About Russell:

Russell Dickerson was born for the stage.  I’m just naturally that kind of dude:  a big, loud  and  over-the-top  guy,  he  says  with  a  laugh.  Yes,  one  of  country  music’s  most talked-about  new  talents and  the  voice  behind  the  smash  single  “Yours,” a  stunning ballad  inspired  by  his  wife  of  four  years,  Kailey,  that’s  racked  up  over  33  million  streams  to  date  on  Spotify,  where  he’s  been  on  the  Hot  Country,  Country  Gold  Playlists  and  more  for  over  a  year,  and  exploded  since  being  serviced  to  country  radio  in  April  — need  not  go  into “entertainer  mode” before  he  catapults  himself  onstage  to  deliver  one  of  his  notoriously  amped-up  live  shows.

Even as a Union City, Tennessee-raised, obsessive teenage music fan, one who’d regularly wait in wraparound lines to see his favorite artists perform in Nashville (“I just got hooked on that energy”) and held up Garth Brooks and Keith Urban DVD’s as his personal Gospel, Dickerson, says being “that dude onstage was always the dream. We would scream every word of every song, and all I could think about was ‘I want to be that guy!’”  Now, thanks to “Yours” and hook-heavy rockers like “Blue Tacoma” and “MGNO,” he’s steadily built a serious fan base of his own.
