Tuesday, June 30, NYCountry Swag launched our ‘I Love New York’ Series which features artists in the country music community taking over our Instagram Story each week to give us the Top 5 Things they love most about New York City.
Kicking off the series was singer-songwriter, Russell Dickerson, who just released the latest song, “Home Sweet” off his upcoming sophomore album. Check out Dickerson’s Top 5 Picks in the personalized videos here on Instagram Highlights plus a rundown below.
#5 – Family
Dickerson says, “My favorite part about New York is my family. I’ve got family in Long Island and since I was a kid growing up we would always come to New York for the summers and hang out with them…”
#4 – Truffle Gnocchi from Medi Wine Bar
A foodie at heart, Dickerson shouts our New York City’s Medi Wine Bar and his favorite dish, Truffle Gnocchi.

“If we’re in NYC, you know we’re going to be at Parker & Quinn…” Dickerson says of his #3 pick, “The place is absolutely incredible and one of our favorite restaurants in N-Y-C.”
#2 – Madison Square Garden
The World’s Most Famous Arena, Madison Square Garden, takes Dickerson’s #2 spot. “We sold it out with Thomas Rhett on the Very Hot Summer Tour… absolute best night of my career,” Dickerson says of the fond memories inside the famed venue.
