Dustin Lynch surprised fans with the unexpected release of a new song following his most recent single “I’d Be Jealous Too”. The release of “Good Girl” is not on his Current Mood album and already appears to have had success, as it debuted at Number 37 on the Airplay chart and is still rising.
The country star along with video director Mason Dixon take fans to the Mojave Desert where they deliver the music video for the upbeat single. Country music’s newest bad boy runs from the law with his new love interest as a modern-day Bonnie & Clyde. The video plays out with Lynch and actress Angie Simms running from the police. While at first the couple is portrayed struck in love as they check into a local motel, a news report shows the opposite as they’re wanted for robbing a convenience store. The front desk clerk recognizes the two and the police get involved. Lucky for Lynch, he spots the cops first and they make their escape. Not too long later, they’re at a local diner and while Simms is in the bathroom Lynch gets arrested by the authorities. She manages to get her hands on another set of keys and works to save her man.
“They are rare birds,” Lynch says about the song in a recent interview with Esquire. “We went in and recorded it immediately.” Lynch knew right away he wanted it to be released just in time for summer. He explained it also gave him the opportunity to act for a few hours. “I didn’t have to just sing the song 796 times into the camera,” he says enthusiastically. “It was a new challenge—trying not to look like an idiot when I’m acting in a scene.”
Dustin Lynch will be the newest inductee into the Grand Ole Opry on September 18 after being invited by Trace Adkins earlier in this summer. Lynch is also currently on tour, and this fall he kicks off a tour with Cole Swindell and Lauren Alaina. A full list of dates is available on the Lynch’s website.
