"Do you play basketball?" has been the number one question of Russell Dickerson's life. While his athletic 6'4'' frame gives away that he is an athlete, his first love has always been music. He fell in love with hooks and melodies long before he fell in love with a girl. Russell is a Nashville native and no stranger to the music industry. When people ask him what his favorite part about being an artist, he will always answer, "Playing shows and being on the road." His love affair with the road first began in college. When presented the opportunity to guitar tech on a major tour, he dropped his books and hit the road. He is an artist who isn't satisfied with simply producing, packaging and shipping his music out. Watching other people live through music inspires him, a quality that is evident in his captivating ability to entertain. 

Performing is on my mind most of any given day. It is what I envision when I am writing, it is what I dream about at night, it is what I want to be doing day in and day out. There is nothing greater than watching fans sing along to the songs that tell their stories and mine.

After his adventure on the road, he returned to Belmont University to finish his degree in music. "Those were huge years for me as an artist. My understanding of music went so much deeper than anything I could have learned on my own." By the time he graduated he had already been discovered by Creative Artist Agency, John Dennis Entertainment, and signed his first publishing deal. His first single, " Green Light," remained on Sirius XM: The Highway's "Hot 30 Live" for seven weeks straight as an independent artist.

Everyone likes Russ as soon as they meet him. Everyone falls in love with Russ when they first hear him. When a guy like Russell has the talent that he has, you undoubtedly have a star. His drive to chase his calling has enabled him to share the stage with artists like Florida Georgia Line, Billy Currington, Kip Moore, Darius Rucker, Kelly Pickler and more. He has traveled the country falling more and more in love with country fans everywhere and he isn't stopping anytime soon. 

I’d put country fans against any other genre any day. They’re loyal, lifetime music lovers and I love every last one of ‘em
