Dustin Lynch has been honored with several chart-toppers, but on Monday (March 25), he was honored for his first No. 1 hit as a songwriter. Lynch celebrated with his co-writers Justin Ebach and Andy Albert during a party held at Hi-Fi Clyde’s on Church in Nashville.

Lynch’s fellow “Good Girl” co-writer, Albert, was also celebrating his very first No. 1 song as a writer. The party was hosted by ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC.

“We were all just so sure about this song from the beginning. We only had the track down and we knew it was something special,” shared Lynch. “I want to thank these two guys up here (Albert and Ebach) for getting up on day three after a long night on the bus ready to write, because that’s what leads to moments like this.”

Among those celebrating were Curb/Word’s Janine Ebach, ASCAP’s Beth Brinker, BMI’s Mary Ann Keen, SESAC’s Shannan Hatch, BMG’s Jake Gear, BMG’s Kos Weaver, Downtown Music Publishing’s Steve Markland, Warner/Chappell’s Ryan Beuschel, and BBR Music Group’s Jon Loba.

The followup single to “Good Girl,” “Ridin’ Roads,” was named the No. 1 most-added song of the week, with 46 stations already spinning the track.
