Yours is the debut studio album recorded by American country pop singer and songwriter Russell Dickerson.[2] It was released on October 13, 2017, through Triple Tigers Records.[3] Produced by Casey Brown, the record follows Dickerson's 2016 EP of the same name. It was preceded by the Gold-certified single, "Yours".

Content[edit]

Yours includes five tracks previously released on the similarly-titled extended play.[4] An alternate "wedding version" of the title track is included as the final track on both releases.[1][3] "Blue Tacoma" has received some unsolicited airplay on country radio.[2] The song titled "MGNO" is an initialism for "my girl's night out."[5] Dickerson co-wrote every song on the album.[6]

Commercial performance[edit]

Yours debuted at No. 5 on the Top Country Albums chart and No. 39 on the Billboard 200,[7] selling 7,600 copies (12,000 units including streams and track sales) in the first week.[8] The album has sold 15,600 copies in the United States as of February 2018.[9]

Singles[edit]

The title track, "Yours", serves as the lead single. It was first released independently as a digital single on July 23, 2015, and was later serviced to country radio on April 24, 2017 after Dickerson signed with Triple Tigers Records.[10][11] The song has reached the top of the Country Airplay chart and the top 50 of the Hot 100.

"Blue Tacoma" was released to radio on March 5, 2018 as the album's second single.[12]
