November 9, 2021

DURANT, Okla., (November 9, 2021) – The countdown to 2022 officially begins, as Choctaw Casino & Resort – Durant is announcing the New Year’s weekend performers! Taking the stage at the Grand Theater, chart-topping Country star Dustin Lynch on Friday, Dec. 31 and rock band Halestorm on Saturday, Jan. 1, 2022.

Dustin Lynch has built one of the most consistent recording careers in modern country music, achieving seven No.1 hits, four top five albums, eight gold and platinum certified singles and tallying over 2.6 billion on-demand streams.

His power duet “Thinking ‘Bout You” featuring MacKenzie Porter is nearing top five at country radio, as his fourth studio album, TULLAHOMA, has delivered consecutive chart-toppers: platinum “Ridin’ Roads” and gold “Good Girl” – both co-written by Lynch, in addition to top five hit “Momma’s House.” Continuing to drop some of the genre’s hottest collaborations, he’s also released “Huntin’ Land” featuring Riley Green and “Tequila On A Boat” featuring Chris Lane, plus Country classics “Not Every Cowboy” and “Pasadena,” with more music on the way.

Since his platinum breakout “Cowboys and Angels” in 2012, Lynch’s headlined packed venues and toured with Country’s biggest names like Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Brad Paisley. Likewise, the Tennessee native has earned industry recognition as a Grand Ole Opry member, as well as high-profile nominations for the Billboard Music Awards, iHeartRadio Music Awards, and CMT Music Awards.
