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,

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 ...
