Randy Houser’s new CD will be available Sept. 21. But between now and then, Randy is giving us all a little sample of what we can expect on the new album. Go to his web site to hear the previews. On Aug. 10, we got to hear a little of “Lowdown and Lonesome,” “They Call Me Cadillac,” and “Addicted.” On Aug. 17, Randy gave us “’A Man Like Me” and “Will I Always Be This Way”.
I’m a huge Randy Houser fan. I always have been. So sometimes it’s difficult for me to pick a favorite from new songs of his … but out of the first five on this new album, I have two. “Will I Always Be This Way,” I think is my very favorite out of the first five I’ve heard … Next, is “A Man Like Me.”
Between now and the release date on Sept. 21, here’s the schedule for the rest of the tracks to be previewed: Aug. 24, “Out Here in the Country,” Aug. 31, “Here With Me,” Sept. 7, “Somewhere South of Memphis,” and Sept. 14, If I Could Buy Some Time,” and “Lead Me Home.”
I was going to wait until I got to hear all of the songs before getting anything up about the new CD, but I’m really excited about this one, and I hope you guys will be, too. I can’t wait to hear more than just a short clip of “Addicted.” Randy is joined by Lee Ann Womack on this one. But, not on the short clip we got to hear when it was previewed on Aug. 10.
When you go to listen, be sure to read what Randy says about each of the songs. Check out Randy’s tour dates on his web site and MySpace. If you haven’t seen him do a live show, you won’t want to miss it. In addition to the many dates up on the list, Randy is scheduled to do the national anthem at the Titans vs. Colts game at LP Field in Nashville on Dec. 9.
I think I’ll close with the one we all think of when we hear the name Randy Houser — Here’s a YouTube of “Anything Goes.”
Talk to you all soon!
