– After more than seven years playing country fairs and festivals before picking up a regular weekly gig at Tootsie's on Broadway in Nashville, Tyler Dickerson's debut single, Tell Your Sister I'm Single,
was just released by Lyric Street Records.
The song goes for adds on Feb. 16. Tell Your Sister I'm Single reveals the story the story of a jilted man who, after giving his partner everything she wanted, is ready to celebrate singledom and find someone who will appreciate everything he has to offer.
Born in Hattiesburg, Miss., the 16-year-old singer discovered his love of music when he made his stage debut at the age of eight. He was discovered while singing and playing five days a week on the Tootsie's stage.
"The first time I sang, the man who books the place was outside and didn't get to hear me," he said oin his Myspace page. "The next Saturday I made sure he did. After I finished my two songs he offered me a spot at Tootsies every Tuesday and Thursday. I was hoping for the weekend but at least I had my foot in the door. Pretty soon I got my wish - I was singing Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays on the front stage."
Dickerson, who co-wrote five songs on his upcoming debut CD, has been hard at work in the studio with producer John Rich recording his debut album. The two hooked up after Dickerson entered a John Rich talent search.
No word on when the CD would be out.
