Randy Houser is arguably one of the most criminally underrated artists in mainstream country music.
Sure, the man saw a few hit singles in the early 2010s with “How Country Feels,” “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight,” “We Went” and more, but the Mississippi native flew a little under the hood. radar for a while, and it’s hard to figure out how his Magnolia 2019 the album was not at least a top 10 album on the Top Country Albums chart.
To this day, I still play that one regularly here.
That being said, I’m going to take the big, authentic Houser tunes from Magnolia on chart success any day, and I think Houser would agree.
Needless to say, it looks like Houser’s best work is still ahead of him, as he released some stellar singles with “Note to Self” and “Always That Cowboy” this year, ahead of his upcoming sixth studio album with Note to myself.
That being said, Houser announced today that the album is set to be released on November 11, the lucky double number 11/11.
He expressed his excitement for the upcoming project, the one he co-produced alongside Blake Chancey:
“Blake and I have been working on this record for a long time, and I can’t wait to share the rest with people who have already shown how excited they are for new music.
This album was born at a time when I was thinking about who I am and what is important to me, envisioning the kind of future I would like to see for myself and my family.
The 10-track album also has another single slated for release this Friday, in “Workin’ Man,” co-written by Houser and Randy Montana, which seems to be the ultimate blue-collar song anthem.
