Dustin Lynch Celebrates Clothing Line Launch at CMA Fest

Following a headlining performance at the “Music City Gives Back” concert, Dustin Lynch closed out CMA Music Festival with a performance at The Stage in downtown Nashville Sunday (6/12) to celebrate the launch of his clothing line “Stay Country.” The country star entertained the packed audience with his high energy set, including #1 smash “Mind Reader,” a preview of new music with “Small Town Boy Like Me,” and a round of karaoke roulette with special guests Tyler Rich and Adam Sanders. Before doors opened, fans lined up all the way down the main drive of Broadway to claim their spot for the free show and have the opportunity to purchase items from the “Stay Country” line.

“Stay Country isn’t just a brand, it’s a lifestyle,” says Lynch. “It’s where I grew up. It’s home to the rivers I’ve fished, the deer stands I’ve perched, and the dirt roads I’ve roamed. It inspired Stay Country.”

The line of accessibly-priced men’s and women’s shirts, hats, and accessories, all emblazoned with the distinctive Stay Country logo, can be found online at

Lynch, a Tullahoma, TN native, has long dreamed of creating his own fashion line. “I’ve always been a fan of what clothes say, especially now that I’m on stage every night,” he recently explained to WWD in a profile about his fashion acumen. “We introduced a simple hat last fall and we couldn’t keep it in stock. So it’s time, we’re off to the races.”

Notable fans of the line already include fashion maven Kelly Osbourne, who sported a camouflage Stay Country cap on her Instagram feed the Monday after meeting Lynch at the Stagecoach Music Festival in Indio, CA last month.

Beyond his busy entrepreneurial career, Lynch is currently in the studio working on the follow-up to his smash sophomore album, WHERE IT’S AT, in between opening dates on Luke Bryan’s KILL THE LIGHTS tour. This fall, he will join Chris Young’s I’M COMIN’ OVER tour as direct support.

LoCash’s Performance At CMA Music Festival Turns To Gold


No. 1 “I Love This Life” hit-making country music duo LOCASH was giving an infectious and high-energy live performance in the summer heat during the 2016 CMA Music Festival on Sunday when they were surprised by their record label head, David Ross of Reviver Records, with the exciting news that their top charting hit is officially RIAA Gold-Certified, selling over 500,000 copies.

Walking out on stage before the start of their final song in the set, Ross presented Chris Lucas and Preston Brust of the duo with their very first gold record plaques from Reviver to commemorate a half million in sales of the self-penned song.

“These are two of the hardest working guys in this business, and until you’ve seen their work ethic firsthand, you’ll never realize how deserving they really are to have achieved this milestone,” said Ross.

“I’m proud to have them on Reviver, and I’m proud to be a part of our amazing team who helped launch the success of this song; but most of all, I’m grateful to the fans – all of you – who’ve made this happen. We hope this is a first of many more major sales achievements for LOCASH,” he added.

LOCASH’s appearance at the 2016 CMA Music Festival also included another first for the duo – their first performance on the CMT Awards, where they sang “I Love This Life.” They made their national TV debuts with the song on the Today Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live! back in March.

Friday, June 17th, LOCASH will celebrate their debut full-length album release with Reviver, The Fighters, which includes “I Love This Life,” their latest single “I Know Somebody,” (which just broke into the Top 30 and is climbing), as well as several new songs that have already become popular with fans out on the road.

Catch them out on the road on tour! LOCASH has a full slate of dates on their calendar throughout the rest of 2016.
