“I’m so dang proud of this album,” said Russell Dickerson. “I’d say I’ve been working on this album the last couple years, but really I’ve been writing it my entire life. 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.”

Just weeks before the release of SOUTHERN SYMPHONY, the album’s debut single “Love You Like I Used To,” co-written by Casey Brown and Parker Welling, took home the No. 1 spot for two consecutive weeks atop the Mediabase and Billboard Country Airplay charts. With over 150M global streams to date and counting, the success of “Love You Like I Used To” follows Dickerson’s back-to-back No. 1’s “Yours,” “Blue Tacoma,” and “Every Little Thing,” and marks Dickerson as the first artist to release four consecutive career-starting singles that reached No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart since Luke Combs. He also joins Combs as the second solo artist and fourth act overall to have four or more singles reach No. 1 on the Country Airplay chart since its inception in January 1990.

SOUTHERN SYMPHONY is a true reflection of the prolific songwriter and powerhouse showman’s personality. The Nashville-native singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist delivers an album stacked with heartfelt country anthems and pop-bangers in only a way that Russell Dickerson can.
