Raised in Union City, Tennessee, Russell Dickerson is a singer/songwriter known for his vibrant concerts. Or as he refers to his shows, “The RD Party.”
In 2017, his debut album, Yours, was released and landed at #5 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart and #1 on the Emerging Artists Chart. The album yielded three consecutive #1 songs, including “Yours,” “Blue Tacoma,” and “Every Little Thing.” “Yours” quickly became a favorite at weddings.
Nominations followed at the Academy of Country Music Awards, and CMT Music Awards. Among many highlights in 2020, he received a nod in the category of “Best New Male Artist of the Year” at the ACM.
Russell toured with Thomas Rhett, Florida Georgia Line, Darius Ricker, Lady A, and Kane Brown in addition to playing to sold-out venues as a headliner.
Attracting a fervent following on social media — his followers are fondly referred to as “RD Fam” — Dickerson launched his own YouTube show, “This Is Russ.”
In 2020, he released his sophomore album Southern Symphony — which he referred to as “a bunch of big ole country bangers” — featured the singles “Love You Like I Used To,” “Home Sweet,” and “Never Gets Old.”
“If ‘Yours’ is a wedding song,” he says, “‘Love You Like I Used To’ is your anniversary song.”
Dickerson married his wife, Kailey, in May 2013. On September 10, 2020, they welcomed their first child a son, Remington Edward Dickerson.
