The pre-Christmas benefit concert featured Paul Overstreet, Wendell Mobley, Justin Ebach and Lauren Alaina
In the spirit of the giving season, Grand Ole Opry member Dustin Lynch returned to his hometown of Tullahoma, TN, for his fifth annual Dustin Lynch & Friends Benefit Concert earlier this month, raising $25,000 for local children’s charities.
Over the last five years, Lynch has raised nearly $100,000 for the cause, maintaining his commitment to the town that built him. “I’ve been given such a great platform; I’ve been blessed to be able to chase my dreams, and that comes from having a great foundation at home,” states Lynch in a recent interview with The Tullahoma News. “They ask me every year if I want to keep doing this, and the answer is absolutely. We’re going to keep doing this as long as you’ll have us.”
This year’s performers included Paul Overstreet, Wendell Mobley, Justin Ebach and Lynch’s Reason To Drink… Another Tour alumni Lauren Alaina. Their tour, alongside Cole Swindell, wrapped last week in New Orleans, LA, after entertaining thousands at packed out arenas in 23 cities nationwide.
Meanwhile, Lynch’s current single “Good Girl” is Top 5 and climbing at Country radio, kick-starting what is sure to be a massive 2019. Lynch will hit the road as support on Thomas Rhett’s North American Very Hot Summer Tour starting April 2019.
