Dustin Lynch Hosts Multi-Day Pool Situation In Vegas
Broken Bow Records recording artist Dustin Lynch hosted his own “Dustin Lynch Pool Situation: Vegas” last Thursday (June 3) through Sunday (June 6).
The first country music-themed full-weekend pool party of its kind included special guests Jordan Davis, HARDY, and Brandi Cyrus, in addition to surprise appearances by MacKenzie Porter and Conner Smith throughout the Las Vegas strip.
“What a rush! Year 1 of the Pool Situation was certainly a situation – in the best way possible. We live for that connection of all being on the same wavelength to celebrate, forget about the real world, and just live in the moment,” shares Lynch. “Our mission this weekend was to give our fans the best weekend possible, and want to come back and do it again and again. It sure feels like we accomplished that, along with a bunch of ideas to make next year even bigger and better.”
Lynch kicked off the sold-out multi-day event at Drai’s with the “Where It’s At” Welcome Party on Thursday with a supercharged DJ set by Cyrus. Lynch also headlined Friday’s “Cowboys and Angels” Pool Party at Encore Beach Club. Performing for the first time this year with a full band, Lynch played some of his fan favorites, including “Ridin’ Roads,” “Good Girl,” and “Momma’s House,” plus a slew of others since his 2012 breakout.
Blanco Brown To Release First Taste Of New Music Since 2020 Life-Threatening Accident
‘TrailerTrap’ creator and mastermind behind the triple-Platinum sensation “The Git Up,” Blanco Brown will release “Nobody’s More Country” on June 18 via BBR Music Group/Wheelhouse Records. This marks Brown’s first new music since his life-threatening accident in 2020.
Written by Brown, Tyler Hubbard, Jordan Schmidt, and Quintin Amey, the track reaffirms Brown’s country status as he pulls inspiration from his Georgia roots. Throughout the song, Brown also notes that while he appreciates all of the places country music has taken him—“there’s no place like home.”
“I’ve been all around the world and have seen people of all ages, nationalities and backgrounds uniting over their love of country music—the music ties us together,” says Brown. “It’s the sound of home. It’s the sound of my Georgia heart. It’s hard to imagine anybody loving it more than me.”
Fans will get a sneak peek of the song as he performs the new track tonight (June 9) on the RAM Trucks Side Stage at the CMT Music Awards where he is nominated for Group Video of the Year with Parmalee for “Just the Way.”
Midland Lead Singer Mark Wystrach To Appear In New Film The Eyes Of Tammy Faye
Midland lead singer Mark Wystrach appears in the upcoming film The Eyes of Tammy Faye which will be released by Searchlight Pictures on Sept. 17.
Directed by Michael Showalter, the film is an intimate look at the rise, fall and redemption of televangelist Tammy Faye Bakker. In the 1970s and 80s, Tammy Faye and her husband, Jim Bakker, created the world’s largest religious broadcasting network and theme park, and were revered for their message of love, acceptance and prosperity. Bakker was known for her indelible eyelashes, idiosyncratic singing, and eagerness to embrace people from all walks of life. However, financial improprieties, scheming rivals, and scandals toppled their carefully constructed empire.
Wystrach acts alongside Jessica Chastain, Andrew Garfield, Cherry Jones, Fredric Lehne, Louis Cancelmi, Sam Jaeger, Gabriel Olds, and Vincent D’Onofrio.
