"Good Girl" is a song recorded by American country music singer Dustin Lynch. It is the lead single from his fourth studio album Tullahoma. Lynch wrote the song with Justin Ebach and Andy Albert, and Zach Crowell produced it.

History[edit]

Lynch released the single in mid-2018 following the poor chart performance of his previous single "I'd Be Jealous Too". He said in a video posted to Instagram that he asked label executives for permission to release the single in order for it to be successful in the summertime, and they approved of the choice.[1]

Rolling Stone described the song as "continues Lynch’s flirtation with R&B vibes but trades the EDM beats of ['I'd Be Jealous Too'] for a laid-back tune about having found the right kind of love, one with the potential to last beyond the upcoming summer season."[2] The Boot wrote that the song "is an ode to Lynch's love" and "Throughout the summery, upbeat track, Lynch explains just how perfect she is, and how she's changed his world for the better."[1]

Commercial performance[edit]

The song peaked at number one on Country Airplay for chart dated January 19, 2019, which is Lynch's sixth number one on the chart, and his first as a writer.[3] It has sold 83,000 copies in the United States as of January 2019.[4]

Music video[edit]

The song has a music video directed by Mason Dixon, which features Lynch and actress Angie Simms (sister of "The Voice" season 2 runner-up Juliet Simms) portraying a storyline inspired by Bonnie and Clyde. It was filmed in Palmdale, CA. [5] He debuted the video on the website of Esquire magazine in September 2018.[6]
