Looks like Kelly Osbourne isn’t just a little bit rock ‘n’ roll, but now it seems she is a little bit country, too. According to Us Weekly, Kelly first met country singer Dustin Lynch at the Stagecoach music festival in Indio, California, where he was performing last week. Sources tell the mag the two hit it off and hooked up. For those of us who aren’t familiar with the up-and-comer, here are 7 things to know about Dustin Lynch.
1. Kelly Osbourne isn’t the only one that thinks he’s hot
According to the country singer’s bio, Dustin was picked for both People Country and Us Weekly’s 2014 Sexist Men of Country.
2. He’s dated another famous beauty before
He was in a yearlong relationship with 2012 Miss Kentucky USA and current Miss Coors Light Amanda Mertz. While he didn’t DTR on social media, Amanda frequently posted photos of the pair on her Instagram. She hasn’t shared a photo of the two in about a year, so it’s safe to say that relationship fizzled out.
3. He’s a fan of tattoos
But he is tattoo-less and plans to remain that way. “I don’t mind. I’m kind of a fan of tattoos, but I’m scared of the lifetime commitment. I feel like I would wake up six months later and want something different.” he told Glamour last year. Perhaps Kelly’s love for tattoos will influence him in the other direction.
4. He never stops working
He’s currently the opening act for Luke Bryan’s Kill the Lights tour, and will be opening for Chris Young in the Fall — all the while touring solo in smaller venues.
5. He has his own clothing line, Stay Country.

6. He’s already made a name for himself on the country scene
Where It’s At debuted at number 1 on the iTunes Country Album charts, and its third single, “Mind Reader,” peaked at No. 67 on Billboard’s Hot 100. It is also currently the fourth-most played country song, according to Billboard.
7. His celebrity crush is Reba McEntire
