When I look at the photo above, I can almost hear the roar of the Cedar Rapids crowd next spring when Dustin Lynch strides onto the stage. Oh yes, this is going to be a good one.

Dustin Lynch made his national debut in country music in early 2012 with the song "Cowboys and Angels." It would make it to #2 on the country charts.

Two years later, he released "Where It's At". It would turn into his first number one song. Now the owner of eight chart-toppers, Lynch's current single "Stars Like Confetti" is nearing the Top 10.

There are very few artists out there who have more fun on stage. It's contagious and while watching him perform, you soon realize you have almost as big of a smile on your face as he does.
