Making Memories: Dustin Lynch Open For His Idol

If you were a big-time country star with two albums and four No. 1 singles under your belt, it might be hard to believe life could get any better – unless, of course, you were Dustin Lynch.

The guy with country music's brightest smile fulfilled a dream when he opened for none other than Garth Brooks in Philadelphia a few weeks ago! His excitement – not to mention the crowd's – is pretty obvious judging from his Instagram.
