Russell Dickerson’s latest single, “Love You Like I Used To,” continues to make an impact at radio. Co-written by Dickerson alongside Parker Welling and Casey Brown, the soaring ballad is initially set up like a breakup song, however, he goes on to reveal he doesn’t love his partner like he used to because he loves her more now than ever before.
“But I don’t love you like I used to/ This gets better every time you kiss me like this/ It’s stronger the longer I’m with you, yeah/ More than every single day before/ Didn’t know I could ever love you more than I did/ But baby I do, I don’t love you like I used to,” Dickerson sings on the chorus.
The song is the lead single from his much-anticipated sophomore album and is very personal to the Tennessee native.
“The beginning of this song is intentionally different from me,” the soon-to-be father previously explained about the song. “It makes you think it is a breakup song, but it is really a lead up to how great loves evolve and get better over time. Like all of my songs, I’ve lived it. I started dating my wife 10 years ago, and it is true—I don’t love her like I used to, and I think a lot of people will be able to relate to this song. It’s a really special song that I’m crazy proud of!”
The recently released music video brings the song to life, and even features a twist in the storyline, just like the song. Click below to watch.
