Lately there’s been plenty to smile about. The Nashville native has had an incredible reaction to his current single, “Yours.” The power ballad was selected for Sirius XM’s The Highway Find program, which showcases new, and often times unsigned, artists to country music fans across the country. In the blink of an eye, Dickerson found himself competing with artists such as Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan on the satellite station’s weekly Hot 45 countdown, successfully reaching #3.Soon after, Dickerson released his EP, “Yours,” which debuted at #2 in the iTunes country store and #8 in all genres. The album also premiered at #1 onBillboard’s Heat Seeker chart and #14 onBillboard’s Top Country Album chart. The album features five songs co-written by Dickerson, including a stripped down wedding version of the title track “Yours.” Boosted by the power of his hit single, he landed on the iTunes Best of 2015 year-end list, TheKnot.com’s Best Wedding Songs of 2016, and Spotify’s #SpotifySpotlight 2016.
In just a short amount of time, Dickerson’s fans solidified him unanimously as the next big thing. Over 30 million streams on Spotify, three million views on YouTube and skyrocketing social media followers have come pouring in. He quickly found himself touring with the likes of Canaan Smith and Billy Currington, as well as joining Florida Georgia Line on their cruise for the second year in a row in addition to headlining his own dates. Dickerson also got to have that moment every artist dreams about – making his debut at the Grand Ole Opry.
“Since day one, all I’ve ever known is music. I love touring, I love playing the shows…I love connecting with every single person.” The multi-instrumentalist and successful songwriter is busy recording his next project, and he’s characteristically optimistic that his fans will embrace the album just as much as they have him. “At the end of the day, it’s all about the fans. I want them to leave my shows feeling changed. I live to make them smile.”
