Tyler Dickerson releases debut single

Sunday, February 14, 2010 – 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.

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: The Lil Smokies provide the perfect antidote – On a night when the world to be falling further apart thanks to coronavirus (this would be the night the NBA postponed the season), there stood The Lil Smokies to at least in some small measure save the day.

Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music – John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia. But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
