Houser prays for success with In God's Time
Tuesday, April 5, 2011
– Randy Houser has a new single out, In God's Time.
The record will go for ads on April 25, but is available now exclusively on iTunes through April 26.
Houser has enjoyed previous success with Boots On and Anything Goes.
Houser penned the new song with Shane Minor and David Lee Murphy. He debuted it for a live audience at the Ryman Auditorium in celebration of his ACM Nomination for New Solo Vocalist of the Year during GAC's ACM Showcase televised special. The performance resulted in a standing ovation and requests from fans to make the song available for purchase.
"I hope In God's Time will touch people for different reasons - whether it's spiritually or just personally. I think everyone has little 'miracles' in their life that happen when they least expect them - and sometimes they're what need to happen versus what we really want to happen," Houser said. "The song is about helping myself and others to realize that things happen for a reason."

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 ...
