Explore Russell Dickerson’s Sophomore Album, “Southern Symphony,” in New “Experience” Video

Russell Dickerson’s sophomore album, Southern Symphony, is available now!

To give fans a sneak peek into each of the 10 tracks on the project, Russell released a new eight-minute video, Southern SymphonyAn Album Experience. The visually stunning clip follows Russell and his family through the Southern Symphony Motel, where his music weaves in and out of the lives of the motel’s guests. The video closes with a poolside show from Russell singing the album’s final track, “Waiting For You.”

“I’m so dang proud of this album, I’d say I’ve been working on this album the last couple years, but really I’ve been writing it my entire life,” says Russell. “From the title track ‘Southern Symphony’ that goes back to all the sounds of my childhood, to ‘Home Sweet,’ the real-life story of going from an all inclusive honeymoon to real-life being broke, then bringing a new baby into the world. This album is piled full of energy, life, and love and I could not be more proud of every second of it.”

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.”
