Dickerson, Pearce tour together
Wednesday, November 7, 2018
– Russell Dickerson and Carly Pearce announced today they will be embarking on an 11-city U.S. tour, The Way Back Tour, early next year.
Both have enjoyed hits with Dickerson scoring with "Yours" and "Blue Tacoma" and Pearce with "Every Little Thing."
Starting Jan. 24, 2019 in Cleveland, OH, the pair found themselves in the same songwriting circles earlier in their careers.
"Carly and I go way, way back, and we have cheered each other on for years," said Dickerson. "Breaking onto the scene together has been such a fun ride, so we had to book a tour together to celebrate."
"It's crazy to think about eight years ago when Russell and I had a residency in Nashville together. Now, to see the evolution of our careers that have mirrored in so many ways is a dream come true," said Pearce. "Sometimes slow and steady wins the race, and I couldn't be more proud of how far we've come."
Tour dates are:
Jan. 24 Cleveland, OH House of Blues
Jan. 25 Madison, WI The Sylvee
Jan. 26 Fort Wayne, IN The Clyde Theatre

Russell Dickerson's "Yours" may make you ask yourself, 'Is this really country music?' many times over. The first track to bring up this query is "Billions." This song, speculating how true love is worth its weight in gold, bobs along to a faux reggae beat and could easily be mistaken for a Maroon 5 single. Another, "MGNO," an acronym for 'my girl's night out,' opens with an echoing electric guitar intro seemingly kipped directly from The »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Gayle, Orlando provide good old-fashioned entertainment
Although this pairing of country star Crystal Gayle and Tony Orlando may have - on the surface - appeared to be an odd one, tonight's audience demonstratively loved each performer equally. It was an evening of memorable songs, fun and funny stories and just good old-fashioned entertainment.

Concert Review: With or without band, Isbell satisfies
Usually, when an artist performs without his regular backing band, it becomes about mathematics of subtraction. That artist is armed with far fewer artistic weapons at his/her disposal, after all. In Jason Isbell's case, though, when he performed with just his wife and fiddler Amanda Shires, it was more about substitution than subtraction.... »»»
