If you like Randy Houser, and you just happen to like Waylon Jennings, you’re going to love this new CD. And it’s the the first of three volumes! This one is due out on Feb. 9, 2011 – we’ll have to wait until farther into the new year for the other two volumes. But I have a feeling it’s going to be worth the wait.
Now, here’s what it said on Randy’s MySpace blog:
Attention Randy Houser fans! Remember when Randy was in the studio with Waylon’s band to record a special version of “I’m A Ramblin’ Man”? Well, we’re pleased to let you know that song will be included in the upcoming February 8th release of a star-studded tribute compilation honoring one of the greatest Country music icons of our time – Waylon Jennings.

I do believe I’ll get that release date up on my calendar now. I would say February is a long way off, but it really isn’t. Thanksgiving this week – then just 4 weeks until Christmas. Seems the time really gets away from me these days.
I need to get moving here. I hope everyone has a great Tuesday. I’m going to answer mail tonight, I owe so many of you a reply to your mail. Keep writing though – I always look forward to your letters!
