Randy Houser, 4 year old fan debut Boots On video
Monday, April 27, 2009
– For several weeks, country music fans have been watching and forwarding the YouTube video of 4-year-old Drake Dixon lip syncing Randy Houser's new single Boots On,
(currently in the Top 25). Drake's nanny captured the young performer on video when he was in his car seat in the back of her vehicle. The toddler lip syncs and plays plastic guitar.
CMT.com will premiere a video combining footage of Houser as well as footage from the original home video of Drake that was posted to youtube. (http://www.cmt.com/videos/randy-houser/376800/boots-on.jhtml?id=1610095).
Houser and others agreed Drake had to be part of the video. "When we saw the video, we knew we had to do something with it," said Fletcher Foster, URS Senior VP/GM. "We had to incorporate Drake's video somehow." Foster and video director Eric Welch came up with the idea to shoot Houser as if he is in the front seat of the car watching Drake in the back seat. Footage from the nanny's video will be cut into the footage shot of Houser to make a complete video.
At the shoot, it was discovered that both Houser and Dixon, whose father is songwriter Dillon Dixon, share the same birth date.

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 ...
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 ...
