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.

Russell Dickerson and Lady A Collaborate on “Home Sweet”

Russell Dickerson and Lady A’s collaborative new version of “Home Sweet” is out today, November 19th, on all streaming platforms. Learn more about the brand new track below.

Lady A joined Russell Dickerson on a new collaborative version of the artist’s hit song “Home Sweet”. A tune we already know and love is made even better with the incredible vocals and harmonies from the group. 

Dickerson’s original “Home Sweet” serves as the current radio single from his latest album Southern Symphony. It is a love song to his wife about the perhaps abnormal lifestyle that they live given his career. It centers on the idea that no matter where they are – whether it is in their home, some run-down hotel room, or their tour bus – when they’re together, they’re home. A sentiment that Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley, and Dave Haywood also know all too well. For each of them, and for so many people that can relate, sometimes home just means being with your person or your family, and not a specific address.

You feel that authenticity and relatability out of each of them in this new collaboration of “Home Sweet”.

“No, there ain’t nothing like // Home sweet, you and me // Ain’t got much but we got all we need // Wherever the wind blows // Wherever this life goes // Baby, all I know, ain’t nothing like // Home sweet // You and me”

These artists have been keeping busy and are looking forward to even more exciting times in 2022. Dickerson released a new song last week with Jake Scott called “She Likes It”. The release was followed shortly by another announcement earlier this week of his 2022 All Yours, All Night Tour. The tour kicks off in NYC on January 25th at Irving Plaza. 

Lady A, having just come off their tour, released their new album last month What A Song Can Do.

Russell Dickerson Collaborates with Jake Scott on “She Likes It”

Russell Dickerson collaborates with Jake Scott on new song, “She Likes It,” out today, November 5th, on all streaming platforms. Learn more about the brand new track below.

One of our favorites and day ones, Russell Dickerson is always showing off his skills on social media. Just last month, the singer-songwriter premiered a chorus he had written on TikTok, asking someone else to write a verse to it. Jake Scott obliged and an incredible collaboration was born between the two rising stars. Today, Dickerson and Scott released their new song “She Likes It.”

The pop-country tune is the perfect blend of both artists’ sounds. “She Likes It” fits in with each entertainer’s catalog of music. The song kicks off with Dickerson singing a verse that appears to be inspired by his real life romance with his wife and muse, Kailey. However, the second verse is all Scott! The two singers harmonize and sing the rest of the song together, showcasing both of their star-studded talents equally.

“She likes it when I // Pour tequila cause she knows that we about to have ourselves a little night // When I play John Denver through that little Bose speaker // And I start dimming those lights // She knows by the way that I’m kissin’ on her / That we gon’ take our time // She likes it when I”

Dickerson is an artist that could truly collaborate with anyone. As a fan of his and Jake Scott, this collab is one we will certainly have one repeat.

Country Stars Cover Songs off Justin Bieber’s ‘Justice’ Album and More

Justin Bieber is one of the most successful superstars of our generation. Despite his pop sound, Bieber has appealed to the masses and has fans from every genre, including country music. In celebration of his latest hit record, Justice, we’re taking a look at some of the country artists who have shared their own versions of Justin Bieber’s music.

 

  1. “Off My Face”- CB30

One of our favorite brother-duo groups, CB30 showed off their insane talent and harmonies, covering Bieber’s song “Off My Face” off the brand new record Justice. Fans are already insisting that the singers release their version of the song to streaming services ASAP. For now, fans can listen below on their Instagram.

 

  1. “One Less Lonely Girl”- Russell Dickerson

We are still in love with this old-school cover of “One Less Lonely Girl” by Dickerson. This 2011 cover is still just as amazing as it was back then. The song is one of the few songs that put Bieber on the map, and it’s exciting to look back at it through Dickerson’s (a virtually unknown artist at the time) eyes. Check it out below!

 

  1. “Intentions” – Temecula Road

The harmonious and talented trio, Temecula Road covered Bieber’s song “Intentions” last year. It is safe to say that they absolutely slay the cover, showing off their country roots, on an otherwise pop-infused jam.

 

  1. “HOLY”- Alana Springsteen

One of our newest favorite songstresses, Alana Springsteen is an absolute Queen when it comes to covers! She has covered songs from artists like Taylor Swift, Dan + Shay, and of course, Justin Bieber. Her cover of “HOLY” is so smooth and soothing, and we cannot get enough of it! Check it out below. While you’re at it, make sure to download her new song “Trying Not To” with Roman Alexander.

 

  1. “Love Yourself”- Kane Brown

Before he was a superstar and selling out arenas, Brown was just a kid trying to make it in country music. In 2016, he performed “Love Yourself” in a live studio radio performance, and doubters were stopped in their steps. His version still gives us chills. Watch the clip below!

 

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. Learn more here.

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.

Russell Dickerson Continues to Break Records with “Love You Like I Used To”

Russell Dickerson continues to break records with his hit song, “Love You Like I Used To,” as it is currently tied as the longest-running top ten single in radio history.

One of our all-time favorite artists, future entertainer of the year, and our actual “day one,” Russell Dickerson, continues to shatter the glass ceiling in his career. Back in November, we shared the news that Dickerson’s song “Love You Like I Used To” marked his fourth consecutive #1 single. Now, we can rejoice again as that same song has officially tied “Amazed” by Lonestar as the longest-running top ten single in radio history! Dickerson took to Instagram to reveal the exciting news and shared a mash-up of the two record-breaking songs.

In just a few short years, Dickerson has accomplished a monumental feat. His first four songs to country radio reached the top spot on the charts, and his latest single, “Home Sweet” just broke the Top 50, impacting country radio just in January! Dickerson trails only Luke Combs’ with consecutive hits right from their debut. Furthermore, if “Love You Like I Used To” stays in the top ten, it will officially stand on its own as the longest-running top ten single in history.

With only two albums under his belt, Dickerson is truly just at the beginning of his long and promising career in country music. He continues to be one of the most talented and humble singer-songwriters in the genre, and it is only a matter of time until he is surely a household name.

We cannot wait to continue to root for more success for the singer-songwriter and predict that one day he will be accepting an honor as Entertainer of the Year.

Congratulations to Russell and his team on this awesome accomplishment!

If You Like Justin Bieber Then You’ll Love…

If you like Justin Bieber then you’ll love country artists, Sam Hunt, Russell Dickerson, and Kane Brown. Learn why, here!

We believe that everyone is a country music fan, they just might not know it yet! Unless you live under a rock, you are most likely a Justin Bieber fan.  With his killer voice, catchy tunes, and staying power in the mainstream music scene, everyone is a Bieber fan. If you love Bieber then you should definitely check out the country artists below too!

 

Sam Hunt:

Grammy-nominated recording artist, Sam Hunt is one of the most eclectic singer-songwriters in the country music genre. He infuses hip-hop, rhythms, and pop into his music, while still remaining true to story-telling lyrics. Like Bieber, Hunt’s phrasing is unique and catchy. Both artists deliver comparable sounds that are still distinctly their own.

To keep up with Sam Hunt, follow him on InstagramTwitter, and Facebook.

 

Russell Dickerson:

It is no secret that Russell is one of our all-time favorites, but that’s not why he makes the list. Dickerson is a future Entertainer of the Year, putting on an incredible live show, like Bieber. His pop-country sound, and his ability to sing pretty much everything, makes Dickerson easy to love cross-genre.

To keep up with Russell Dickerson follow him on InstagramTwitter, and Facebook.

 

Kane Brown:

Bonafide superstar, Kane Brown also transcends the country music genre. Like Bieber, he has a diehard fanbase and loves to collaborate with artists in different genres. Brown’s songs “Cool Again” and “One Thing Right” are sonically-pleasing, just like Bieber’s tunes. On the other hand, Brown’s honesty in “For My Daughter” matches Bieber’s vulnerability in songs like “Lonely” and “Anyone.”

[Watch] Russell Dickerson Surprises Superfan With a Special Gift

Watch the heart touching video of Russell Dickerson surprising 17-year-old Sarah Frei with a very special gift.

Russell Dickerson Surprises Fan

This summer, one of Russell Dickerson’s biggest fans, 17-year-old, Sarah Frei was in a car with friends when they were hit head-on by a drunk driver. Unfortunately, Frei suffered major injuries becoming paralyzed from the waist down and becoming a double amputee. The accident however did not change her positive outlook and incredible spirit.

Her high school cheerleading team put together a dance routine to Dickerson’s “Home Sweet” which caught the singer-songwriter’s attention when it was posted on Instagram.

Dickerson continued to keep Sarah in his thoughts and teamed up with Chevrolet to surprise Sarah with a 2021 Chevrolet Traverse that has been outfitted for her specific needs by BraunAbilty.  Russell surprised Sarah during a video call earlier this week, and her reaction is what we all need to see at the end of this year.

Be sure to share this moment to spread joy during this holiday season.
