Houser unveils "Note to Self"

Thursday, June 23, 2022 – Randy Houser will release his sixth studio album, "Note To Self," on Nov. 11 via Magnolia Music Group, Houser's newly-formed label.

Houser produced along with Blake Chancey. The disc feaures 10 tracks all co-written by Houser

"Blake and I worked on this record a long time, and I'm really looking forward to sharing the rest of it with the folks who've already shown how excited they are for new music," Houser said. "This album came together at a time when I was reflecting on who I am and what's important to me, envisioning the kind of future I'd like to see for myself and my family."

House will release "Workin' Man" this Friday. The song was penned by Houser with Randy Montana, highlighting America's blue-collar workers among the struggles they face day-to-day to support themselves and their families:
Morning coffee in his steel toe boots
Drink it up, lace 'em up, light that fuse
Ain't stacking nothing but some IOU's
Workin' man

Can't be late, can't catch a break
BC Powder cause everything aches
Cold six pack, end of the day
Workin' man

Singing whoa
Whatcha gonna do
Woman needs loving
And the kids need shoes
Ain't nothing left when he pays them dues
Workin' man

Whoa, where ya gonna turn
Daddy said, "Son,better listen, better learn
Ain't nobody shelling out no concerns for the workin' man"
Yeah, I've seen it first-hand, buddy, just like you
That's why I'm out here singing these blue-collar blues
For the workin' man

Album opener and recently released "Still That Cowboy" is as an ode to Houser's wife, Tatiana, as the couple prepares for their second child together.

The track list is:
1. Still That Cowboy (Randy Houser, Matt Rogers, Josh Hoge)

CD reviews for Randy Houser

CD review - Magnolia Randy Houser is no stranger to commercial success. He has had three number one hits on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. But he became fed up with how he was expected to perform them live: especially the various computerized bells and whistles that were meant to help him compete with his peers and their outsized live shows. 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 ...
CD review - Fired Up 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 ...
CD review - How Country Feels 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 ...
