Randy Houser is arguably the most underrated artist in mainstream country music.
From the Mississippi native’s gritty vocals and relatable and compelling lyrics, he’s one of the best in Nashville.
He had a few smash hits back in the 2010s with “How Country Feels” and “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight,” but his 2019 Magnolia album is still one of my all time favorites, and it truly is mind boggling how the project flew under the radar for the most part.
Although we haven’t gotten an album from Houser since, the wait will be over here in the near future, as he has his sixth studio album, Note To Self,gearing up to drop on November 11th.
He expressed his excitement for the upcoming release:
“Blake (Chancey) 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.
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.”
He’s released a few deep-cutting singles, with “Still That Cowboy” and the title-track, and the man is back at it again today, releasing his third single “Rub A Little Dirt On It.”
Written by Houser with Jeff Hyde and Ryann Tyndell, “Rub A Little Dirt On It” is filled with life lessons and memories he’s accumulated from that saying along the way.
From skinning his knee, to going through a very difficult stage in life, the one saying that keeps coming back to his mind is “Rub A Little Dirt On It.”
Judging by the first three singles, it’s easy to see that this whole album is full of deep reflection from Houser throughout his life.
