Randy Houser

 

“People are ready for real country music again,” says Randy Houser, and there are few people in a better position to give it to them.

Blessed with one of his generation’s great voices, he is also a world-class songwriter, penning hits for artists including Trace Adkins and Justin Moore, and a seasoned entertainer known for the passion and energy he brings to every performance.

His debut album, Anything Goes, introduced him as an exceptional artist, someone with both a cutting-edge sound and a deep respect for classic country. Fans, media and peers alike recognized that he possesses an artistic vision equal to his formidable talent. The strong reaction to his music was evident when David Letterman heard the album’s powerful first single, “Anything Goes,” and invited Randy to perform on the Late Show, introducing him to an even broader nationwide audience.

A searing portrayal of emptiness and loss, “Anything Goes” rose quickly into the Top 20. Randy followed it with one of the rowdiest songs and coolest videos of recent years—“Boots On,” which rocketed to #2.

Randy was named Country Aircheck’s No. 1 New Country Artist in terms of airplay for 2009, and was a presenter and a nominee at both the ACM Awards (Video of the Year for “Boots On”) and the CMA Awards (New Artist of the Year and Music Video of the Year), as well as garnering a nomination for the 2010 CMT Music Awards’ Nationwide Insurance On Your Side Award.

It was a Top 20 hit on the Billboard country singles chart and the title track to his debut album of the same name, which also produced his first Top 10 hit, "Boots On". His second album, They Call Me Cadillac, included the number 31 single "Whistlin' Dixie". In 2012, he moved to Broken Bow Records imprint Stoney Creek. He reached Number One with "How Country Feels", the title track to his third album, and with "Runnin' Outta Moonlight" in 2013. He co-wrote the singles "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk" by Trace Adkins, "Back That Thing Up" by Justin Moore, and "My Cowboy" by country-pop artist Jessie James.
