Single Review: Dustin Lynch, "Cowboys and Angels"

If this was released twenty years ago, it wouldn’t catch much attention amidst the wave of hat acts attempting to break through.

Released in today’s climate, Dustin Lynch’s “Cowboys and Angels” sounds almost revolutionary in its retro feel.   It certainly doesn’t sound like anything else on country radio today.  Between Lynch’s baritone vocals and the High Noon production, it’s a somewhat theatrical record, like something you’d expect to hear at the O.K.

There’s nothing terribly interesting about the story line itself, buy cipro but Lynch is a good enough storyteller to keep you interested.  Give him stronger material, and he could be one to watch.

Written by Josh Leo, Dustin Lynch, and Tim Nichols
