Dustin Lynch Helps Raise More Than $36,000 for Hometown Charities

Dustin Lynch helped raise more than $36,000 for his hometown of Tullahoma, Tenn., during his sixth annual Dustin Lynch & Friends Benefit Concert on Dec. 17. The annual show at Tullahoma High School, which featured performances by Dustin, Hunter Phelps, Jon Nite and Rodney Clawson, will benefit local charities Isaiah 117 House, the Coffee County Children’s Advocacy Center and Toys for Tots.

Dustin will follow-up his 2017 album, Current Mood, with the release of his fourth studio album, Tullahoma, on Jan. 17. The new project takes its name from Dustin’s Tennessee hometown, which is about 80 miles southeast of Nashville.

“It’s all about me and growing up in my hometown,” says Dustin. “Every song on this album points to something that happened to me or my close friends and family, and that’s really cool. I’m very proud of where I’m from, and proud of this record because it will hopefully make my hometown a little more famous than it already is.”

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

If you’ve been to lower Broadway in Nashville over the last several years, you know country music artist owned honkytonks having been sprouting up all along Music City’s famous strip.

Jason Aldean, John Rich, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Alan Jackson all already have venues…but now there’s another name being thrown in the mix, and it’s a first!

Miranda Lambert will be the first female country artist to have a downtown venue. Miranda’s place will be located at 308 Broadway, and looks to be named “Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa.”

Miranda was perhaps encouraged to move into this new venture by a 2018 Nashville Business Journal poll. When music industry pros were asked, “Which female country star should open a downtown bar?” — Miranda garnered the most votes.

Miranda is partnering with TC Restaurant Group on the new place, and it looks like even more details will be revealed in the coming weeks.
