DUSTIN LYNCH is celebrating his first iHeartRadio Awards nomination as his undeniable summer anthem “Small Town Boy” will contend for Country Song of the Year at the iHeartRadio Music Awards broadcasting live from Los Angeles Sunday, March 11 on TBS, TNT and truTV.
“I couldn’t be more grateful that ‘Small Town Boy’ has been nominated for Country Song of the Year,” says Lynch. “It’s been amazing to see people embrace this song and have the continued support of Country radio. I’m looking forward to celebrating all of these great songs with friends at the iHeartRadio Awards.”
“Small Town Boy” – Lynch’s FIFTH consecutive #1 hit – topped the Billboard Country Airplay charts for a career-record four straight weeks, making it the chart’s longest-running #1 of 2017. The hitmaker performed the GOLD-certified smash (written by Rhett Akins, Ben Hayslip and Kyle Fishman) across the airwaves, hitting the stage on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! and CMA Fest television special, NBC’s TODAY and Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and CBS’ The Talk.
Lynch’s follow-up single, “I’d Be Jealous Too,” is poised to leave its mark on Country radio, already within the Top 40 and climbing swiftly. The “one-of-a-kind, natural showman” (Morning Hangover) hits the road in January, performing at Luke Bryan’s beachside festival Crash My Playa and returning as featured support on Brad Paisley’s WEEKEND WARRIOR WORLD TOUR, which kicks off Jan. 25 in Los Angeles.
