– Randall King released a new song, "Burns Like Her."
King, a country traditionalist from Hereford, Texas, is currently on a two-week European tour.
"Got another new one y'all! Gotta say this one is different in a great way. Had a lot of fun with my co-producer putting that edge on this one. Got the steel burnin just like her and the drank," he said.
"Country music is the people's music, and taking it to the people wherever they are is what makes this so much fun. Whenever we've got a new song, we play it for them first, and 'Burns Like Her' tipped her hat early as one we needed to get out sooner-rather-than-later."
Written by Adam James, Greylan James and Mikey Reaves, "Burns Like Her" depicts the sensation of wanting someone so much it hurts, and is the latest release off his upcoming 2024 album.
"She's a night in California
She's a cigarette and I'm the vinyl seat
She's blacktop in Arizona
And I'm hitchhiking at high noon on bare feet
"For a kid that grew up singing the late, great Keith Whitley's 'Living Like There's No Tomorrow,' if I'm gonna sing about pain, then the lyrics gotta put you right there with me. It's everything I love about country music: storytelling, visuals, a two-stepping tempo with an intro that invites you to come on in, regardless of the burn."
