Houser sends out "Note to Self"

Friday, March 11, 2022 – Randy Houser delivers the first taste of new music since 2019's "Magnolia" with the release of "Note To Self" on his new Magnolia record label.

"We spent a lot of time writing over the last couple of years, and this is one of the first songs that we cut," said Houser. "I knew it was special as it came together in the room, and it really paints a picture of the reflective mindset many of us have been in recently. I think we've all learned more about ourselves and the things that really matter in life."

Written by Houser with Ross Copperman, Casey Beathard and Bobby Pinson, and produced by Houser with Blake Chancey, "Note To Self" offers deliberate introspection, challenging the listener to reflect and consider hard truths:

Note to self
A truck only goes so far on half a tank
That credit card ain't money in the bank
If it don't sound like a good idea, it probably ain't
Note to self
You can't change a way she's gonna change her mind
She might love you, but she won't like you all the time '
Stead of taking her for granted take her somewhere nice
Note to self

Love ain't diamond rings
Bigger don't always mean better
The grass ain't always green
Money don't grow on trees ever
Can't make somebody be made for you
God ain't gonna do the praying for you
Whiskey's best left up there on a shelf
Note to self

CD reviews for Randy Houser

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 ...
