Monday, May 17, 2010
– Randy Houser will release his 12-track sophomore studio album, "They Call Me Cadillac," on Tuesday, Sept. 14 on Show Dog-Universal Music. The release follows his 2008 debut "Anything Goes," which had the hit Boots On,
earning him Country Aircheck's number one most played New Artist of 2009 honor.
"I put my heart into this record," said Houser. "We went into the studio with a direction in mind, conceptually, for the album, and the result is something I'm really proud of. I think people are ready to hear real country music again, and I'm one of them."
The disc's song list includes contributions from writers such as Brice Long, who also penned Houser's debut single and title track, Anything Goes, along with Mark D. Sanders contributing to the current single, I'm All About It. Womack sings the background vocals on Addicted. The album was produced by Cliff Audretch and Mark Wright.
Songs on the CD are:
1 "Lowdown and Lonesome"
2 "They Call Me Cadillac"
4 "Man Like Me"
5 "Will I Always Be This Way"
6 "Out Here In The Country"
7 "I'm All About It"
8 "Here With Me"
9 "Whistlin' Dixie"
10 "Somewhere South Of Memphis"
11 "If I Could Buy Me Some Time"
12 "Lead Me Home"
Houser will make appearances in support of the new album before joining Gary Allan on the "Get Off on the Pain" Tour commencing later this fall with Jerrod Niemann.

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 ...
