the other side of the sausage factory with a little bit of his dignity still in tact. His first single “Cowboys and Angels” back in 2012 had us all impressed, and singing his praises. He was the William Michael Morgan of his time.
But then Lynch chased “Cowboys and Angels” with “She Cranks My Tractor,” and that should have told us all we needed to know from there on out….
