Dustin Lynch Celebrates No. 1 “Mind Reader” With Writers Rhett Akins, Ben Hayslip

Song Is Lynch's Third Chart-Topping Single

A hugging, backslapping crowd surged through the South bar on Nashville’s Music Row Wednesday afternoon (Aug. 24) to applaud Dustin Lynch for his third No. 1 single, “Mind Reader,” written by Rhett Akins and Ben Hayslip.

All three principals were on hand to bask in the congratulations, as well as the song’s producer, Mickey Jack Cones. The party was sponsored jointly by the performance rights organizations, BMI and ASCAP.

South is the same bar in which Lynch got his start, although it was called Two Doors Down back then. And it was where he celebrated his second No. 1, “Hell of a Night,” last October. His first was “Where It’s At (Yep, Yep”).

For Akins and Hayslip, “Mind Reader” was their 23rd and 19th No. 1, respectively.

Akin was twice BMI’s songwriter of the year, as was Hayslip for ASCAP.
