Dustin Lynch’s star continues to rise as the Broken Bow recording artist notches his third consecutive #1 single with “Mind Reader” landing in the top spot on both the Mediabase and Billboard Country Radio Airplay Charts this week. The sultry, R&B influenced song (co-written by Rhett Akins and Ben Hayslip) follows his previous two #1 smashes: GOLD-certified “Hell Of A Night,” and PLATINUM-certified “Where It’s At.” All three chart-toppers are featured on his latest album Where it’s At, which has quickly vaulted Lynch to stardom.

“I can’t thank everyone at country radio enough for believing in me and ‘Mind Reader’,” exclaims Dustin Lynch. “Next time we roll through town we WILL celebrate, so wear your party pants!”

To celebrate, Lynch will hit the Big Apple to perform on FOX & Friends All-American Summer Concert Series this Friday (5/27) starting at 6:00a ET on the FOX News Channel. Continuing the Memorial Day Weekend festivities, he will take the stage later that afternoon at the Country 500 Festival in Daytona Beach, FL.

Fans can catch Lynch at the upcoming 2016 CMA Music Festival in Nashville, TN when he headlines the “Music City Gives Back” concert on Tuesday, June 7 to benefit the W.O. Smith Music School.

Erin Andrews and football superstar J.J. Watt and will host the “2016 CMT Music Awards,” live on Wednesday, June 8th at 8:00 pm ET/PT from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

Best known for his defense on the field with the Houston Texans and for her role as a FOX/Sports broadcaster and host of “Dancing with the Stars,” Watt and Andrews are no strangers to intense competitions. This marks Watt’s first time as host, while Andrews’ returns for a second consecutive year after keeping the audience laughing and the artists on their toes.

“I’m thrilled to come back to Nashville to co-host the CMT Music Awards,” said Andrews. “I had so much fun last year, and I can’t wait to see what antics J.J. and I will get into together. Plus, there’s nothing better than seeing my favorite country artists get recognized for their great work.”

“Having presented at the CMT Awards last year, I got a first-hand look at the energy and excitement of the event and I am very excited to be involved in a much larger capacity this year as co-host,” said Watt. “There are two things that I know about the people of Nashville…they love country music and they know how to throw a party. When you put those two things together, it makes for one heck of a night. I can’t wait to host the awards with Erin and be part of such a great night, honoring the biggest stars in country music.”

CMT revealed the first round of performers last week that include show-stoppers like Blake Shelton, Chris Stapleton, Florida Georgia Line, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean and Thomas Rhett. Earlier this month, the network unveiled nominations for the 2016 “CMT Music Awards”, which pitted the reigning champion, Carrie Underwood, against powerhouse newcomers, Cam and Chris Stapleton for most nominations and the highly coveted “Video of the Year” win. For the first time, The CMT Music Awards will find out, will country royalty Carrie Underwood be able to defend her throne?

Additional performers and presenters will be announced at a later date.
