When 2012 Downtown Hoedown Artist, Dustin Lynch first came to visit us in Detroit on his radio tour, I just knew he had that something special.  Dustin grew up just south of Nashville, where his parents had bigger dreams for than being the country music singer he wanted to be.  So much so, that Dustin’s parents sent him off to college, which is a good fall-back, in case one doesn’t make it in Music City.  As they say, good talent always rises to the top. Dustin’s eponymous debut album for Broken Bow is full of great, original material from the Tullahoma, Tennessee native.  Take his debut single, “Cowboys & Angels”  for instance (which we were the first station in America to play), his tale of two opposites finding each other went straight to the top, not bad for a debut.  Opposite, is just what we get from Dustin, which showcases the versatility of this new artist on his new album.  Instead of a lush ode to romance, we get a rowdy, rollickin’ rocker full of innuendo.  “She Cranks My Tractor,” as you’ll hear, has little to do with farming.

Take a look at the lyrics, watch the video, then take our survey and weigh in on Dustin Lynch’s sophomore single, “She Cranks My Tractor” in the New Music Spotlight poll below.

She’s a wild rose waiting on me at the end of the road
Between the water tower and the power lines
We’re a cloud of dust once I get her buckled in my pickup truck
She’s ten pounds of sugar in a five pound sack
A Hollywood looker in a John Deere cap

[Chorus]
I go fast, she hollers faster,
She’s the first one up the hayloft ladder
A girl like that’s what a country boy’s after
She cranks, she cranks, she cranks my tractor
She cranks, she cranks, she cranks my tractor

Burning the backroads, sucking jet fuel from the radio
Cows and corn fields flying by
Gate’s locked, hop the fence
Sneak past the barn where the riverbank bends
She’s the best skinny dipper that you’re ever gonna find
She can hit the branch with her bra every time, and

[Repeat Chorus]

She’s ten pounds of sugar in a five pound sack
A long straight away on a quarter mile track
She got a kiss that’ll hit you like a heart attack
I got the rifle she’s got the rack and

[Repeat Chorus two times]

She cranks, she cranks, she cranks my tractor
