Country on the River to Benefit Operation Toop Aid

OperationTroopAid_logo_lrg

Country On The River, a multi-day music festival taking place in Iowa on June 20 – 21 and Wisconsin on August 7 – 9, has named Operation Troop Aid as the official charity.

The Iowa festival will feature performances by Gary Allan, Bret Michaels, Montgomery Gentry, Gretchen Wilson, Thompson Square, Tracy Lawrence, Lonestar and Joe Diffie. The Wisconsin festival will feature performances by Jason Aldean, The Band Perry, Tracy Lawrence, Kix Brooks, Thompson Square, Sawyer Brown, Dustin Lynch, Parmalee and Trick Pony.

“We are very honored to have Operation Troop Aid with us at Country On The River. The support they bring to our troops is invaluable. Country On The River is committed to the Troop Aid cause and we fully support their efforts. We look forward to having Operation Troop Aid in both Iowa and Wisconsin,” says festival organizer Scott Sheckler.

Since its inception, Operation Troop Aid has garnered the support of music celebrities across multiple genres, from KISS to Toby Keith and Cheap Trick to Charlie Daniels. Operation Troop Aid’s mission is to make a positive difference and inspire deployed U.S. service members by letting them know America stands with them. Operation Troop Aid provides care packages and bill assistance with revenue generated through professional concert promotions, entertainment initiatives and public financial generosity.

In addition, Operation Teddy Bear, which started in 2012 as an initiative of Harris Jewelry, continues in support of our military, both at home and abroad through the sale of uniformed teddy bears. Teddy Bears representing all branches of the military can be purchased for $15.00 at www.operationtroopaid.org or www.mybuddybears.com. To date, Operation Teddy Bear has raised over $100,000 to help Operation Troop Aid, a 501(c)3 organization, send care packages to deployed personnel and sponsor events for military families and communities.

Dustin Lynch Releases “Where It’s At”

Dustin Lynch’s newest single, “Where It’s At” is available for purchase now. Two weeks in a row “Where It’s At” has been the most-added song in country radio, with 79 first-week stations added. This is Lynch’s first release since releasing three singles in 2012 from his self-titled debut album (including his top five hit “Cowboys and Angels”) and touring the U.S. opening for Keith Urban.

Produced by Mickey Jack Cones and written by Cary Barlowe, Zach Crowell, Matt Jenkins, “Where It’s At” celebrates the simple things in life .

“We all can get decked out, dressed up, go out to a fancy dinner and do all the sparkly things in life but we always end up heading back to the house. That’s where the true love is and happens,” says Lynch. Adding, “There’s nothing more real than just being with somebody else. Having someone else in your life that makes good days better is unmatchable. Having the love of someone to come home to at night. . .that’s really ‘Where It’s At.’”

The up-tempo summertime anthem features a rhythmic assortment of acoustic guitars, electric guitars, synth sounds, drums, percussion and of course vocals (background vocals performed by Mickey Jack) that come to together to create a sound unlike anything we’ve ever heard from Dustin Lynch.

“I was looking to create a different sound for “Where It’s At” – a sound that brought an organic energy to Dustin’s record without compromising the integrity of his traditional roots. From the acoustic guitar driven signature, to my slide ukulele solo (that I somehow pulled off with a broken string), this single has a unique sonic stamp and a catchy ear-worm quality that will hopefully resonate well with listeners” says Mickey Jack Cones. Cones, who is currently wrapping up production on Lynch’s sophomore album for Broken Bow Records, in the last year, has also produced the number the 1 hit “Sunny and 75″ for Joe Nichols, Joe’s current single “Yeah”, which is at number 25 and climbing fast on the Billboard charts this week as well as the ‘hit-filled’ timeless Merle Haggard tribute album, “Working Man’s Poet: A Tribute To Merle Haggard.”

“Where It’s At” marks the first single to be released off Dustin Lynch’s sophomore album at Broken Bow Records.

Dustin Lynch Needs a Date

Dustin Lynch may be taking romance to the next level in with his new single, “Where It’s At,” but he tells Radio.com that he’s not exactly wining and dining anyone in real life.

“Oh gosh. You know, I haven’t been on a date in years,” he said. Even if it’s been a while, he does have an image of what would make for a good one. “I love great dinners. [And] I think anywhere on the water is a great date for me. Probably the perfect date would be somewhere in Northern California on the coast. Maybe in Big Sur. I just recently visited and there are some really awesome lookouts. I think a picnic on the edge of one of those cliffs would be amazing.”

I’m sure there are plenty of girls who would be willing to take Dustin out and show him a good time.

“We all can get decked out, dressed up, go out to a fancy dinner and do all the sparkly things in life but we always end up heading back to the house. That’s where the true love is and happens,” says Lynch. There’s nothing more real than just being with somebody else. Having someone else in your life that makes good days better is unmatchable.
