Russell Dickerson Essentials

Russell Dickerson’s brand of romantic country-pop mixes punchy arrangements with cinematic scope, and since the 2010s, he’s been regularly shooting for the rafters with big singles like his ode to West Coast road trips, “Blue Tacoma." Even “Yours,” which begins softly sentimental, winds up as a full-blown epic love song, and the Lady A collab “Home Sweet” celebrates domestic life with arena-sized grandeur. The seductive “She Likes It” might be the exception that proves the rule, as he slows things down to a simmer for a night in. He’s a deft lyricist, too, pulling a bait-and-switch on the deceptively feel-good “Love You Like I Used To.”
