One of our day one favorite artists continues to hit milestones in his career. With four number one singles at country radio already to his name, Russell Dickerson adds his fifth number one with “God Gave Me A Girl” securing the top spot on the charts this week.

The single is a beautiful and romantic song off of his self-titled album. “God Gave Me A Girl” speaks to Dickerson’s marriage to his wife Kailey Dickerson. The twosome are one of country music’s favorite couples. Dickerson clearly shows time and time again that he knows how to craft a relatable love song, and “God Gave Me A Girl” is more proof of that.

“God gave me a girl // Girl gave me a kiss // Kiss gave me a feelin’ that I still get // Every time I look in her eyes // I don’t deserve her and I don’t know why // She gave me her hand // I gave her a ring // Then as soon as I could // I gave her my last name // Now I’m gonna give her forever // I knew what I wanted but // He knew better // God gave me a girl, mm”

Russell Dickerson: ‘Three Months Two Streets Down’ EP Review

Russell Dickerson shares brand new EP, Three Months Two Streets Down, out now, June 27th on all streaming platforms.  Listen to the new EP now.

Russell Dickerson can truly do no wrong! Every song he touches is a certified hit. In his brand new summer-ready EP, Three Months Two Streets Down, Dickerson proves his staying power with just five incredible songs.

The project kicks off with “Ride The Wave.” An absolute slow-jam, Dickerson’s vocals are on full display on this catchy tune. The track has summertime romance written all over it. Even though summer loves do not alway last, Dickerson emotes how it feels to just go with the flow, despite the impending outcome.

Next up, “Down on the Beach,” is the perfect summer-bop. Seemingly inspired by his beach days with his beautiful wife, the song has all the summer staples. This song is made to blast, while chilling on the beach with your loved ones or spending the day out on the water. Dickerson is coming for that king of summer with this jam.

Similar to the vibe of the opening track, “Steal My Summer” is a love song about a budding relationship. Dickerson is a pro at creating romantic songs that make us all believe in love. While “Steal My Summer” is still about that summer fling, it still has that same honesty and desirability as old-school RD tracks like “Yours.”

“Beauty and the Beach” feels like a fun pop-country riff off Justin Bieber’s popular song, “Beauty And A Beat,” in the best way. While clearly, all about love and summertime like the rest of the EP, “Beauty and the Beach” is the clear anthem on the project. The song would make the perfect addition to Dickerson’s live set.

Much like “Ride The Wave,” the final track, “SMR LV” bookends the project with nostalgia and love. “SMR LV,” aka summer love feels like the culmination of the love story expressed in “Ride The Wave.” While the song has a tinge of sadness for the ending of the season, it feels like the perfect conclusion for the stellar project.

Although just five songs, Three Months Two Streets Down will get you excited for more Russell Dickerson music to come! The record highlights all the things we have grown to love about RD and his undeniable talent, charm, and charisma.

Three Months Two Streets Down EP Track List:

  1. Ride The Wave
  2. Down on the Beach
  3. Steal My Summer
  4. Beauty and the Beach

Two Friends Collab with Russell Dickerson on New Song “More Than Yesterday”

Two Friends collaborate with Russell Dickerson on new song “More Than Yesterday,” out now, May 10th, on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand new track below.

There are few things we love more than a cross-genre collaboration. Lately, EDM music has had its moment with the country music genre. Today, DJ duo, Two Friends collaborate with one of our favorites, Russell Dickerson. Their new song, “More Than Yesterday” is out now.

The collaboration highlights both artists effortlessly. While the song is a beautiful love song, all about loving your partner deeper each day (right up Dickerson’s alley), the track builds into a crescendo before the beat drops, perfectly embodying Two Friends and their talent.

“Hold your breath // darling swim to shore // I’ll tread the water in the heart of yours // and when it storms we’ll sail right through the waves // I’ll love you more than yesterday”

“More Than Yesterday” is a song that proves that cross-genre collaborations are the wave of the future. Fans will appreciate the lyrical prowess on the new track, as well as, the dance-ready beat that is hard not to fall in love with. While Two Friends and Dickerson might have been an unexpected pairing, it definitely works!

Russell Dickerson – Album Review

Russell Dickerson’s new self-titled album is out now, November 4th on all streaming platforms. Take a listen and read our full review below.

Since the 2017 release of his wedding-ready single “Yours,” Russell Dickerson has been one of country music’s most buzzed-about new stars. Today, the singer-songwriter releases his third full-length album, a self-titled collection of radio-ready jams and romantic ballads that further cement his status as one of the genre’s future superstars.

Known for his electric and energetic live shows, the Triple Tigers Recording artist continues to reveal his talents on his self-titled album. “No matter how far we get into this, I want people to know it’s still me,”  Dickerson says in a statement. “I’m still the hyper, outgoing, fun-loving, crazy dude on stage. But also these songs are so meaningful to me. It’s not all hype and smoke and lights. I am a songwriter, I trust my instincts, and now my instincts are telling me to share 100 percent me, and creatively just let it flow.”

In his dedication to staying true to himself, the Tennessee native co-penned and co-produced each of the album’s fifteen tracks, enlisting a slew of Nashville heavy-hitters, including Josh Kerr, Ashley Gorley, Lori McKenna, Parker Welling, and Zach Crowell to join him.

On the project, Dickerson weaves his way through a well-crafted mix of romantic tracks, odes to nostalgia, and a few tried and true party anthems. He dabbles with hints of different genres, but stays true to the country-pop sounds that have endeared him to a legion of fans. Although he can do it all, the effusive talent shines especially bright on the driving and anthemic country-heavy mid-tempos that pepper the album. Songs like “I Wonder,” “God Gave Me a Girl,” and “Blame It On Being Young” are immediate standouts, each allowing him to stretch his vocal chops over building tracks that are stadium-show-ready.

On “God Gave Me a Girl,” his lyrics are at the forefront, cleverly building the phrases atop each other, proclaiming, “God gave me a girl // Girl gave me a kiss // Kiss gave me a feeling that I still get // Every time I look in her eyes…God gave me a girl // At just the right time // And I gave her the world // But she changed mine.”

While “God Gave Me a Girl,” is about true love found, both “I Remember” and “I Wonder” have him pondering the what-ifs of a lost love. On “I Wonder,” he ponders if he’ll regret losing someone forever, while “I Remember” has him nostalgic for young love and college days, forever treasuring the moments of being “young, dumb, wild, and free.”

Nostalgia is a theme that weaves its way through the album, celebrating the good ol’ days on “Blame It On Being Young,” “Drink to This,” “All the Same Friends,” “Beers to the Summer,” and “18.” While “Beers to the Summer” has hints of early Kenny Chesney, “18” is tinged with 80’s pop that has Dickerson longing to have known his wife as a teenager, musing that “I could’ve been your perfect // Perfect first kiss // Wishing that I could’ve kept you out all night // The problem with forever is it ain’t long enough // I wish that I could go back and we’d fall in love // Back when we were 18.”

On “I Still Believe,” Dickerson is a dreamer with small-town country values, as he proclaims his beliefs on the building anthem.

“The best beer is cold // The best friends are old // The best songs go ‘oh-oh-oh’ //  The best girl is mine // The best night’s tonight // With that sky dripping gold // There’s more good than bad // And rich don’t mean cash // Yeah I still believe// I believe, I believe in that.”

Dickerson’s love for his wife is another prevalent theme throughout his album, his romantic side is on display on songs like “Sorry,” “Over and Over,” “She Likes It” with Jake Scott, and “She’s Why.” While “Sorry” is a tongue-in-cheek uptempo that finds the star unable to keep his hands off the woman he loves, “She Likes It” is an R&B-tinted reminder that the attraction goes both ways.

The album ends with the sparse and incredibly moving “Just Like Your Mama,” a song dedicated to Dickerson’s young son, Remington, which even features a special appearance by the adorable toddler. “Just like your mama // No bull and no drama // You’ll know who you are // And you’ll know who you aint,” He sings of the boy who takes after his self-proclaimed better half. You’ll stand on what you believe // Golden heart on your sleeve // You won’t let this world take your shine away // In the mirror, might look just like me // Baby boy, I can already see // You’re better than my wildest dreams, just like your mama.”

On his self-titled album, Russell Dickerson continues to shine as one of Nashville’s most talented singer-songwriters, stretching himself lyrically, musically, and vocally, while remaining abundantly true to himself.

Russell Dickerson Drops Brand New Song + Announces Self-Titled Album

Russell Dickerson drops a brand new song, “I Wonder,” ahead of his self-titled album, dropping November 4th. Listen to the new track here.

Today is a good day for country music! Russell Dickerson surprises with a brand new track and also revealed plans for album number three. Slated for a November 4th release, the self-titled album is set to have 15 tracks, including Dickerson’s current single “She Likes It” ft. Jake Scott. Today, we get a taste of the project with his new song, “I Wonder.”

Although we are used to Dickerson giving us catchy love songs to swoon after, “I Wonder” is a different type of song – but still just as captivating. The track encompasses remorse and introspection post-break-up. With “I Wonder,” the singer-songwriter proves that he can convey any emotion through his lyrics.

“I said goodbye // I drove away // Said I ain’t the one, lied to your face // About half a mile, all gas, no breaks // Thought I was right // My mind was made // Then I see your lipstick on a Starbucks cup // Got me thinking I might of messed up // Can I live and never kiss those lips again // And I wonder”

As we anxiously anticipate album number 3, “I Wonder” is a must-add to your music catalog. It is also the perfect addition to his live shows. Dickerson is one step closer to that coveted Entertainer of the Year that we know he will take home one day.

Thomas Rhett Adds Tyler Hubbard & Russell Dickerson on New Song

Thomas Rhett’s new song “Death Row” featuring Tyler Hubbard and Russell Dickerson is out now, March 4th. Listen to the brand new track below.

For the last couple of months, superstar, Thomas Rhett has been sharing songs off his upcoming record, Where We Started (due out April 1st). As usual, Rhett runs the emotional gamut, giving fans songs to drink to, songs to cry to, and songs that make you think. His brand new song, “Death Row”, out today, hits the emotional trigger.

The brand new track features longtime friends, Tyler Hubbard and Russell Dickerson. Written by Rhett with prolific songwriters, Zach Crowell and Ashley Gorley, “Death Row” is a pensive, thought-provoking track. Each singer, Rhett, Hubbard, and Dickerson each take a verse to share stories and experiences that they seemingly learned from inmates doing time in prison. Rhett shared in a recent interview that the new song was inspired by a real-life experience for the trio.

“Just last week, I went to prison // To see some boys down on death row // I brought some guitars and my buddies // To play some songs we thought they’d know // I could feel myself trembling // When I shook one of their hands // I thought that he would be a monster // Turns out he’s a whole lot like I am”

The emotional encounter clearly took a toll on Rhett and his fellow collaborators. The singer-songwriter has a knack for sharing stories, and “Death Row” exemplifies that. Hubbard and Dickerson add additional elements to the already incredible collab. So far, Where We Started is shaping up to be a phenomenal project from Rhett.
