Dustin Lynch Calls Reba His “Life-Long Crush”

Singer Has Elaborate List of Dream Collaborations

In a new interview with TooFab.com, Dustin Lynch talked about his list — his very long list — of the artists who influenced him and the artists he’d love to duet with some day. There’s obviously a lot of crossover.

Because of course if a singer had a big impact on you growing up, why wouldn’t you want to get into a recording studio with that person?

For Lynch, one of those would be Reba.

“You know, my life-long crush is Reba McEntire, so she’s definitely in there,” he said.

But also, he’d love to sing with all the guys he listened to early on: George Strait, Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson and Alabama.

Oh, and Hootie & the Blowfish.

Oh, and current tourmate Luke Bryan.

Oh, and former tourmate Keith Urban.

Oh, and Bruno Mars and Justin Timberlake.

Even though those last two are far from country, Lynch says they’d be the top two he’d want to work with.

“I’m a huge fan of both of those guys and I always have been with what they’ve done and they actually are a pretty big influence on a new chapter of music I’ve started writing, so it would be neat to have them come in and collaborate,” Lynch said.

Alison makes her living loving country music. She's based in Chicago, but she's always leaving her heart in Nashville.
