With a deep, rich voice like Dustin Lynch's you'd think he'd be a shoe in for high school chorus right? Not so much, his choir teacher wasn't a fan at all.
"I got a C in Vocal Music in high school and wasn't really allowed to try out for the chorus, the whole chorus thing. You know, and talk about being told 'no' right there and wanting to prove somebody wrong" Dustin says.
Dustin came into his own vocally while in college, but he didn't develop his talent through formal voice lessons. He got his education singing in honky tonks in downtown Nashville at night while hitting the books by day.
"My voice dropped kind of early in life, and I've always kind of had a deep voice," Dustin explains, "but I've learned to sing country music just from my heroes and trying to entertain a crowd on Broadway."
Dustin's debut single "Cowboys and Angels" is everywhere on Country radio. Find him on tour at DustinLynchMusic.com.
Glad he didn't stop believing in himself, he is such a talent!
