Houser supports "What Whiskey Does"

Monday, July 23, 2018 – Randy Houser dropped a new single, "What Whiskey Does," to country radio today on Stoney Creek.

The song is from a new disc expected later this year.

Co-written by Houser, Keith Gattis and Hillary Lindsey, who lends her vocals to the track, the mid-tempo song features pedal steel in a song powered by Houser's soulful vocals.

Houser recorded at Gattis' studio in East Nashville.

Houser racked up 3 consecutive number one hits and more than 4 million in singles sales to date with his Stoney Creek Records album, "How Country Feels." He topped the charts with the title track, "Runnin' Outta Moonlight" and "Goodnight Kiss" and went top five with CMA Song of the Year-nominated "Like A Cowboy." Houser added a fourth No. 1 to his catalogue with "We Went" from his latest album, "Fired Up," which came out in March 2016.

Houser, 42, also enjoyed success as a songwriter by co-writing singles including "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk" by Trace Adkins and "Back That Thing Up" by Justin Moore,

CD reviews for Randy Houser

Magnolia CD review - Magnolia
Randy Houser is no stranger to commercial success. He has had three number one hits on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. But he became fed up with how he was expected to perform them live: especially the various computerized bells and whistles that were meant to help him compete with his peers and their outsized live shows. He wanted to get back to songs that meant something and that he was invested in. Fearing blowback of not making another country radio effort, Houser was weary to »»»

A brand of neo-traditional country music has entered the mainstream scene in response to the hip hop beats of bro country and smooth EDM of metro country. Artists like Aaron Watson and Randy Houser are providing a strong alternative on the charts for fans who prefer their country closer to its roots. The challenge for a country artist today is to find a balance between the fans and their business. A small handful of writers are responsible for most of the mainstream chart toppers, resulting in a »»»
How Country Feels CD review - How Country Feels
Despite a good track record of releasing quality music, Randy Houser hasn't become a consistent chart-topper yet. His new album, "How Country Feels," has already brought him one hit song with the title track, so perhaps a change of scenery (Houser is now on Stoney Creek) was what his career needed. Houser's last album, "They Call Me Cadillac," was a bluesy, varied album that unfortunately yielded no hits. This time around, he's gone for a much simpler »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Guthrie brings welcome vibe of sweetness – Before launching into "This Land is Your Land," Arlo Guthrie recalled how his father taught him this song when he was just eight or nine. His father, however, wasn't just any father, but the father of protest folk music, Woody Guthrie. Then when Arlo's daughter, Sarah Lee Guthrie, took the stage midway through the first half of the... »»»

His parents, who moved back to the Bay State from Georgia, other family and folks he said he hadn't seen since he moved, were in the house of the small club.... »»»
