Randy Houser Takes It Back To ’90s Country With New “Country Round Here Tonight”

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again a million times over.

Randy Houser is arguably the most underrated country artist in all of country music.

Sure, the guy had a few smash hits back in 2013 with songs like “How Country Feels,” and “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight,” but his 2019 Magnolia album is still one of my personal favorites to date, and it’s absolutely criminal that the project never cracked the top 10 on the Top Country Albums chart.

The Mississippi native has stayed relatively quiet over the past few years, until he began to stir a little noise this summer, releasing stellar singles like “Note To Self,” and “Still That Cowboy,” and it was inevitable that a new album was in the works.

Sure enough, he announced in June that his sixth career studio album, Note To Self, was in the works, and we’re inching closer and closer to the November 11th release date.

Co-produced by Houser and Blake Chancey, it’s easy to see that Houser is stoked about the project:

Blake 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.”

Although we still have nearly two weeks until the album drops, Houser blessed us with yet another kickass single to spin until the official release of Note To Self, titled “Country Round Here Tonight.”

Written by Houser alongside Brice Long and Jeffy Hyde, the song harkens back to the glory days of ’90s country, with a heavy dose of fiddle, pedal steel, and those beefy lead licks. An ode to the blue collar country lifestyle, it’s an anthem for working towards a good timin’ weekend.

Needless to say, the song paints the perfect picture of small-town America.
