About three years ago Tyler Hubbard (of Florida Georgia Line) was talking about a song he wrote that was put out by an artist named Russell Dickerson. I listened to the song and bought it on iTunes immediately. I had become obsessed with the song “That’s My Girl” (side note: not much has changed). Since then, Russell has independently released his current EP, Yours, and created an amazing video with his sweet gem of a wife, Kailey. Since then the sweet Dickerson fam has got to see that title track gain popularity, and on September 29, 2016 RD signed a record deal, with Sony New York and Triple Tiger. (One of my favorite things about Russell is his love for his wife and just how much he credits his her for his success. From taking some awesome photos on the road, and helping create videos, to helping drive from city to city, RD is the first to say Kailey is a major part of the operation).
This woman right here y'all. My number one supporter. She comes on the road to every show, takes every picture, every video, sells my merch, and drives countless hours into the night. She has never complained once about having to get dressed and put on make up in a van, living out of a suitcase and brushing our teeth at truck stops… Haha these are the best days of our lives! We're making these memories, and I'm so glad I get to make them with you baby. WE DID IT! We made a music video for a song about our love and got the world to notice. Now we have a world-wide team to take what we have created to the masses. I love you @kaileydickerson. Thank GOD I'm YOURS!
I got to see Russell at Faster Horses this summer and his show was AMAZING. When they talk about RDparD, they certainly aren’t taking the party lightly, because that’s truly what it is. I got to meet Russell and Kailey at the show, and my mind was blown by how sweet they were. Two of the most kind humans I’ve ever met.
When you look at my about the creator page you see three of my favorite artists are Russell, Thomas Rhett and Kels. The day the Hometeam tour was announced my mother was NOT happy with how loud I screamed… Then she could hear me screaming outside of our house when she was leaving for work (love youuuu) so to say I can’t wait for this Saginaw show to get here is an understatement. Can’t wait for the RDparD to come back to Michigan! Check Russell out on the Hometeam tour and his “Yours” headlining tour this winter! Can’t wait until then? (Me either!) I’ve put together a Spotify playlist of some of my favorite Russell Dickerson songs below! Enjoy 🙂
