Lynch burns it up with "Mama's House"

Wednesday, April 8, 2020

Dustin Lynch released the video today of "Mama's House," his new single.

Shot in Lafayette, Tenn., and directed by Mason Dixon, the transports viewers to a small town where Lynch strikes a match to watch the world burn over a broken heart. Only when he realizes the consequences of his heavy-handed actions - burning down his own "Momma's House" - does he re-think his fiery behavior, opting instead for a whiskey shot and a reflective barstool brood.

Lynch told Entertainment Tonight, "All the love stories that were successful in my life happened in high school in that small town kind of setting," Lynch said. "And that's who you married, and that's who you had a family with, so 'Momma's House' really takes me back to those times. I've been that guy before where I've just wanted to rip everything apart, but you know what I realized...is that lyrics to songs mean a whole lot more once you've been broken up with... All the sudden that John Mayer record means a little something different you know back in the day. That's kinda what I clung onto. But pretty much every song that would come on the radio, it kinda felt different. You know I look at it differently because my world was crushed."

The song is from Lynch's latest disc, "Tullahoma," where every song is personal for Lynch.

He calls "Tullahoma" a concept album. If you're thinking in the vein of "The Wall" or "Tommy," you're in for a disappointment. It's really an exercise in Country 101. He said, "The concept was, 'Let's write songs, let's record songs that the fictional small-town boy ...
CD review - Current Mood Like a lot of 'country' releases these days, Dustin Lynch's "Current Mood" includes a few songs that - if their quality had been duplicated throughout - would have made for one fine album. The ballad, "Love Me or Leave Me Alone," which also features Karen Fairchild (of Little Big Town), is a powerfully memorable song. It's followed by "Back on It" which, with its love/addiction analogy (although already done many times before) is nevertheless ...
CD review - Where It's At Dustin Lynch is a throwback on his sophomore release thanks to the good-looking Tennessee native sporting a straw cowboy hat, Now that's something you don't see these days unless you happen to be King George Strait. Instead, the hat acts of yesteryear - the moniker, in reality, was a dig at those who were part of the same milk toast country sounds that were being put out in the '90s - traded them in for baseball caps. Lynch is yet another in the seemingly endless line these days, ...
