He earned a Bachelor's degree in music from Belmont University and signed with Creative Artists Agency in 2010.[3] In 2011, he released an extended play, Die to Live Again, and opened for David Nail.[4] He toured with Canaan Smith in 2015,[5] and Thomas Rhett in the summer of 2016.

In 2015, he released the single "Yours" written by Dickerson, Parker Welling, and Casey Brown.[6] It became the title track to his second extended play, released on January 18, 2016 by Dent Records.[7] The EP debuted at number 14 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart,[8] selling 2,700 copies in its first week of release.[9] It launched at number 2 in the iTunes Country Store and number 8 in all genres.[10] In its 39th week on Billboard's Country Airplay chart, Dickerson jumped from number 3 to 1 on the list on January 27, 2018.

The album, Yours was released on October 13, 2017 and premiered at No. 1 on Billboard's Heat Seeker chart. The album peaked at No. 5 on Top Country Albums dated November 4, 2017, with 12,000 equivalent album units in its first week, and includes five songs co-written by Dickerson, containing an acoustic wedding version of the title track "Yours."[12] Due to the popularity of his hit single, he landed on the iTunes Best of 2015 year-end list, TheKnot.com's "Best Wedding Songs of 2016," and Spotify's #SpotifySpotlight 2016; where he later became one of Spotify's RISE artists.[13] Dickerson made his Grand Ole Opry debut on June 3, 2016.[14]
