After 39 weeks at country radio, Russell Dickerson’s “Yours” is the No. 1 song on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. The tune, which was co-penned by Russell, Casey Brown and Parker Welling, was inspired by Russell’s relationship with his wife, Kailey. “Yours” is the lead single from Russell’s self-titled debut album. The breakout ballad that became the wedding anthem of the year has seen 88 million total U.S. audio streams to date, with 3.7 million streams last week, consistently trending up from each week prior. This news arrives on the heels of last week’s announcement that Dickerson is set to support Lady Antebellum and Darius Rucker on their North American “Summer Plays On” Tour, kicking off this July in Toronto.
