High energy live set, great songs to dance along to and sheer determination to make it in this business, Russell Dickerson has officially arrived y’all. His debut album, appropriately titled Yours after his incredible love song, is filled with 12 tracks with a little something for every fan. Fans who have seen Dickerson open for Thomas Rhett’s Home Team Tour or most recently Florida Georiga Line’s Smooth Tour know the sheer power he can bring to a live show as he jumps around the stage and engages with his fans. He brings that same energy into this new album, featuring up-tempo songs, slow grooves and even a wedding version of “Yours”.
“I’m beyond stoked to have my first full-length album out and available for pre-order!” he says in a recent press release. “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!” Fans of Dickerson will be pleased to know, five favorites off his Yours EP made the cut for the full-length album including, “Yours” (the original and an acoustic wedding version), “MGNO”, “Blue Tacoma” and “Every Little Thing”. As a co-writer on each of the 12 songs, this album embodies the music that he wants to create, fun music that his fans will love to listen to and that will inspire repeat spins.
Besides “Yours” which started out as a simple love song for his wife Kailey, the album has no shortage of romantic vibes including the up-tempo “Every Little Thing” and the reggae-inspired, “Would You Love Me” as well as “You Look Like A Love Song” which shines with a gospel choir singing background vocals. Dickerson gets sensual with “All Falls Down” and “Low Key” but does it in a way that feels genuine and will make you want to grab a bottle of wine, turn down the lights and slow dance.
For those missing the lazy, hazy days of summer, “Float” will bring you right back and hold you over until you are able to enjoy those warm days at the beach again. The nostalgia-filled, “twentysomething” and “Billions” are primed for arena sing-alongs.
The LP highlights Dickerson’s incredible ability to be versatile, and although it is cohesive each song has its own influence and vibe. Grab Yours on iTunes and check out our recap from our Country Night on the Water with Dickerson last year.
