Belonging to a class of country singers who slyly incorporate modern R&B rhythms into their bright, tuneful mainstream country-pop — a class that also features Sam Hunt and Thomas Rhett — Russell Dickerson first started to gain traction in late 2015 with the single “Yours.” As a native of Nashville, Dickerson grew up in the thick of Music City and by the time he hit college, he knew he wanted to pursue music professionally.
He completed a degree in music at Belmont University and in 2010 scored representation with Creative Artists Agency, who helped him land a publishing deal in addition to repping him as a performer. Dickerson’s first attempt at a solo career — 2011’s “That’s My Girl” — didn’t go anywhere, but in 2013 “Green Light” became a hit on satellite radio. Over the next couple of years, Dickerson’s music became poppier, a makeover that paid off once “Yours” became a country radio hit in late 2015, leading to the release of the Yours EP in 2016.
Russell Dickerson is available for corporate events, private shows, milestone celebrations (birthday, anniversary), fundraisers, festivals, and more.
