Modern day Country artist Dustin Lynch will roll into Stockton headlining his ‘Ride or Die’ Tour on Thursday, Dec. 7 at the Bob Hope Theatre at 6:30 p.m. with special guest Ryan Hurd. His third studio album Current Mood was released in September and the Ride or Die Tour kicked off earlier this month. Before the album was released “Seein’ Red” and “Small Town Boy” were both certified Gold.
“It is amazing to have two songs already Gold before we had released the album … it is a very big confidence booster,” said Lynch. “This body of work is already viewed as a big success for me and my career and my team and we are just looking to build on that now.”
The country star has come a long way from the small town of Tullahoma, Tennessee performing on the Today Show, Lip Sync Battle, Late Night with Seth Meyers, and Jimmy Kimmel Live, to name a few and most recently Lynch was asked to perform at the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade.
He has toured with country superstars including Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, and Brad Paisley and two years ago headlined shows of his own. With the release of “Current Mood” Lynch explained that it was a great reason to get out and tour on his own once again.
Opening for Lynch in Stockton is Ryan Hurd, a country music songwriter and recording artist.
“This is a tour that, I will say this, it is pretty much we have had such a life-changing year that it is kind of our parade lap, our let’s throw some parties at the end of the year and just have some fun,” stated Lynch. “He has had a lot of success as a song writer and he will be out there rocking and rolling. So Ryan’s energy is going to be perfect for that. We are going to throw a big party and hope people show up.”
The new album has 13 songs that Lynch expressed were inspired by things that he has lived through including events that have happened, relationships, and travels.
