Russell Dickerson first entered our radar here at CML with his catchy song, Yours. That one did pretty well on our CML Chart. Russell has a knack for catchy songs it seems. And he has a new one that popped up on Wild Country recently on Spotify.
Let’s check this one out and see if it can become Russell’s first radio hit.
Blue Tacoma – Russell Dickerson
Russell definitely leans on the pop side of country. But I’m really liking his style. His last single cracked the top 50 at radio and I think this one could go even a little further.
It sounds like a love song about two people that are kind of getting away for the day. I think the title of the track refers to the truck, but I’m not sure. It could be something else, but that’s what I’ll go with.
It’s a good song. You can feel like you’re there experiencing the young love for yourself. Maybe you’re traveling with your sweetie and listening to this one and feeling free and in love.
To me, this one just has a great melody. That’s the biggest thing it has going for it. And it sounds like something that belongs on today’s country radio. It’s difficult for a new artist to breakthrough in the radio world. I could easily hear an established singer having a hit with this one, but hopefully it becomes Russell’s first hit.
What do you think about this one?
