Dustin Lynch released his brand new single "Good Girl" at midnight on May 5th. A day later, and the country star officially debuted the song live, for the very first time, during his performance at the 2018 iHeartCountry Festival in Austin, Texas.
The Nashville native revealed the new song just before its release via a Twitter video. He said of the new song, "We came across something that I just fell in love with immediately, and we just said, well, why not just go and record the song? And once we did that, I got to thinking, man, I can't live with this song not being heard this summer. So, I called my record label, they were cool with going ahead and letting me record it, and then I asked, man, what if we went ahead and put this out for summer '18. Like, I can't wait all year long to put this out next year, or something. And they were like, 'Well, hell yeah!'"
During his performance at the iHeartCountry Festival, Dustin explained that this was the first time he was performing the song live for fans.
Dustin also performed some fan favorites during the set, including "Seein' Red," "Where It's At," "Small Town Boy," and even covered Flo Rida's hit song "My House."
Also, you've probably never seen these moves from Dustin. You could say he was into it ... or maybe he was just excited about his new single "Good Girl."
Hosted by Bobby Bones and Candace Cameron Bure, this year's iHeartCountry Festival included performances from superstar country artists including Luke Bryan, Keith Urban, Dustin Lynch, Cole Swindell, Maren Morris, Sugarland, Luke Combs, Billy Currington, Dan + Shay, Jon Pardi and Brett Young.
Country fans will be able to relive the best moments from the show during a special TV broadcast on Sunday, August 5th at 8pm ET/PT on FOX. The two-hour show will showcase never-before-seen collaborations, behind-the-scenes interviews with the artists, as well as guest appearances by Gavin DeGraw, Jana Kramer, Sam Palladio, Josh Henderson, Danielle Bradbery, Ryan Hurd and cast members from FOX’s hit drama, THE GIFTED.
