Dustin Lynch has released his three song Ridin’ Roads EP today. The “Ridin’ Roads” single premiered on Billboard.com yesterday.
Dustin shares, “We have a lot more colors to paint with than we did on the first album. I don’t think there are any more genre walls. It’s all about the lyric and the message, and we let the song steer us. If we dig it, we’ll take a chance.”
As for the new single, he told Billboard, “It’s a song that makes so much sense for me. Writing with intention of what you know. [‘Ridin’ Roads’ is] right down the lane of what this ‘Small Town Boy’ character says and does. This song fits that guy.I have a picture of that guy. I know exactly what he looks like. I know the truck he drives. I know what’s sitting in his console right now and in his cup holder,” he says. “I don’t specifically know that dude, but I have a picture of that guy because I know a lot of them in middle Tennessee. I’m now getting to tour all over the place and I realize that those guys — the small town boys — are all over the world.”
He adds, “I love the message of the song. It goes back to ‘Small Town Boy’ and reminds me of that guy in Tullahoma, Tennessee, that I was and still wish I was to an extent — being able to go back home and enjoy country roads and ride around with friends.”
A full fourth album of songs from Lynch is expected later this year.
