Dustin Lynch Sends The Crowd Into "Party Mode"

Dustin Lynch had everyone at this year's iHeartCountry Festival in "Party Mode" throughout his entire performance — he not only brought the tunes, but he brought the drinks too. The star kicked his set off with a beer funnel and Beastie Boys' "Fight For Your Right," followed by "Small Town Boy," "Tequila On A Boat" and "Thinking 'Bout You." Lynch got the crowd involved by handing off a beer helmet to one fan in the front row, and inviting two more fans on stage for some tequila. Dustin finished up with "Party Mode" and some beer pong.
