From the music classrooms of Belmont University, to the Home Team Tour with Thomas Rhett, to his first national television performance on The Bachelorette, Russell Dickerson’s stardom has been a long time coming. After working hard to prepare his tunes, Dickerson revealed that he will be releasing his full-length debut album, Yours, on October 13.
Yours will feature some of the popular tracks from his current EP including “Blue Tacoma,” “MGNO,” and “Every Little Thing,” plus seven brand new songs. It also features the title-track and his current single “Yours.” The album, produced by Casey Brown, was entirely co-written by Dickerson, proving that he not only has incredible vocals, but a knack for songwriting as well.
“I’m beyond stoked to have my first full length album out and available for pre-order!” said Dickerson. “The support from my fans is what has brought me this far. The Yours EP has changed my life, and I cannot wait to see what the Yours album will bring!”
In celebration of the album announcement and the release of his single, “Yours,” Dickerson will be making his first ever morning television appearance on NBC’s Today show on July 10 in the 10 a.m. hour.
Though it is just being released to radio, the album’s title track became a fan-favorite when Dickerson released the song in 2015, achieving over 40 million streams since then. Dickerson, Casey Brown and Parker Welling penned the track for Dickerson’s wife Kailey, who also shot and produced the music video that now has over than 3 million views.
With romantic lyrics like “I came to life when I first kissed you / The best me has his arms around you / You make me better than I was before / Thank God I’m yours,” the song has been chosen for the first dance song at many weddings, prompting the release of a softer and sweeter stripped down version that makes the love song even more fitting for such an occasion.
Russell Dickerson will spend the rest of the summer out on the road at various shows. In September, he will be a special guest on Florida Georgia Line’s Smooth Tour, just in time to start performing new music in preparation for his album release.
