Known for his classic country sensibilities, Lynch brings traditional style to the contemporary pop-country music scene in an exciting fusion of old and new. His first major hit, “Cowboys and Angels,” skyrocketed to No. 1 on Billboard’s top country hits in 2012. Shortly after, “She Cranks My Tractor” was ranked in the Country Top 20 Countdown and landed him a spot as the opener for Keith Urban on his “Light the Fuse” tour. In the past three years, Lynch has performed at the CMT Awards, MTV Awards and countless other concerts and benefits alongside some of the best and brightest in country music. His next album, “Where it’s At,” is set to release this fall.
Scott is a young, up-and-coming singer with a gravely baritone who has dreamed of performing on the country stage since he was a young boy. A native of Louisiana, Scott won the annual Colgate County Competition and later released his debut single “Makin’ This Boy Go Crazy.”
The concert is presented by the University Program Council and KX 96.9 with Student Involvement East Campus Programs, College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, ASUN Student Government, Burr-Fedde Association of Resident Members and the Residence Hall Association.
