Dustin Lynch’s Take In Today’s Nashville Roundup

Dan + Shay’s Shay Mooney tells The Sioux City Journal that working with Dan Smyers is like a marriage. “We’re very, very different people. Dan is very business-minded and smarter. He’s a lot smarter than I am. We each have the pieces the other one needs in life. It’s like a marriage. It’s all about compromise, being honest and communicating. You learn how to navigate, how not to [tick] one another off.”

Thomas Rhett tells Vice News that he isn’t afraid to dabble outside of country music. “You’re always going to have traditionalists in politics, in religion, and in this case in music, who can’t get past the fact that you don’t have pedal steel and fiddle. Which is fine, but there’s a ton of music you can listen to with that in there. I’m from a playlist generation … I couldn’t tell you the last time I got in the car and listened to just one thing for four hours on a road trip. It’s all over the place.”

Dierks Bentley tells The Guardian that great country songs tell stories. “There should be a whole book written about that one word: country. What does that mean, country? It’s such a huge umbrella. I would hope that what makes it the country is that it all starts with a song. The story is told in three and a half minutes that is not being told on another station. Whether it’s a heartbreak song or a hook-up song or a party song, it’s got some movement through the verses in telling a story.”

Dustin Lynch tells The Morning Call that he doesn’t care whether his songs are considered “country” or not. “Country radio’s expanding. As the years go by, the kind of genres are just all melting into one, and now it’s just good music. And so I don’t really worry myself about that anymore. Of course, you’re gonna have haters – ‘You’re not country anymore, blah, blah, blah.’ But I’m all about putting out music that moves me emotionally and makes me feel something. I don’t care – you can label it whatever you want.”
