Randy HWe received a press release today about an album we can already tell you is going to be great. It comes form one of our very long-time favorites, Randy Houser. We’ve been following Randy’s career since it first began.  Our local country station had Randy come out to Winged Deer Park in Johnson City, Tenn., and do a free concert for fans.  That was back when “Anything Goes” just hit country radio, and randy was busy building his fan-base. It did not take long for us to jump on board. We all headed out to see that free show in June, 2008.  Hard to believe it’s been more than 7-1/2 years ago.

As the “longtime favorite in Nashville, revered for an honest — and monstrous — country voice” (Rolling Stone Country) singer of Top 15-and-climbing single “We Went” continues to churn up the airwaves at country radio, fans and industry insiders have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of a new album from Randy Houser. On Friday, March 11, the artist who Billboard raved “just might be the best male vocalist in the business” will put an end to their wait with the release of his fourth studio album, Fired Up, as first reported this morning by Rolling Stone Country’s Ram Report. The 17-song album marks Houser’s second for Stoney Creek Records, following the critically acclaimed How Country Feels.

Fired Up also finds Houser re-teaming with Derek George, the producer of How Country Feels, which ultimately yielded three consecutive No. 1 hits (“How Country Feels,” “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” and “Goodnight Kiss”) and a Top 5 smash with the CMA-nominated “Like A Cowboy.”

“I’m very excited to finally get some new music out there,” said Houser. “Three years is a bit longer than I expected in between How Country Feels and this record, and so much has happened in that time. I wrote a handful of songs on Fired Up, but there are songs like ‘A Little Bit Older’ that I knew I had to record the moment I heard them.”
