Broken Bow Records’ Dustin Lynch returned to his hometown of Tullahoma, TN over the weekend to headline the annual 41-A Music Festival, which brought in a record number of attendees. Just before his performance, Lynch was presented with the key to the city of Tullahoma. “This is so awesome and unexpected,” Lynch said of the honor. “I haven’t gotten a chance to come back and play in Tullahoma since this whole thing started, even though I still come home every chance I get to see my family and friends. Just getting to play for my hometown was so special to me – this topped off the night. I’m proud of my hometown and this is something I’ll always treasure.”
