Russell Dickerson delivers an origin story on "Southern Symphony," the title track off his sophomore album. Co-written with Parker Welling and CJ Baran, the wistful track begins with a list of Southern culture staples, like washing up before supper and "the same pew every Sunday," before revealing that those memories arose from time spent with a special woman. Gently picked acoustic guitar, stirring fiddle, and an understated midtempo beat provide a backdrop for the story, which equates the familiar sounds of the South with the sweeping power of an orchestra. As Dickerson puts it at the chorus's end, "Where I come from, that's a love song." This playlist tracks what’s happening from the heart of the country scene to its outer edges.
