Russell Dickerson and wife Kailey welcomed their first child—a baby boy named Remington Edward Dickerson—on Sept. 10.
Russell revealed the news via Twitter on Sept. 11, saying, in part: “BABY RD IS HERE!!!!!! I’m so excited to introduce the newest member to the #RDFam, Remington Edward Dickerson.”
Russell and Kailey were married in 2013.
Russell is trying to score his fourth No. 1 single with “Love You Like I Used To,” which is currently No. 19 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. The Top 20 tune, which is the first sample of new music from Russell’s upcoming sophomore album, serves as a love letter to Kailey.
“The beginning of this song is intentionally different from me,” says Russell. “It makes you think it is a breakup song, but it is really a lead up to how great loves evolve and get better over time. Like all of my songs, I’ve lived it. I started dating my wife 10 years ago, and it is true—I don’t love her like I used to, and I think a lot of people will be able to relate to this song. It’s a really special song that I’m crazy proud of!”
After topping the charts with “Yours” and “Blue Tacoma” in 2018, Russell scored his third No. 1 single with “Every Little Thing” in November 2019. All three of Russell’s No. 1 songs are featured on his 2017 debut album, Yours.
