Dustin Lynch: ‘This is a dream come true’

Dustin Lynch still can’t believe he’s a country music star and taking over the country music charts. 

"This is a dream come true," the small town singer from Tullahoma, Tennessee, told Fox News. "Actually a lot of dreams come true mixed all into one. It's something I've always wanted to do, I think ever since I discovered Garth Brooks when I was 4-years-old I wanted to pick up a guitar and sing songs to my parents, all that good stuff. What a blessing we count our blessings every day that we get to do what we love." 

KNOXVILLE, why not tonight!? Let's gooooooooo #DigYourRootsTour #SmallTownBoy

Lynch just joined Florida Georgia Line on their sold-out tour and will hit the road again with Brad Paisley. And he told us he loves nothing more than being on the road.

"Tour life is very busy, it's exciting; I love it," he said. "Being that I am single and don't have any kids waiting at the house for me, I think it really allows me to enjoy a lot more of touring than those who know they are missing out on some things at the house...I'm made a lot of great friends all over the world because of this and that is what I find exciting about touring. On top of doing the amazing music stuff it's just all the walks of life I get to meet." 

Despite touring with some of the biggest names in country music, the singer has learned the importance of staying focused on his dreams.

"I take away if you work hard, if you dream big, if you stay focused there is a longevity to this. And I've learned a lot as far as onstage goes and offstage. These guys are doing it at the biggest level you can... It's great to be around that energy and they are still figuring it out as they go and growing and my goal is to be at their level one day so I'm just soaking it all in and hopefully one day I can put what I learned to use."

Besides making music, touring and writing the 31-year-old has a clothing line, Stay Country. 

"Designing clothes is like writing songs. It's one of those things you just have to invent out of thin air and it's a new challenge and having success in the song-writing world and I'm finding out in the fashion world is all about repetition, practice and surrounding yourself with great people and I think I've done that with the Stay Country line."
