Watch Russell Dickerson Perform No. 1 Hit, “Yours,” on “Jimmy Kimmel”

After 39 weeks at country radio, Russell Dickerson’s “Yours” hit the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Country Airplay chart in January.

The tune, which was co-penned by Russell, Casey Brown and Parker Welling, was inspired by Russell’s relationship with his wife, Kailey.

“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 stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live last night (Jan. 31) to perform his hit tune. Watch his performance below.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
