Undiscovered: 5 Dustin Lynch Songs We Think You’ll Love

Dustin Lynch has a few number one songs under his belt including “Ridin’ Roads,” “Hell of a Night,” “Mind Reader,” “Small Town Boy,” and a few more. Frankly, the Tullahoma, Tennessee native has a lot to celebrate this year. To celebrate his birthday today, here are 5 songs from Dustin Lynch you may have missed.

1. “Middle of Nowhere”

Written by Lynch, Ashley Gorley, and Zach Crowell who also co-wrote “Cop Car” by Keith Urban, “Middle of Nowhere” depicts the storyline of a man and woman caught in the middle of unknown intentions from each party. Released on the country singer + songwriter’s 2014 album Where It’s At, the song’s lyrical content is messy and combats a complicated relationship leaving Lynch singing, “I don’t know which way you want me to go.”

Lynch told Breedlove, “It’s about being stuck in the friend zone and wondering if you should take a friendship into no man’s land where there’s no return. Once you kiss a friend, you’re not a friend anymore. All of a sudden you are something bigger and hopefully better, but sometimes it ends up crashing and burning pretty hard. So there’s that fear factor.”

2. “I’d Be Jealous Too”

Featured on the Current Mood record, “I’d Be Jealous Too” infuses sounds from pop to country to R&B to concoct a signature contemporary sound exclusive to Lynch. Written by Lynch, Ross Copperman, and Jon Nite, this track is about being in a relationship and having other people notice your significant other.

3. “Last Lap”

“Last Lap” encompasses a hip-hop style. Written with Kelly Archer and Justin Weaver, Lynch expressed that the rhythmic element of the song was difficult to nail. Lynch sings, “Oh oh // Yeah, were kings and queens / Oh oh / Cruising South Jackson Street / Oh oh / Riding up and down that all night merry go round / Oh oh / Just more of the same old same / Oh oh / Making memories with time to waste / Oh oh / And it ran out we took / One last lap around this town.”

4. “Why We Call Each Other”

This track is another hidden gem off of Current Mood. This sensual song was written by Lee Miller and Ross Copperman and discusses the story of a relationship that only ignites after midnight. It’s about those late-night text messages that are sent late at night when you are home and lonely. 

5. “Wild In Your Smile”

Released in 2012 on the star’s self-titled Dustin Lynch album, ‘Wild In Your Smile” found its home with Lynch. Written by Rhett Atkins, Ben Hayslip, and Marv Green, the song organically spawn during a writing session in which the trio was trying to write an up-tempo groove.

He sings, “You look just like a little angel baby // But I know you love a little danger, baby // Everything about you girl is just my style // You got some wild in your smile.”

Happy Birthday Dustin Lynch!
