Biography[edit]

Tyler Dickerson was born in Hattiesburg, Mississippi to Steven and Crystal Dickerson. He began performing at an early age, and by eleven he had started performing at venues in Florida. In 2005, he won Florida Male Vocalist and Male Entertainer of the Year awards for his age group.[3] He had also become a regular performer at Tootsie's Orchid Lounge in Nashville, Tennessee.[2]

Dickerson signed to a recording contract with Lyric Street Records in late 2009 after entering a talent search associated with John Rich of Big & Rich,[2] who also mentored him.[4] He released his first single, "Tell Your Sister I'm Single," in February 2010.[2] The song is written by Amanda Williams, Trevor Rosen, and Isaac Rich (brother of John Rich). Dickerson also signed on as an opening act for Brooks & Dunn's Last Rodeo Tour.[5]

The song has received positive reviews from music critics. CM Wilcox of The 9513 gave the song a thumbs-up, saying that "it certainly feels like the arrival of a talent well worth watching in the years to come."[6] Bobby Peacock of Roughstock also gave a positive review, saying that Dickerson "clearly plays the premise for laughs."[7] "Tell Your Sister I'm Single" debuted at No. 51 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts dated for the week ending March 13, 2010.

Dickerson now sings in the Louisiana-based band Rockin Rouge.[8]
