Concord Music Publishing signs a worldwide publishing deal with multi-Platinum singer-songwriter Russell Dickerson.
Concord Music Publishing has announced the signing of country singer-songwriter Russell Dickerson. The worldwide deal is effective immediately and includes Dickerson’s complete catalog and future works.
A Tennessee native, Dickerson is the first artist to release four consecutive singles that reached number one on the Country Airplay chart since Luke Combs. After Combs, he is the second solo artist and fourth act overall, with four or more singles reaching number one on the Country Airplay chart since its inception. His breakthrough hit came in 2015 with his single “Yours,” now three-times Platinum certified.
“I’m excited to be joining the Concord family,” said Dickerson. “I love that they are an independent company with worldwide reach. They value songwriters, and today I’m humbled to be joining their roster of incredible talent.”
Dickerson followed up his impressive debut with three more Platinum hits, “Blue Tacoma,” “Every Little Thing,” and “Love You Like I Used To.” His two albums, Yours (2017) and Southern Symphony (2020), have achieved 2.2 billion streams across platforms, leading to tours with artists like Thomas Rhett, Lady A, and Kane Brown. Dickerson has earned a reputation as one of country music’s hottest new talents.

From the writing and recording of his albums, to the incredibly energetic performance in his live shows, he leads every facet of his career with true passion and intense emotion,” says Brad Kennard, senior vice president of A&R at Concord Music Publishing in Nashville. “We could not be more thrilled to represent his incredible catalog and work alongside him in the years to come!”
The worldwide publishing agreement was negotiated on behalf of Concord Music Publishing by Duff Berschback, EVP of Legal and Business Affairs. David Crow represented Dickerson with Milom, Horsnell, Crow, Kelley, Beckett, Shehan PLC in Nashville.
