Out now, “Huntin’ Land” takes a lighthearted approach to a relationship and finds the country stars admitting that they are in a relationship for the wrong reasons: not for her looks, for love or even for money — it’s all for her daddy’s “Huntin’ Land.”
“A couple thousand acres up in Kentucky/ Little slice of heaven, out in God’s country/ Break her heart, lose the farm/ Ain’t a part of my twelve-point plan/ So I’ma bite the bullet, hold it together/ Try to keep her happy, least till December/ If I ain’t in the stand I’ll be holding her hand/ ‘Cause her daddy’s got hunting land,” the superstars sing on the chorus.
“‘Huntin’ Land’ is one of those fun songs that we can listen to and have a laugh at while hanging with our buddies,” shares Lynch. “I’ve been playing this one out at shows recently, and it’s been cool watching fans react in real time to it. So pumped Riley [Green] was able to hop on it too. Now we need to get a hunt on the books!”
“Huntin’ Land” was produced by Zach Crowell and co-written by Lynch alongside Andy Albert, Hunter Phelps, and Will Weatherly.
The music video finds Green and Lynch spending time in the great outdoors, prepping Lynch’s real-life farm for the upcoming hunting season.
The clip, directed by Matthew Paskert, also features cameo appearances by some of hunting’s most popular faces like the Drury Outdoors crew, Nate Hosie (HeadHunters TV), Phillip Culpepper (Realtree Outdoors), and Michael Waddell (Realtree Outdoors).
The release of “Huntin’ Land” comes as Lynch’s latest single, “Thinking ‘Bout You,” with MacKenzie Porter climbs to the Top 15 at country radio.
The track was originally featured on Lynch’s Tullahoma album with guest vocals from Lauren Alaina. He later re-worked the song with Porter when his team decided to release the song to country radio.
“We just saw how huge the reaction was… so I knew we needed to shine a light on this song,” Lynch recently told Country Now and other media outlets upon the song’s release to country radio.
Since then, it’s gone viral on TikTok and the accompanying music video has amassed nearly 2.5 million views.
