Country music crooner Dustin Lynch has worked at some of the darnedest places doing some of the darnedest jobs in order to earn a living!
From humble yet grounded beginnings in Tullahoma, Tennessee, Lynch had big dreams of country music stardom so he decided to move to Nashville at the age of 18.
During a performance and q&a session inside of the 100.3 KILT Muve Music Lounge Friday, Lynch spoke of how he always wanted a music career and decided to work hard to obtain it. For Lynch, it meant taking less glamorous, less appealing jobs in order to obtain his dream of musical success.
From testing sewage in a lab, to mowing grass and other landscaping duties, Lynch says that despite the grit of the jobs, they helped to build his character and appreciation for hard work and perseverance in the ever-changing country music landscape.
He talked about the hours upon hours he would spend cutting grass and how he then would blow grass all over the front row during a performance, from breathing it in all throughout the day.
Lynch, singer of the hit “Cowboys & Angels”, also told his 100.3 KILT Muve Music Lounge audience that despite the danger and dirt of previous jobs, he values those past professions and says he obtained a taste of real America while performing those down-right and dirty jobs.
