Just announced, Russell Dickerson will be joining platinum-selling, country artist Billy Currington on stage in Moose Jaw on September 14th on his Summer Forever tour.
Sincere, endearing, energetic, and always smiling: All words that have been used to describe emerging country music star, Russell Dickerson, by his fans and peers alike. His infectious personality radiates in everything he does, whether he’s writing a song, singing in the studio, or meeting fans. He’s constantly making people laugh, and makes new friends everywhere he goes. He asserts, “I just love life. Every day is a great day!”
And lately there’s been plenty to smile about. The Nashville native and Belmont University alumnus had quite the surprising summer with the incredible grassroots reaction to his current single, “Yours.” The power ballad was selected for Sirius XM’s The Highway Find program, which showcases new, and often times unsigned, artists to country music fans across the country. In a blink, Dickerson found himself competing with artists such as Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan on the satellite station’s weekly Hot 45 countdown, and successfully reaching #3.
Dickerson quickly released his EP, “Yours,” and debuted at #2 in the iTunes country store and #8 in all genres. The album also premiered at #1 on Billboard’s Heat Seeker chart and #14 on Billboard’s Top Country Album chart. The album features five songs co-written by Dickerson, including a stripped down wedding version of the title track “Yours.” Boosted by the power of his hit single, he recently landed on the iTunes Best of 2015 year-end list, TheKnot.com’s Best Wedding Songs of 2016, and Spotify’s #SpotifySpotlight 2016.
In just a few short weeks, Dickerson’s fans have solidified him unanimously as the next big thing. Over ten million streams on Spotify, one million views on YouTube, and skyrocketing social media followers have come pouring in. He happily keeps up with the messages daily across all his social outlets and reciprocates their dedication by responding to his fans personally.
“Since day one, all I’ve ever known is music. I love touring, I love playing the shows…I love connecting with every single person.” The multi-instrumentalist, and successful songwriter, is busy recording his next project, and is characteristically optimistic that his fans will embrace the album just as much as they have him. “At the end of the day, it’s all about the fans. I want them to leave my shows feeling changed. I live to make them smile.”
Tickets for the September 14th concert start at $49.50 plus taxes and fees and are available online at www.mosaicplace.ca, by phone at (306) 624-2050 or in person at the Mosaic Place Box Office.
