There’s one thing for certain, and that’s Randy Houser is one of the most criminally underrated artists in mainstream country music right now.
His 2019 Magnolia album was one of the best of the year, and some of his best work to date. How in the world it didn’t get more recognition than it did, I’ll never understand.
It’s been a few years since we’ve gotten new music from the Mississippi native, however, that officially changed today when Randy dropped a brand new single titled “Note To Self.”
The song is all about self-reminders of things he needs to stay true to in life, things that start off simple, and progressively get deeper and deeper.
You can see it in the lyrics:
Note to self A truck only goes so far on half a tank That credit card ain’t money in the bank If it don’t sound like a good idea, it probably ain’t
Note to self You can’t change a way she’s gonna change her mind She might love you, but she won’t like you all the time ‘Stead of taking her for granted take her somewhere nice Note to self
Love ain’t diamond rings Bigger don’t always mean better The grass ain’t always green Money don’t grow on trees ever Can’t make somebody be made for you God ain’t gonna do the praying for you Whiskey’s best left up there on a shelf Note to self
Houser weighed in on the song:
“We spent a lot of time writing over the last couple of years, and this is one of the first songs that we cut. I knew it was special as it came together in the room, and it really paints a picture of the reflective mindset many of us have been in recently. I think we’ve all learned more about ourselves and the things that really matter in life.”
And it’s damn good to have new music from Randy Houser again.
