Dustin Lynch Covers Kenny Chesney, Beastie Boys and More on Tour [WATCH]
As Dustin Lynch was crossing the country with Chris Lane and Tyler Rich on his Hell of a Night Tour, the singer was spinning his “Wheel of Karaoke” to surprise fans with covers of other songs by famous artists. During a recent tour stop, Lynch wound up singing tunes by everyone from Kenny Chesney to the Beastie Boys.
Lynch, joined onstage by one lucky fan as well as Lane and Rich, kicked things off with Chesney’s single “When the Sun Goes Down,” before breaking into rock territory with versions of the Beasties’ “Fight for Your Right” and Lit’s “My Own Worst Enemy.” Check out video of the unexpected, but fun, performance above.
Lynch’s headlining Hell of a Night Tour wrapped up in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, on Sunday (Feb. 21), but that doesn’t mean that the singer will be taking a break from the road. Starting on Thursday (Feb. 25), he will be joining Luke Bryan and Little Big Town on Bryan’s Kill the Lights Tour, with dates scheduled into May. Lynch previously served as an opener during Bryan’s 2015 Kick the Dust Up Tour, and he says that the country superstar taught him a lot about how to headline his own trek.
“I feel so much more comfortable on stage after watching him so much,” Lynch tells The Boot. “He doesn’t give a crap about what he’s doing; he just shoots from the hip. There’s no rules. He’s so comfortable and such a goofball. It’s kinda like, ‘I don’t have to take myself serious up there. This is great. What’s it matter?’ So that’s allowed me to become comfortable, move around a lot more and have a lot more interaction with the crowd.”
