Dustin Lynch released his new album Blue in the Sky today, his follow up project from Tullahoma in 2020. He stopped by The Bobby Bones Show to share all the details about it, plus talk about the other career he’s pursuing.
Blue in the Sky is admittedly different than Lynch’s other albums in a big way. When he started this album he was in a relationship, and then went through a breakup and came out on the other side of it. Because of the ups and downs of his life throughout the project’s creation, he feels like it overall has an optimistic sound to it. There’s a song on the album “Break It On A Beach,” that actually details how the breakup went down from his ex-girlfriend’s perspective. Continuing to share details on their split, Lynch revealed that their breakup all happened in person on a really long walk. Lynch hasn’t told his ex-girlfriend about the song, adding that he doesn’t think she will listen to this new album. He learned a lot about himself from that relationship, especially how to co-exist with someone since they lived together during the pandemic.
Lynch’s new album also features a collaboration with Riley Green called “Huntin’ Land.” The song was written as a joke about one Lynch’s buddy’s wives whose family owns a lot of hunting land. After they wrote it, Lynch knew that it was meant to be a collaboration with Green. “Stars Like Confetti” is another one of the songs on the album and it was co-written by Thomas Rhett. Lynch shared that the song happened because of his producer being Rhett’s next door neighbor.
New music isn’t all that Lynch is working on. He’s currently learning to be a pilot and he’s only one lesson away from flying on his own. He admitted that’s when this new hobby of his is going to get real. While Bobby Bones gave Lynch a hard time about his new hobby being dangerous, Lynch shared the reason why he wanted to do it. He likes to go hunting and flying his own plane would make it easier for him to get in and out of his farms.
