Nashville-bred singer/songwriter Russell Dickerson recorded “Blue Tacoma” in 2016 before signing to Sony’s Triple Tigers label last year, however like many songs, they only better with time. Such is the case with “Blue Tacoma,” having been tapped for the new Marvel comics film Logan, a follow up to the X-Men favorite, Wolverine. The film, in theaters today, features actor Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in his latest X-Men movie.
“I’ve always been a huge X-Men fan! Since the very first movie,” said Dickerson after screening the film and hearing his song’s placement. “You write these songs and put them out into the universe, not knowing their lifespan or reach, so to have a song I wrote and recorded a few years ago appear in one of these Marvel movies today, well it’s the craziest feeling. Fifteen-year-old Russell would be so stoked!”
Dickerson released “Blue Tacoma” on his debut 2016 EP that produced the title track and SiriusXM and Spotify hit, “Yours.” His “hypnotic” (CMT) voice has grown a steadfast fanbase that earned him a spot on current Thomas Rhett’s 2017 Home Team Tour alongside Kelsea Ballerini and Ryan Hurd.
As the tenth movie in the X-Men series, the 20th Century Fox film shows Jackman’s character Logan (aka Wolverine) in a dystopian future for his last venture.
