Friday, May 6, 2022 – Randy Houser released "Still That Cowboy," an ode to his wife Tatiana as the couple prepares for their second child together, today.
"The last few years, I had more time to really reflect on what parts of my life mean the most to me," said Houser. "I'm grateful to have the opportunity to write songs and perform around the globe doing what I love, but ultimately, my family are my world."
Written by Houser, Matt Rogers and Josh Hoge, "Still That Cowboy" examines how with time comes change in a marriage – from the honeymoon, to having children, to growing old together – and hoping your partner is still happy they made the choice to build a life with you.
The release follows "Note To Self," Houser's first new music since 2019's "Magnolia." Houser also released a video for the song, directed by cinematographer Jay Christensen and co-directed by Spencer S. Peter, shot in one take entirely by a drone. Filmed in downtown Nashville, the video follows Houser performing solo from Tootsie's Orchid Lounge, across the alley and to the Ryman Auditorium where he joins his full band.
Houser wrapped his co-headlining tour with Jamey Johnson last month and will head back out this summer for headlining shows, festival dates and performances with Lynyrd Skynyrd, Cody Johnson and Travis Tritt.

He wanted to get back to songs that meant something and that he was invested in.
Fearing blowback of not making another country radio effort, Houser was weary to ...
A brand of neo-traditional country music has entered the mainstream scene in response to the hip hop beats of bro country and smooth EDM of metro country. Artists like Aaron Watson and Randy Houser are providing a strong alternative on the charts for fans who prefer their country closer to its roots. The challenge for a country artist today is to find a balance between the fans and their business. A small handful of writers are responsible for most of the mainstream chart toppers, resulting in a ...
Despite a good track record of releasing quality music, Randy Houser hasn't become a consistent chart-topper yet. His new album, "How Country Feels," has already brought him one hit song with the title track, so perhaps a change of scenery (Houser is now on Stoney Creek) was what his career needed.
Houser's last album, "They Call Me Cadillac," was a bluesy, varied album that unfortunately yielded no hits. This time around, he's gone for a much simpler ...
