Russell Dickerson brought a massive, high-octane country music party to The Colosseum at Caesars Windsor on Friday night with his Big Wheels & Back Roads Tour. The Tennessee native hit the stage with boundless energy, whipping the crowd into a frenzy with his string of #1 hits. But before Dickerson took the stage, the crowd was treated to stellar opening sets from Canadian talents Steven Lee Olsen and Windsor’s own Kelsi Mayne, setting the perfect tone for an unforgettable night of music.

Dickerson has seen a meteoric rise in recent years, becoming just the second solo artist after Luke Combs to have four or more singles reach #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. Those chart-toppers include “Yours,” “Blue Tacoma,” “Every Little Thing,” and “Love You Like I Used To.”


He performed several of those smash hits along with new tracks from his latest self-titled album and its deluxe version The After Party Deluxe.

Country star Russell Dickerson brought his high-energy “RD Party” to The Colosseum at Caesars Windsor on Friday night as part of his Big Wheels & Back Roads Tour. The Tennessee native has been on a meteoric rise, becoming the first artist since Luke Combs to release four consecutive career-starting #1 singles on the Billboard Country Airplay chart with hits like “Yours,” “Blue Tacoma,” “Every Little Thing,” and “Love You Like I Used To.”

Dickerson brought the party to The Colosseum, with an insanely energetic show rightfully dubbed an “RD Party.” The Tennessee native performed a dynamic mix of smash hits and new tracks from his latest self-titled album and its deluxe version The After Party Deluxe, keeping the audience on their feet and singing along all night.

Dickerson tore up the stage, running and jumping along a massive ramp that extended from the back all the way to the front, bringing him within arm’s reach of his adoring fans. The innovative stage setup, featuring a dazzling backdrop of pulsing LED screens, perfectly complemented Dickerson’s larger-than-life performance and made for an unforgettable concert experience.

In between the raucous, high-octane numbers, Dickerson slowed things down with beautiful ballads like “Yours,” giving himself and the audience a chance to catch their breath. But those moments of respite were short-lived, as he launched right back into his string of chart-topping hits that had the crowd going wild.

With boundless enthusiasm and a setlist packed with fan favorites, Dickerson more than delivered on his promise of an epic party. His infectious energy never wavered, and it was clear he was having just as much fun as the audience. For the lucky fans in attendance, it was a night they won’t soon forget – a testament to Dickerson’s status as one of country music’s fastest-rising stars. The concert will undoubtedly go down as one of the highlights of Windsor’s 2024 music season.

Opening the show were two talented Canadian acts – Windsor’s own Kelsi Mayne and hitmaker Steven Lee Olsen.

Steven Lee Olsen

Steven Lee Olsen, the main support act for Dickerson, is a phenomenal songwriter and an honest, true talent. The Canadian artist has written hits for some of the biggest names in country music, including Dallas Smith, Brett Kissel, and Keith Urban. But on Friday night, he proved once again that he’s just as captivating as a performer in his own right, much like he did when he last graced the Caesars Windsor stage supporting his friend Kissel last year.

This time around, Olsen treated the audience to a mix of his own hits and songs he’s written for others, each one showcasing his incredible storytelling ability and musical prowess. One of the highlights of his set was the massive hit “Blue Ain’t Your Color,” which was originally written for Olsen’s debut album. However, when that album failed to get released, he graciously gave the song to Keith Urban, who turned it into a chart-topping sensation.

From upbeat, foot-stomping numbers that had the crowd dancing along to heartfelt ballads that showcased his emotional depth, Olsen demonstrated his versatility as an artist. His engaging stage presence and genuine connection with the audience made it clear why he’s so highly regarded in the country music community.

Kelsi Mayne

Starting off the evening was Windsor’s rising country star, Kelsi Mayne. She took the stage with an infectious energy and a setlist that showcased her impressive range as an artist. Mayne performed a mix of original songs and covers, including a standout version of Aerosmith’s “Cryin'” that had the crowd cheering. Joined by two musicians for the acoustic set, a guitarist and percussionist playing a cajón, it felt intimate and riveting. The highlight of Mayne’s set was her latest single, “Surrender,” which she dedicated to her grandmother who had passed away just the day before. Despite the personal tragedy, Mayne delivered a stunning and emotional performance that left many in the crowd wiping away tears, a testament to her strength as a person and her talent as a musician.
