Over a week ago, Randy Houser finally delivered some brand new music for the first time in nearly three years, with the moving “Note to Self.”
The song is about being appreciative of the important things in life that we tend to take for granted, and can give us all a little peace of mind about things we tend to think about way too much.
With that being said, the 46-year-old now has a music video to go along with it.
Directed by Jay Christensen and co-directed by Spencer S. Peter, the video takes you through a Nashville journey, beginning with Houser playing alone on stage at the world famous Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, and then transitioning to the Mississippi native playing with a full band on the Ryman Auditorium stage.
Houser weighed in on the process in making the video, along with the purpose of it:
“It was amazing to watch Jay go to work. He’s like a mad scientist with these drones. After seeing hisviral bowling alley video last year, we thought about taking that concept and applying it to a performance video in these historic locations.
We also wanted to spotlight a special part of Nashville, one that not everyone gets to experience. The short walk between the Ryman and Tootsie’s is a path taken by some of the most legendary performers across all genres.
It felt like a special way to honor and appreciate two of the city’s most enduring staples.”
I’d say the video perfectly sums up every inspiring country music star’s journey, playing bar to bar on Broadway in hopes of catching the eye of the right people, with ambitions of playing on the Ryman Auditorium stage, the Mother Church of country music.
