Dustin Lynch to release 6th studio album!
On September 29, 2023, Dustin Lynch will release his much anticipated sixth studio album, 'Killed The Cowboy'.
Lynch, by his own admission, finds himself at a crossroads in life as the single 38 year old decides whether to settle down and start a family or continue to live out his wildest dreams on the road and in the studio. This record explores those thoughts and feelings.
Speaking of the album, Lynch said, “When I’m off the road and working on my farm, I have a lot of inner dialogue. It’s a boxing match inside of me, between living in the moment and enjoying where I am, versus what's the best version of me five, 10, or 20 years down the road."
He continues, “What do I want to be? What do I want life to look like? Who do I want to be around? Killed The Cowboy is that back-and-forth. It’s me asking myself, ‘Am I okay? Or am I weird for not having found my person yet? And is she even out there?’ My hope is that this album finds someone who needs to hear it. I want Killed The Cowboy to embrace the single people of the world and lift them up, to let them know that you don’t have to live a ‘normal’ life to still be happy in your own skin.”
Ahead of the launch, Lynch is now featured across Paramount’s billboards in New York City’s Times Square in partnership with CMT.
This 12-track album which features five songs co-written by Lynch himself, is a stand-out collection where Lynch celebrates and offers companionship to those who are single in a world which so often focuses on 'finding the one'.
Lynch released the title track today saying, “When I first heard ‘Killed The Cowboy,’ I was drawn to its haunting melody, and then I got to thinking about the lyric and realized, ‘Damn, I'm this guy right now in my life. Relationships can come in hot and heavy and then implode. But that heartbreak, in a weird way, also makes you feel alive, to have another person move you like that. You feel that roller coaster of emotion and passion, and that sparks me creatively as an artist.”
