Dustin Lynch Shares New Song “Killed The Cowboy”

Dustin Lynch releases new song, “Killed The Cowboy,” out now on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand new track here and learn more.

Platinum-selling country star, Dustin Lynch is readying fans for a new album! The twelve song project is set to embody Lynch both as an artist and as a person. Today, the singer-songwriter shares the title track, “Killed The Cowboy.”

“It was that midnight stare // That look in her eyes like a knife to the heart // It was that poison kiss // Cherry red lips, oh my God, leaning up against the bar // And I know it wasn’t the smoke, it wasn’t the drink // And I’ve got the proof // If you wanna know what killed the cowboy // Ooh (a girl like you)”

The song is the perfect teaser to the full album. According to the singer in a recent press release, “When I’m off the road and working on my farm, I have a lot of inner dialogue. It’s a boxing match inside of me, between living in the moment and enjoying where I am, versus what’s the best version of me five, 10, or 20 years down the road,”Killed The Cowboy is that back-and-forth. […] My hope is that this album finds someone who needs to hear it. I want Killed The Cowboy to embrace the single people of the world and lift them up, to let them know that you don’t have to live a ‘normal’ life to still be happy in your own skin.”

Although Lynch has not yet found his person and that is reflected in the title-track, the song is powerful and relatable. “Killed The Cowboy” showcases the singer at his very best as an artist and as a storyteller. Stay tuned for the album, out September 29th!
