HISTORIC STAGE — Union City native Russell Dickerson is shown performing on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry this week in a photo from the entertainment venue’s Instagram page. The son Richard and Carol Dickerson, he was born and raised here, attending school at Kare Bear Preschool, the former Miles Kindergarten, the former Central Elementary and the former East Side School before moving to Middle Tennessee in 1997. His country music song “Yours,” written in January 2014 with his longtime friends and frequent collaborators Casey Brown and Parker Welling, has been a favorite of couples since its release.
