Russell Dickerson claims the No.1 spot on both the Country Aircheck/Mediabase and Billboard Country Airplay charts this week with his latest hit, “Love You Like I Used To.”

The song, which marks Dickerson’s fourth consecutive chart-topping single, was co-written by Dickerson, Parker Welling and Casey Brown.

“THIS IS CRAZY! I’ve always dreamed of having a #1 song on the radio but four in a row is absolutely insane,” the new father shared upon hearing the news. “Shout out to the writers, my amazing team, and country radio for all this crazy love on Love You Like I Used To!”

“Love You Like I Used To” is the lead release from his forthcoming sophomore album, Southern Symphony. Out December 4, the project features 10 tracks, including the boot-stomping “Never Get Old,” which has quickly become a fan-favorite.

“‘Southern Symphony’ is hands down the best work I’ve created,” Dickerson previously shared. “It’s the best songs I’ve written. It’s sonically the best we’ve created. This album is ten honest and true tracks that tell the story of how I’ve grown as an artist and a man. I could not be more proud of every song on this album.”
