Just days before the arrival of his long-awaited new album, Tullahoma, Dustin Lynch is celebrating his seventh chart-topping single with “Ridin’ Roads.”
The song, which marks his second No.1 as a songwriter, tops the Billboard Country Airplay chart this week while also spending its second week at the top of the Country Aircheck/Mediabase chart.
“Ridin’ Roads” follows the success of Lynch’s smash hit, “Good Girl,” which made its climb to No.1 in early 2019. Both songs will be included on Tullahoma, which arrives on January 17.
Named after his small Tennessee hometown, the album is the singer/songwriter’s most authentic project to date, thanks to years of soul searching that led Lynch to zero-in on who he is as an artist.
“I think it was just figuring out who I’m not — and what I enjoy doing,” he recently shared with Country Now. “I started realizing what I enjoy the most at my shows, and the songs I look forward to singing the most. That all comes back to, ‘What have I lived,’ right? And, ‘What can I really relate to?’”

Lynch will celebrate the release of Tullahoma with a concert at Marathon Music Works in Nashville on Friday, January 17. Later, he will make his way to ABC’s Good Morning America, where he’s confirmed to perform “Ridin’ Roads” on January 20.
Later this month, Lynch will launch his headlining Stay Country Tour 2020 with special guest Travis Denning.
