Country singer-songwriter Russell Dickerson has released “Home Sweet,” the second preview track off his upcoming sophomore album. The feel-good song details the highs and lows of his longtime romance (with wife Kailey) and how, through it all, it remains a sweet, beautiful refuge.
Penned by Dickerson, Casey James and Lady A’s Charles Kelley, the tune captures the singer’s hell or high water life journey with Kailey as a couple. “Your love is like, a porch swing on Sunday / Just as gentle as a summer sunrise / They say ‘It’s where the heart is’, well, mine’s with you, babe / Long as I got your hand, I’m fine, yeah” Dickerson sings in the opening verse.
He then proclaims passionately and resolutely in the chorus: “Home sweet, you and me / Ain’t got much but we got all we need.” Indeed, sometimes the simplicity and sustenance of true love is all anyone needs.
“This song is as real as it gets. The week Kailey and I got home from our honeymoon, my income stopped,” the Tennessee native recalled in a press release. “I was in between deals and we were flat broke! Now we just moved into our new house and have a baby on the way so yeah, ‘Home Sweet’ is about as spot-on real-life as it gets.”
“Home Sweet” follows the “Love You Like I Used To,” the lead single from Dickerson upcoming as-yet-untitled sophomore album. It follows his 2017 debut record Yours, which spawned the hit singles “Every Little Thing,” “Blue Tacoma” and the title track.
“Home Sweet” is also featured on Sounds Like Nashville’s Today’s Country- Summer Edition playlist. Listen to the track and many more summer jams below.
