Russell Dickerson’s “Home Sweet” Gets New Meaning with St. Jude Collab
Russell Dickerson’s latest single “Home Sweet” finds new meaning as the song becomes the perfect soundtrack for St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway.
There’s a reason we always say Russell Dickerson deserves all the success in the world! Besides being an incredible singer-songwriter and future entertainer of the year, (just wait), he is a gracious and humble man. Becoming a father this past year has only increased his love and appreciation for family.
As a longtime friend and supporter of St Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Dickerson collaborated with the organization, lending support from his current single “Home Sweet” to “The St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway”, which rallies the community to support St. Jude with a chance to win your dream house by purchasing a giveaway ticket.

Much like St. Jude and the way they do their best to make patients and their families feel at home, Dickerson believes that home isn’t a specific point on the map, but is made with the people you are surrounded by. “Wherever the wind blows, wherever this life goes,” Dickerson sings on the chorus in “Home Sweet”, the second single off of his sophomore album, Southern Symphony.
On a recent virtual meet and greet, Dickerson shared laughs and conversation with St. Jude patient, Ian, and his Mom, Anna about fun, games, sports, and of course Ian’s go-to food; mac and cheese. The simplicity and the kindness of the meeting is one that showcases Dickerson’s core personality in the best light.
For someone like Ian, who has spent many months living at St Jude, his home away from home, the message of “Home Sweet” is evident. St Jude makes their hospital feel like an inviting and fun place to live for a while, rather than feel like a hospital. Even Dickerson admitted that his past experiences playing music and hanging with the kids at the research hospital were a joyful experience.
This year, St. Jude introduced the “We Won’t Stop” t-shirt project. For a monthly donation of just $19, you can get the exclusive tee and help support the incredible program. It costs over a million dollars daily to operate St. Jude each and every day. Donations are what keeps them able to help children suffering. To donate and get your own “We Won’t Stop” t-shirt head to www.stjude.org.
