Russell Dickerson Achieves Rare Feat as First Three Singles Hit No. 1

Russell Dickerson Album Release

One of our all-time favorite artists and one of our day ones’, Russell Dickerson has achieved a monumental feat. His first three singles to ever be released to country radio hit the number one spot on the charts, including “Yours,” “Blue Tacoma,” and most recently, “Every Little Thing.”

Although there are tons of artists that have reached the top spot on the charts, there are only a few, who have accomplished this as a brand new artist. Dickerson joins the likes of Luke Combs, who currently holds the record with six number ones in a row and Kelsea Ballerini, who’s first three singles all reached the coveted number one spot. Florida Georgia Line rounds out this list with their first four singles also hitting the top spot on Country Airplay in modern times.

This is a testament to these artists, who know their fan base and audience so well that they delivered a debut record that both fans and country radio love and support. Dickerson’s hard work and organic rise to fame deserves to be recognized and applauded, as he truly is the epitome of what hitting the pavement, never giving up, and keeping a positive attitude can do for you.

His first number one, “Yours,” was truly the little song that could. Dickerson first played the song for us, when we hosted our first ever Country Brunch with the singer-songwriter back in January 2016. This was before his record deal and before his debut album, but even then the entertainer knew how to win over fans in the room and mesmerize even the skeptics with his undeniable charm and talent.  Country fans who got to witness his magic and stage presence early on knew then that we had a superstar on our hands.

Russell Dickerson

“Blue Tacoma,” his second single to country radio off his debut record Yours, topped the charts almost a year to the date of his album release. If that’s not proof that he is made for this life, then we don’t know what is! Dickerson played this song, along with his third number one, “Every Little Thing,” and “MGNO,” at our Country On the Water event back in the summer of 2016, when all he had out was an EP.

We are so proud to champion his career over the years, and truly appreciate how he has stayed as humble as they come; despite, all his well-deserved success. Dickerson’s love and pride for what he does was truly showcased when he performed his heart out at Madison Square Garden back in September.

Years prior, our founder, Stephanie Wagner manifested that he would one day perform on that stage. Dickerson also remembered that moment and took time out of his performance to show his support for NYCountry Swag, shouting out our company on the sold-out venue filled with 18k country fans.

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!

It will be interesting to see, who will join this crew of talented singer-songwriters next! In the meantime, check out some other rising artists, whose debut singles hit, the top spot on the charts here.

For our full recap of the unforgettable concert, click here. The famed venue is an exciting play for any artist, however, Dickerson who has been playing for NYC fans for years was especially emotional.

Russell Dickerson People.com

He shared with People.com a behind-the-scenes look at the night, photos of backstage, prepping with his band, a moment with his wife, Kailey and even included another shout out to NYCountry Swag, the very first company to have him perform in NYC in 2016.

Thomas Rhett & His ‘VHS’ Tour Give Fans an Unforgettable Night at MSG

Thomas Rhett MSG VHS Tour

It was truly an unforgettable night at Madison Square Garden as Thomas Rhett brought his Very Hot Summer (VHS) tour to a sold-out “The World’s Most Famous Arena.” With him were special guests Russell Dickerson, Dustin Lynch and his father, Rhett Akins, to support his funk-infused country show that left the New York City fans in awe.

Rhett Akins led off with two songs he wrote for other artists: Jon Pardi’s “Dirt on My Boots” and Blake Shelton’s “Boys ‘Round Here.” He mentioned how cool it was to be opening for his son, playing at this iconic arena again. He played two original songs in “Don’t Get Me Started” and “That Ain’t My Truck.” Putting things in perspective, Akins said he wrote: “That Ain’t My Truck” when his son was only four years old.

Back in 2016, just weeks after NYCountry Swag officially launched, we hosted Russell Dickerson during our very first event at Libation NYC. To say we believed in him and his talent is a vast understatement, and we just knew that one day we would be celebrating his Madison Square Garden debut. Watching him perform for that many fans, hearing them sing back his words was emotional for our entire team. He played five songs from his latest album, Yours including the title track, “Billions,” “Blue Tacoma,” his current single “Every Little Thing” and “MGNO” (My Girl’s Night Out) that he blended with Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.” Dickerson got emotional after performing “Blue Tacoma” as he recalled playing for our company in a small bar to now playing Madison Square Garden in the heart of New York City.

 

“I remember sitting on top of a barstool, sitting on a box, (for) a little thing called NYCountry Swag (playing with) a microphone duct-taped to a mic stand with about twenty-five people there. The fact that all y’all packed in tonight…thank you, thank you.” MSG turned into a rave scene during “MGNO” as the fans were dancing and cheering the singer-songwriter on as he jumped and ran all over the stage. The Tennessee native hyped up the NYC fans as they got ready for the next act, Dustin Lynch.

Lynch started with the lead single from his third studio album, Current Mood, “Seein’ Red” then followed it with three songs from his second album Where It’s At, including the title track, “Hell Of a Night” and “Mind Reader.” During his performance of “I’d Be Jealous Too,” Lynch sat in the middle of the stretched out catwalk signing autographs, taking selfies and singing into fans’ cell phones. Lynch then went all the way back to his first single, “Cowboys and Angels,” a song in which he wrote as a dedication to the love his grandparents shared.

 

Lynch took a lot of time to talk to the crowd about his journey from being a kid listening to country music all the way to opening for Thomas Rhett at Madison Square Garden. His biggest influences growing up were George Strait and Garth Brooks, along with Batman and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, of course. He covered bits of four songs in between each portion of the story: “Chattahoochee” by Alan Jackson, “Something Like That” by Tim McGraw, “What Was I Thinkin’” by Dierks Bentley and “Love Somebody Like You” by Keith Urban. Lynch has a special relationship with both Urban and Bentley. Dierks told Dustin to knock on every door and take every chance you can get if you want to be a successful artist. Those words stuck with him to this very day.  “If you guys take anything away from my show tonight, I want you to take this away: If you have a dream and you really believe in yourself…do not take ‘no’ for an answer, from anybody,”  he emoted. “We’re here living the dream tonight because we did that.” Lynch will join Dierks Bentley for a special show at Michie Stadium in West Point, NY, home of the Army Black Knights on October 18th.

The singer-songwriter recalled receiving a phone call back in 2012 from a number he did not recognize. He picked up anyway and it was Keith Urban on the other line asking him to join him on his Light The Fuse Tour with Little Big Town. That was the first time Lynch and his band played this historic arena. Lynch closed his set with his most recent single, “Ridin’ Roads” and two number ones in “Good Girl” and “Small Town Boy.” Lynch tipped his cowboy hat as he exited the stage as fans got ready for their headliner, Thomas Rhett.

 

Rhett literally jumped out of the stage (yes, he was inside the stage) and began singing his most recent number one hit, “Look What God Gave Her” from his most recent album Center Point Road. He kept the energy going with three more upbeat songs, one from each of his first three albums; “Crash And Burn” from Tangled, “Get Me Some of That” – It Goes Like This and “Craving You” – Life Changes.

At the end of Rhett’s performance of “Notice,” the crowd went silent as the 2019 ACM Male Artist of the Year played one more acoustic chorus of the song. The fans responded with loud applause. After “Sixteen,”  One of Rhett’s powerhouse backup vocalists joined him on stage to take Little Big Town’s spot in the R&B-influenced track off the new album, “Don’t Threaten Me with a Good Time.” He then followed that with a speech before playing his current single “Remember You Young.” Rhett got choked up on stage reminiscing about how he got here. Back in 2013 he opened for Jason Aldean at MSG and only got twenty minutes on stage. Flash-forward six years later he is headlining a sold-out show at the same venue. Fans lit up the crowd with their flashlights during this very sentimental song.

Rhett went a different route with his performance of “Make Me Wanna” as he jazzed up the traditional-sounding country song by heavily adding the six-piece band that was behind him. Rhett also threw in a verse from Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie” in the middle of his number one song. After performing his most personal song, “Life Changes,” the 29-year-old played three stripped-down songs, including “Star of the Show,” “That Old Truck” and an unreleased song titled “To The Guys Who Date My Girls.” Although it’s a slow, heartfelt tune, Rhett throws some humor in there with the line “When you pull her close, make sure you leave some room for Jesus. If you cross that line, I swear boy, you’re gonna meet him.”  You can listen to the song below.

Next, he mentioned before performing “Beer Can’t Fix” that Jon Pardi, the country artist who is featured on the studio recording was not in attendance, so he was going to need some help. When Pardi’s verse came up, Lynch and Dickerson returned to the stage sporting New York Knicks jerseys to continue the song. Then Rhett Akins ran up the long catwalk with a cooler and then distributed cans of Bud Light to the guys on stage.

Rhett stretched out “Vacation” and handed the mic over to the DJ to introduce the band behind the country super-star. Each of them got a solo on their respected instrument and when it was time for Rhett’s shout-out, he dazzled the crowd with an incredible drum solo.

He couldn’t leave the stage before performing his last two slow songs of the night in “Marry Me” and “Die a Happy Man.” Rhett let the audience sing the final chorus of “Die a Happy Man” which gave us, and probably a majority of the fans, major chills. “If Madison Square Garden in New York City is the last show I ever get to play…I could die, a happy man,” he sung as the final lyrics to his number one hit song.

 

Rhett ended this spectacular show with “Unforgettable” and “T-shirt”. For the finale of “Unforgettable”, Rhett ran across the stage as rainbow-colored confetti rained down onto the fans. Words cannot describe the energy of the crowd the entire 90-plus minute show. A historic night at Madison Square Garden for the artists and the fans alike. For exclusive clips from the show, head to our Instagram Stories highlight.

Although this week marks the beginning of fall, Rhett and his supporting cast will extend summer until October 12th where they will close the tour at the one and only Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.

To keep up with Thomas Rhett, follow him on TwitterInstagram, and Facebook.

5 Reasons You Shouldn’t Miss Russell Dickerson on the VHS Tour

One of our favorite rising artists is Russell Dickerson and he is currently on tour with Dustin Lynch, Rhett Akins, and Thomas Rhett as it makes its way across the country this summer. The ‘Very Hot Summer Tour’ is coming to PNC Bank Arts Center this Saturday, August 3rd and comes to the iconic Madison Square Garden on September 20th.

Russell Dickerson

We’ve been featuring Dickerson since before he was signed to his record deal with Triple Tigers and way before his debut album. He was the very first artist at our first event in January of 2016 and we’ve championed his career since then. With two number one hits, “Yours” and “Blue Tacoma” and sold-out shows, he is well on his way to superstardom and here are 5 reasons why you should be sure to head into the venue early to catch his opening set.

1. His Energy Is Contagious

From the minute he steps on stage, Russell Dickerson brings the energy level to an 11. He runs around the stage performing his hit songs and gives everything he has during his shows. Most recently, we caught his set for New York’s Country 94.7 Kick Off to Summer and at the very end of his set, with the help of radio personality Kelly Ford, he removed his shoes, ran through the crowd and dove into the pool.

 

 

2. His Music Is Perfect To Sing Along To

Even if you have never seen Dickerson live, you will be able to sing along to his songs during his set, especially his summertime jam, “Float” which he instructs the crowd to just spell out the word to the infectious beat. His debut single “Yours” and his second number single to radio were played so often we can guarantee that you will know those words too. He even throws in an upbeat cover of Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” when he mashes the classic with his song “MGNO” (My Girls Night Out). Each time he closes his show with that mashup, you will find yourself jumping up and down to the beat with the entire venue.

 

3. You’ll Be In The Presence of True Love

If you have a good view of the side stage, always standing there, singing along and rooting on her husband is Russ’ wife, Kailey. “Yours” was written about their love story and Kailey is always his biggest supporter, she even filmed the music video for the song which was nominated for a CMT Award. To read more about how they met and fell in love, be sure to read our interview with his beautiful partner when she was our Woman of the Month back in 2018.

4. His First Two Songs Hit the Top of the Charts and His Next Single Is Climbing the Charts Too

Just a few months after his debut album Yours, was released, the title track hit the very top of the charts which is an incredible feat for a new artist. Then, almost a year to the day from the album release, his second single “Blue Tacoma” took that top spot. His latest single “Every Little Thing” is another absolute jam and is currently climbing the charts so when you hear it on the radio be sure to TURN IT UP.

5. You Can Say You Knew Him When

For followers of NYCountry Swag, you knew about the singer-songwriter way before his record deal and number ones since he jumped up on the bar to play our Country Brunch in January of 2016 and then hit Rockaway Beach for a Country Night on the Water in June of 2016. Watch a recap video from the incredible night of music above. If you’ve followed us since those early days you can claim you knew him when and if you haven’t you can be sure to take notice of this rising star before he takes off into superstardom.

Make sure you get into the venue early to see Dickerson’s sure to be killer set! If you don’t have your tickets yet grab them here for PNC Bank Arts Center this Saturday, August 3rd and for Madison Square Garden September 20th

All three tracks had the crowd singing along.

Russell Dickerson Releases “Every Little Thing” Stripped

Russell Dickerson Every Little Thing

If you have seen Russell Dickerson perform live then you know he is a ball full of energy, running, jumping and dancing around the stage. One song after another he brings the crowd to another level each and every time.

His latest single “Every Little Thing” which is currently climbing up the country music charts is another ode to his beautiful wife Kailey, who he just celebrated a six-year wedding anniversary with. Although the track was written by Dickerson with Parker Welling and Casey Brown about his wife, anyone who truly admires even the smallest quirks about their significant other can relate.

“Yeah, she’s Seattle and Sonoma / Runs on coffee and red wine / Easy like Sunday morning and wild like Saturday night / She’s 24-carat goodness, an angel’s all I see / She dresses up for everything, but she only dress down for me”

Released on Friday, Dickerson gave “Every Little Thing” a make-over, stripping it down to an acoustic version. Although it keeps the same mid-tempo pace, the newer version allows you to focus strictly on Dickerson’s delivery of each lyric.

To accompany the stripped version, you can watch a color-block video of the song on Spotify here. Check out the official music video for the track below.

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

“Every Little Thing” Stripped is now available everywhere you buy or stream music. Take a listen below and check out more new recently released music here on our ‘New Country Music’ playlist. Be sure to give the playlist a follow for your weekly new country music fix.

Coming off his recent ACM nomination for Song of the Year for “Yours”, Tennessee native, Russell Dickerson is giving us all a feel-good vibe in the video for his newest song “Every Little Thing.” The third single from his debut album is a crowd favorite at his shows and was inspired by his love for his wife Kailey.

In the accompanying video, Dickerson is rehearsing for his show, and with one kiss from his wife, he is performing on stage to a packed house of fans singing along to every word. The video is set in Chinatown and the singer-songwriter is having some light-hearted fun in a convenience store with his wife singing, “Cause I love every little, every little, every little thing about her love/Just a little, just little, just a little ain’t enough/ Gotta get a, gotta get a, get a little more of all she does/Cause I love every little, every little, every little thing about her love.”

No matter where or what Dickerson is doing, as long as he is with the woman he loves – all is okay. He describes the amazing qualities his wife has in “Every Little Thing” with lyrics: “She’s easy like Sunday morning and wild like Saturday night/she’s 24-carat goodness, an angel’s all I see.” The music video of the catchy song highlights the incredible energy Dickerson brings to his set on tour and after watching it, who would not want to be there?

Dickerson has a jam-packed summer ahead joining Dustin Lynch and Thomas Rhett on the 2019 Very Hot Summer Tour. The star-studded lineup will head to Madison Square Garden on September 20th. By the looks of it, Dickerson has every little thing to look forward to this year!

The wife of the talented Chris Stapleton, Morgane Stapleton is a force to be reckoned with. Besides being a rockstar mother of four with one on the way, she is a singer-songwriter in her own right. Morgane often performs with her husband, singing background and harmony vocals both live and recorded. Stapleton credits his wife for being instrumental in the creation of his award-winning record. In addition, she has written songs for artists, such as Carrie Underwood and Kellie Pickler, as well as, provided background vocals on records for singers such as Dierks Bentley and Lee Ann Womack.

These wives of country musicians all embody women with ambition, compassionate, and most importantly, can and do serve as role models to other women both in and out of the industry. These women and many others can stand on their own, as well as, in support of their awesome husbands. We hope to continue to see and champion more and more women as they find their success.  For more incredible women in the music industry, check out our Women of the Month series.

Not only did Russell Dickerson take Stage 17 at NASH FM 94.7 for a live set, but it also included a surprise announcement for all country music fans in New York/New Jersey area.

NASH FM welcomed backed Kelly Ford to the studio after a long road on her morning show in Nashville, “Ty, Chuck & Kelly.” NASH FM 94.7 had a warm welcoming message back saying, “This is more than just a radio station, we’re in this together… NASH Nation, this is for you. You called, texted, emailed and commented a lot; we heard you loud and clear,” announcing Ford’s new local morning show debuting Feb. 4 after three years of living in Nashville. The crowd gave her a rousing round of applause and Ford gave the most heartwarming speech including an exciting shout out to NYCountry Swag, talking about the very first time Dickerson had played an event in New York City, our country brunch back in January of 2016 which Ford MCed.

Dickerson then took the stage and performed his second No. 1 song “Blue Tacoma” and his current single “Every Little Thing.” Ford then asked Dickerson questions about new music, explaining how he penned songs with Lady Antebellum while he was out on tour with them last summer. Ford asked Dickerson to talk about the passionate New York/New Jersey country music fans and what makes us different, he replied “New York chooses it, it’s not on every station. They fight for it, they’re passionate about it and that’s why we keep coming back.” Dickerson also revealed who his favorite physical aspirations are in terms of performers, he replied, “Obviously Garth Brooks, he’s everywhere on stage. When I see him do that, he’s so engaging. Sometimes performers just focus on themselves meanwhile the fans are the reason why we’re performing, that’s my main focus.” Dickerson then played his first No. 1 single “Yours” to end the exciting show. Check out the full live stream below.

It was an emotional rollercoaster yet inspiring day welcoming Ford back to NASH FM 94.7 and having Dickerson there to celebrate and perform made it even more special. Dickerson is currently on The Way Back Tour with Carly Pearce and will make an appearance again here in New York at MSG with Thomas Rhett on Sep. 20.

When Ford returns to the New York airwaves next week, she will be joining the midday host Katie Neal and Jesse Addy who airs in the afternoon to form a popular and powerful Nash team. Be sure to tune in to Nash FM 94.7 on Feb. 4 from 6-10 A.M. to hear ‘Kelly Ford in the Mornings’.
