Dustin Lynch may be used to singing for rowdy country crowds, but his gig on Friday night in Niceville, Florida (ironic eh) got a little out of hand, leaving Dustin with stitches. According to People.com, the singer wrapped the show with blood dripping down his face.

I was walking down the catwalk and wham, out of nowhere this beer can just nailed me in the face,” Lynch, 29, tells PEOPLE exclusively, “It was a completely full can and it felt like a baseball had hit me.”

The moral of the story is don’t throw beer cans, period,” Lynch tells PEOPLE. “It’s not cool. This guy caused an incident that almost ruined a great night. The crowd was insanely loud and supportive and that’s why I wanted to finish my show [despite the bleeding]. I didn’t want to get off the stage until I had to.”

I believe the moral of the story is, don’t assume a gig will live up to the city it’s played in…

More than 37 million American adults are currently living without a high school diploma, according to the U.S. Department of Education and country Music Star Dustin Lynch is helping to address this issue with a fun new public service ad (PSAs) produced by the Ad Council and the Dollar General Literacy Foundation.

Platinum-selling Country star Dustin Lynch’s new album – Where It’s At– was #1 on iTunes Top Country Albums Chart yesterday at press time. Dustin celebrated the release of his new album with fans outside the FOX News Channel Plaza in the heart of New York City yesterday morning. The corner of 48th and 6th Avenues was essentially transformed into an arena – complete with a pulsating light show – as the Broken Bow Records artist performed songs from Where It’s At, released yesterday.

Fans who filled the plaza and lined the streets were treated to a hip-swaying wake-up call with songs such as the Top 3 single “Where It’s At,” the heart-tugging “Daddy’s Boots,” the groove-laden “Halo” and the album track “Mind Reader” which is currently one of Spotify’s “Top 10 Most Viral Songs in the US.” The Dustin Lynch Album Release Party on the Plaza, which aired live nationally on FOX & Friends and streamed simultaneously on FOXandFriends.com, also gave way to a plethora of surprises – including a grand prize trip to Los Angeles for lucky fan Stefani Belina of Long Island, NY to join Lynch aboard a concert cruise off the coast of Marina del Rey later this week. Dustin also pre-taped a performance on CBS-syndicated The Queen Latifah Show and to be featured as this week’s KTLA “Music Spotlight.” Lynch will also join fans for two sold-out nights where he’ll perform a special set aboard a hornblower cruise ship off the coast of Marina del Rey, in partnership with KKGO/ Go Country.

Dustin Lynch Previews Sophomore Album “Where It’s At”

Dustin Lynch

The crowd at 3rd and Lindsley in Nashville was packed with fans and Music Row’s finest as Dustin Lynch offered up songs from his forthcoming album, “Where It’s At,” available this Tuesday, September 9.

It’s been two years since Lynch released his self-titled debut album, which launched his career with the hit “Cowboys and Angels.” He’s traveled a lot of miles and had a lot of experiences since that time, which helped shape the music of this new record.

“I’ve learned a lot about this country. All of these new landscapes, the Pacific Ocean, the desert, a real mountain. As a songwriter, you soak in all of that landscape. And along the way, I’ve met thousands of people, and relationships have budded from that… awkward moments, great moments. I think as a songwriter, you soak all of that in and that’s what comes out. And that’s what inspires me.”

Earlier this year he toured with Keith Urban, and the energy of Urban’s live show was a big influence in the creation of this album.

“The Keith Urban show is relentless. It’s up-tempo, high energy, hands in the air, people dancing the whole time. I wanted that. I was writing this album on the road with him and recording it while we were out there on that tour.”

Lynch co-wrote five of the new tracks, including “To the Sky,” “She Wants a Cowboy,” “Sing it to Me,” “Middle of Nowhere,” and his personal favorite, “Your Daddy’s Boots,” which describes a pivotal moment in a lot of people’s lives.

“I can always remember watching a groom hold back tears watching his bride dance with his father-in-law. And that moment signifies, ‘I’m now having to be him. The guy that’s been there for her since she was born, and is her everything, her world, the man she’s leaned on her whole life. I’m now taking that role over.’ I thought that would be a cool song to write from the groom’s shoes, to watch her dance.”

The new album also includes tracks not written by Lynch, like “World to Me,” that struck a chord with him enough to record.

“World to Me is a song that a couple of my buddies [Ash Bowers, Adam Craig, Matt Rogers] wrote, and it hit home. It even name checks the bar that we hang out in my hometown. It’s just one of those perfect fits.”

Lynch performed the new songs to an enthusiastic crowd, and even snuck in a Garth Brooks cover of “Rodeo” as a hats-off to one of his musical idols. He’s excited to hear new music from the legend, but wants to experience the new single in a special way.

“I’m saving that… I don’t wanna stream it on my phone; I wanna listen to it as a country music fan in my truck, or on the radio on the bus.”

The album “Where It’s At” will be available online and in stores beginning Tuesday, September 9. Keep up with Dustin Lynch on Twitter @dustinlynch or at www.dustinlynchmusic.com.
