Randy Houser readies third album for January release
Set includes seven songs penned by Houser, and a duet with Kristy Lee Cook
Randy Houser will release his third album, “How Country Feels,” on January 22, 2013. It will be his first release since moving from Show Dog-Universal Music to his new label, Stoney Creek Records, home to Thompson Square and sister label to Broken Bow Records, where Jason Aldean records. Label mate and former “American Idol” contestant Kristy Lee Cook duets with Houser on one track.
The 15-track album includes Houser’s current top 10 hit, “How Country Feels.” It’s Houser’s second top 10 single in his career, and follows more than three years behind his first, “Boots On,” which peaked at No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart in September 2009.
Houser wrote seven of the album’s tracks, and enlisted musician Derek George to produce it. George was the first person Houser met when he moved to Nashville. “I’ve wanted to work with him since day one,” says Houser in a press release. “We just clicked, He comes from my home state of Mississippi and we share a similar creative vision that I think really shines through on this new album.”
