Tomorrow, Country powerhouse Randy Houser will perform his Top 40 hit, “What Whiskey Does” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! alongside famed songwriter, Hillary Lindsey, who’s vocals are featured on the single. Earlier today, Houser debuted the official music video for the song on CMT.com, which can be viewed now HERE. “What Whiskey Does” is the lead single off Houser’s critically acclaimed album Magnolia, which was released January 11th, 2019 via Stoney Creek Records/BBR Music Group. Since the record’s release, Houser’s rootsy new project has caught the eye of critics (NPR, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly) from Nashville and beyond with many folks heralding the album as “Houser at his best.”
In addition to his performance at Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Houser will also perform at The GRAMMY Museum® Mississippi Presents “A Night On The River” in Los Angeles on February 7th. Tickets can be purchased here. Houser will also release special stripped-down performances of two tracks off Magnolia – “No Stone Unturned” and “Our Hearts” – on VEVO tomorrow, February 5th.
Magnolia was heavily influenced by the blue-collar life of his native Mississippi (aka the Magnolia state) and Randy’s new season of life to become a new iteration of vintage Houser. The gritty, swampy, expressive and un-polished sound was carefully cultivated by Houser himself after spending two years in the studio, fine tuning his guitarwork and co-writing each song with some of Nashville’s top creatives like Hillary Lindsey (who has written 20 #1 hits and penned tracks for heavy hitters including Lady Gaga, Avicii, Taylor Swift, Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood and many more).
In conjunction with the album, Houser has also created a film of the same name which embodies the sentiment of the album’s lyrics and will feature several live acoustic performances by Houser himself (who also serves as executive producer for the project). Several of the videos have been released including “No Stone Unturned,” “No Good Place to Cry” and “What Whiskey Does.” See the trailer for Magnolia here. Additional details about the Mississippi-inspired film will be announced in the coming weeks.

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 Houser. Listeners got their first taste of Houser’s critically-acclaimed rootsy new project with the Top 40 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.”https://www.countryschatter.com/2019/02/tune-in-randy-houser-performs-what-whiskey-does-on-jimmy-kimmel-live-tomorrow-feb-5/Press ReleaseTV Appearance"A Night On The River","Runnin' Outt Moonlight","What Whiskey Does",Carrie Underwood,CMT.com,Goodnight Kiss,GRAMMY Museum,jimmy kimmel live,Like a Cowboy,Luke Bryan,Magnolia,Randy Houser,taylor swift,Twitter
