Single Review: Dustin Lynch, "Cowboys and Angels"

July 29, 2012 // 3 Comments

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. Corral a century and a half ago.
