Houser announces new disc, tour

Wednesday, August 29, 2018 – Randy Houser will release a new disc, "Magnolia," on Nov. on Stoney Creek.

"What Whiskey Does" is the first single from the disc. He released a new song, "No Stone Unturned" last Friday.

Houser also said he would go on tour this fall.

After nearly two years, Houser worked with co-producer Keith Gattis' studio to refocus on songwriting, his guitar work and working on a rootsy and raw new sound that is un-polished yet authentically Houser-the end result of this music.

"This album was a total reset for me in every way possible. With the last album, I just didn't have time to create, and it was obvious that it didn't all come from my guts. Because of that, the music just didn't feel as genuine," said Houser. "When writing for this new project, I knew the production had to lean on songs and melodies, not a bunch of tricks and loops. That was the catalyst for album. So, for the past two years we've been focused on trying to find a unique sound and trying to best serve the songs."

Tour dates are:
Oct. 12 - Porterville, CA
Oct. 18 - San Francisco
Oct. 20 - Las Cruces, NM
Oct. 25 - Mankato, MN
Oct. 26 - Milwaukee
Nov. 8 - Raleigh, NC
Nov. 9 - Atlanta
Nov. 16 - Philadelphia
Dec. 11 - Fortitude Valley QLD, AUS Australia
Dec. 13-Darlinghurst NSW, Australia
Dec. 14 - Melbourne VIC, Australia

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 ...
CD review - Fired Up 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 ...
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 ...
