Dustin Lynch Working to Build a Career That Will Keep Him “Around for a Long Time”

Dustin Lynch is putting in the hard work to build a career that lasts for decades. That means he’s going non-stop playing shows on Luke Bryan‘s Kick the Dust Up tour before launching his own headlining tour this November.

Dustin tells Oregon’s Register-Guard, “I don’t want to be a flash in the pan. I want to be somebody who’s around for a long time, like [George] Strait.

Since George was on the road for 30 years before retiring from touring, Dustin wouldn’t be able to even think about parking his tour bus until 2040.

“I can only hope to be around that long,” Dustin says. “I’m sure going to try.”
