Dustin Lynch Says Now is Not the Time for a Serious Relationship

It seems people have been Googling Dustin Lynch lately to see if he has a girlfriend, but he laughs and says, “Don’t waste your time.  I’m single.  I don’t have any sort of serious relationship right now.”  Dustin tells The Country Vibe his career is his one and only priority right now.  “I’m just so focused on putting on the best shows I can and singing the best I can every night and I’m just consumed with music right now.  I think that time in my life will come.  It’s not right now.  I’m just too head over heels for music and what I want to accomplish career-wise.”


Dustin says he was in two serious relationships before he really got his career going, so he knows what it takes to make a relationship work and he says,  “I do know that it wouldn’t work right now.”


When the time does come that Dustin’s ready to meet someone special he’s looking for someone with a great sense of humor who has a joy for living life.  “I think any girl that likes to be outside and enjoys the outdoors is a huge turn on,” says Dustin.  “I meet a lot of people that are stuck in the rut of going to work and then going to the bar on the weekend.  There’s so much more to do than that.  So that’s a big turn on, is people who can unplug and get outdoors or whatever it is.  I think any girl that enjoys getting up and getting out is a unique individual.”


For now, Dustin is looking ahead to September 9th, when he’ll release his sophomore album, Where It’s At.

Darius Rucker Narrowing Down Songs for Fourth Studio Album

Darius Rucker has been busy writing songs for his next album and he tells Rolling Stone Country he’s written about 60 songs, which he will eventually narrow down to between 12 and 15 for the new project.  One of the songs he wrote is his new single, “Homegrown Honey,” which he co-wrote with Charles Kelley from Lady Antebellum and Nathan Chapman, and he says, “It’s a little different for me. It’s not one of those family songs — it’s really a country party song.  It’s talking about some country girl who lives in New York City. It’s got hooks galore.”


While some people use a new album as an opportunity to push their boundaries or explore new territory, Darius says, “I can’t go in to record with the attitude that I want to sound different. It’s all about the songs for me. I want great songs. And if we have great songs, then Frank (Rogers, his producer) is the genius and does what he does.”


Darius says he’s already cut six or seven songs for his new album, which doesn’t have a release date as of yet.

Tim McGraw Loosens the Reins on Junk Food During Football Season

It’s no secret that Tim McGraw is a bit of a health nut and a workout machine, but he admits that when football season rolls around he loosens the reins a lot on his diet.   “I’m not very healthy when it comes to football game snacks,” says Tim.  “I like cheese dip and Doritos and tacos and chili, and all that sorta stuff. Some of our favorite things that we have during football season are Frito pies. Most people, I guess, especially if you’re a southerner, are familiar with Frito pies where we just have Fritos, cheese and chili. We eat a lotta that on weekends.”


All that extra junk food doesn’t come without a price for Tim.  He says eating that, “just calls for extra workouts during the week.”  And now that he’s not on tour and working up a sweat on stage he’ll have to work extra hard to make sure those football snacks don’t go to his waistline.

Lee Brice Shares His Thoughts on Love

Lee Brice is featured in the new Redbook magazine talking about love.  Lee says when he’s not on the road he and Sara enjoy having date nights at home.  “I’m on the road a lot, and it makes us appreciate our time together,” says Lee.  “I think a lot of people lose that in everyday life—when you come home from work every day, maybe you take for granted the time you have with your family. We don’t.”


Lee and Sara were in an on-again, off-again relationship for 13 years before they got married and he believes love is a choice.  “You can have a feeling, and then feel like you don’t want to be in that relationship anymore because of some problem. But to love someone means even if your heart is broken, you choose to get through it. You commit.”


Lee didn’t think he was the marrying kind before he and Sara tied the knot because he thought marriage would take away from his freedom, but he says, ”Life is about sharing it.  I wasn’t ready. But then Takoda came along, and Sara and I worked things back out. I didn’t dance before, but I’m telling you, I’m dancing now.”
