After More Than 30 Million Streams, Russell Dickerson Is Ready for You to Hear “Yours” on Country Radio

If Spotify streams and YouTube views are any indication, Tennessee native Russell Dickerson has a bona fide hit on his hands with his single, “Yours,” which he released to country radio today (April 24). The tune, which was co-penned by Russell, Casey Brown and Parker Welling, has been streamed more than 30 million times on Spotify and the video has more than 3 million views on YouTube.

With that kind of Internet-friendly momentum behind him—as well as being a part of Thomas Rhett’s current Home Team Tour—Russell is ready for you to hear “Yours” on country radio.

“People just connected to ‘Yours,’ and shared it and it became this wedding song,” says Russell to Nash Country Daily. “We didn’t write it for that. We weren’t like, ‘Hey, what would couples love to hear for their first dance?’ But it’s turned into the perfect first-dance song. It was just writing an honest love song. I wrote it with two people that had seen my relationship with my wife from day one and so it was just this super honest love song and I think that’s what connects with people. It is an honest love song because when you meet that one person, it changes you.”

Russell’s wife, Kailey, obviously liked the song so much that she took it upon herself to direct, shoot and edit a music video for “Yours” (she also co-stars in it).

“We were just going to shoot some test footage and we were out on this back road and it just happened this giant storm was rolling in and so we were like, ‘All right, this is getting real. This is the magic right here,’ so we just shot up and down that road as many times as we could,” says Russell. “Then it just like started pouring down rain and I was soaked from head to toe and we just kept going and kept going just to capture as much as we could.”

Brian Kelley Finds A Solo Home

Earlier this year Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard announced that while Florida Georgia Line would continue, both guys would also be venturing out to do their own musical projects. As their FGL song “Long Live” is knocking on the door to number-1, Tyler is also climbing the chart with Tim McGraw and their duet “Undivided.”

Now, Brian is giving fans a taste of what’s to come with his solo project – he shared, “There’s a new kind of cowboy in town…who’s ready to ride this wave? Can’t wait for y’all to hear this new music.”

Brian also made some news in announcing that he’s partnering with Warner Music Nashville when it comes to any future solo projects he has, “I couldn’t be more grateful for everyone who has helped me on my journey to get here. I’m humbled to team up with Warner Music Nashville to take the music I’ve been dreamin’ and schemin’ up to the next level. This is just the beginning of a whole new adventure. My vision for what’s next is a vibe and state of mind – get ready to ride the wave with ya Beach Cowboy, y’all!”
