“Well, it’s a hell of a pickup line,” Lynch laughed before sharing he has a tough time meeting women due to his hectic schedule and responsibility to maintain a certain image. “There’s definitely an image to… keep up. It’s weird.”

He continued, “I’m jealous of band guys because they get to go out and have fun at bars and out in the crowd after the show if we’re opening for somebody and I’m kind of just stuck.”

While a bummer for his dating life, don’t feel too bad for Lynch, who says he does get the opportunity to cruise around tailgates ahead of his sets at events like Country Thunder.

“The set-ups here are just amazing. Inspiring,” Dustin said, recalling his ride around the campgrounds. “Everybody out here is so friendly. Roll up and they offer you a beer, offer you a spot in whatever drinking game they’re playing and you’re part of the family, it’s cool.”

So what drinking game is he most likely to crash while perusing the tailgates? “I excel at flip cup,” Dustin confessed.
