Houser unleashes new video
Thursday, July 30, 2015
– Randy Houser will debut his video for "We Went" on Saturday.
CMT Hot 20 Countdown and CMT platforms including CMT.com and the CMT Artists App will air the video.
The Dustin Rikert-directed piece tells the story of the "Good Deed Bandits," putting a Bonnie-and-Clyde-meet-Robin-Hood spin on an action-adventure chassis.
Paced by a string of vintage hot rods, Houser once again plays the role of a love-struck outlaw. Houser's tongue-twisting tale follows a couple of modern-day Bonnie and Clydes as they lead police on a wild chase.
Houser and his love interest in the video - whom viewers first met in the seven-minute video for his Top 5 hit, "Like A Cowboy," also helmed by Rikert - take down a drug baron and distribute his ill-gotten gain to down-on-their-luck folks as they race around the Arizona desert. The video was shot in Tucson and the towns of Huachuca City and Sierra Vista in Cochise County earlier this summer. Veteran actor William Shockley, who also appeared in "Like A Cowboy," lends his skills to create another colorful character in the new music video.
"We had such a blast with the 'Like A Cowboy' video, and the production on that one was so high-quality that we wanted to do it again for this one," said Houser. "But this time, my whole band got to be in the video and there's a lot more action - everything from car chases to crash scenes to explosions. We just had a great time with it."
The song is the first music from Houser's forthcoming album, which will be his second for Stoney Creek Records and fourth studio album overall. Houser is touring with Luke Bryan on the Kick the Dust Up Tour and plays select headlining shows and fair dates.

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 ...
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 ...
