Dustin Lynch trusts a time-honored country instinct on Tullahoma: He named the album after his hometown. The idea is to convey that this record, his fourth, is a bit more of a personal affair for the country singer, which is perhaps a good move because he's seemed a little malleable on his previous albums. He didn't find a comfortable groove until 2017's Current Mood, where he fashioned himself into a considerably friendlier Jason Aldean, an aesthetic that provides a template for Tullahoma. Throughout this short, breezy affair, Lynch glides along country/R&B rhythms that percolate without threatening to break into funkiness. The emphasis is entirely on melody and feel, a combination that's amiable and easy; even on the sad songs (and there aren't too many of those), Lynch seems to be singing with a smile. The unrepentant cheerfulness suits a set of songs so heavily polished they gleam and so anodyne it's hard to tell whether Lynch is singing about his little town, an old country song, or his good girl. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

It's possible to follow the trends in mainstream country music by listening to Dustin Lynch's albums. He started the 2010s attempting to fashion his own spin on Luke Bryan's friendly bro country, slid into the middle of the decade by co-opting a little bit of Jason Aldean's simmering seduction, and approaches its sunset with Current Mood, a record that is firmly aligned with current country trends. Namely, Current Mood is awash in R&B and glossy electronic surfaces, a sound that suggests mainstream pop as much as country. He's not the only purveyor of this sound in 2017 -- Sam Hunt pushed country in this direction, with the likes of Thomas Rhett and Maren Morris following quickly in his footsteps -- but he's someone who has pursued it wholeheartedly, dedicating almost every track on Current Mood to this pop amalgam. Because Where It's At had a fair number of cuts in the vein of Aldean's R&B-friendly "Burnin' It Down," this doesn't feel like a great leap for Lynch and, frankly, it's a better fit for him than the wannabe Bryan era. He not only seems relaxed and confident, but the modern R&B opens the door for the old-fashioned soul slow-burner "Love Me or Leave Me Alone," a duet with Karen Fairchild, to pop. Generally, Lynch is better with the romantic material -- the party songs "I Wish You Were Beer" and, well, "Party Song," veer toward the cornpone, as does "Why Not Tonight," but it's saved via its bizarre Weezer country fusion -- but fortunately the album favors ballads and slow-grooving pop tunes, all of which allows Lynch to display his laid-back charm. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

Country - Released September 9, 2014 | Broken Bow Records

Dustin Lynch follows his 2012 self-titled album debut with a sophomore effort produced by Mickey Jack Cones, Brett Beavers, and Luke Wooten, once again released by Broken Bow Records. Lynch wrote or co-wrote five of the 15 tracks here, infusing things with his traditional country vocals but working as well in a stylish pop direction, adding touches here and there like urban beats, occasional thrash guitar, and even Motown overtones, all while remaining very much country. © Steve Leggett /TiVo

Country music singer and songwriter Dustin Lynch, born and raised in Tullahoma, Tennessee, honed his songwriting skills at Nashville's famous Bluebird Café, where he learned the ins and outs of the trade from some of the town's best writers like Don Schlitz, Tony Arata, and Paul Overstreet, and that skill shows on his self-titled debut album from Broken Bow Records. Lynch wrote or co-wrote ten of the 13 songs on the debut album, which was produced by Brett Beavers and engineered by Luke Wooten, including the album's lead single, "Cowboys and Angels," which Lynch co-wrote with Tim Nichols and Josh Leo. © TiVo
