About Randy Houser – With an inimitable voice the New York Times describes as “wholly
different, thicker and more throbbing, a caldron bubbling over,” Randy Houser racked up three
consecutive No. 1 hits and more than four million in singles sales to date with his Stoney Creek
Records album, How Country Feels. He topped the charts with the title track, “Runnin’ Outta
Moonlight” and “Goodnight Kiss” (also his first No. 1 as a songwriter) and earned critical
acclaim for his powerful delivery of the Top 5 smash and CMA Song of the Year-nominated "Like
A Cowboy." Houser added a fourth No. 1 to his catalogue with “We Went” from his 2016
album, Fired Up. Randy Houser’s fifth studio album, Magnolia (available now), is his third album
with current label home, Stoney Creek Records and marks a new era for the singer/songwriter which many have called “Houser at his best.” Listeners got their first taste of Houser’s critically-
acclaimed rootsy project with the Top 30 hit “What Whiskey Does,” which debuted at Country radio as #1 Most Added and Rolling Stone immediately dubbed “a classic tears-and-twang
drinking song.” The album which NPR claims is home to “some of the most expressive performances of his career,” also includes his current single, “No Stone Unturned,” a gypsy-
hearted traveling song that Whiskey Riff calls “the best song, from the best album of 2019.”
