Russell Dickerson to Release Sophomore Album, “Southern Symphony,” on Dec. 4

Russell Dickerson will follow up his successful 2017 debut album, Yours, by releasing his sophomore album, Southern Symphony, on Dec. 4.

The 10-song project was co-produced by Casey Brown and Dann Huff. The album’s lead single, “Love You Like I Used To,” is currently Top 10 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.

Southern Symphony is hands down the best work I’ve created,” says Russell, “It’s the best songs I’ve written. It’s sonically the best we’ve created. This album is 10 honest and true tracks that tell the story of how I’ve grown as an artist and a man. I could not be more proud of every song on this album.”

After topping the charts with “Yours” and “Blue Tacoma” in 2018, Russell scored his third No. 1 single with “Every Little Thing” in November 2019. All three of Russell’s No. 1 songs are featured on Yours.

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
