-The Crew at Walmart Soundcheck
On Early Influences:
“I remember it dawning on me whenever I saw my daddy playing with other musicians that all those people were making different sounds and it was coming out of these speakers as one sound. I was probably three years old and it was a transforming experience for me.”
On Creating Music:
“I had spent twelve, thirteen years in Mississippi playing cover bands and learning how to work a crowd. But I was dead set on not playing in another cover band in Nashville. If anyone was going to know who I was in this town, I wanted them to be hearing music that I was part of creating.”
On First TV Gig:
“Before I even had a Top 40 song, I had my first single ‘Anything Goes’. I got the call that David Letterman wanted me to come on his show cause he really loved that song. Nobody knew who I was, so that was a huge moment.”
On Family Life:
“My personal life is so different now; I think that I’m a much happier person. I have a family now so I think that’s reflected in the music. It’s definitely different than the other two albums and I think it’ll be evident when you hear the record.”
On What's Next:
“We’re gonna do some dates with Miranda (Lambert) and Dierks (Bentley) and gonna be playing a lot of fairs, festivals, clubs, theaters…meanwhile, I’ll be writing and trying to make a new record.”

Runnin' Outta Moonlight
This carefree upbeat track ‘Runnin Outta Moonlight’, will be the next single to be released—highlighting Houser’s powerful voice.
Like a Cowboy
He discusses his inspiration behind the song, “I wrote this song while I was thinking about my home life and how much I’m not there, and trying to make the best of every moment I could when I was home.”
Houser delivers a nostalgic feel good gem about getting better over time, and attributes it to now having a son.
‘Boots On’ is Houser’s hit single from the previous record, ‘Anything Goes’. Heavy with rural pride he sings, “Hot headed women, cold beer/ Kick up my heels for a little while/ And do it country style.”
Houser’s versatility shines in this sincere, classic country track with lyrics like, “She loved the dreamer/ The way the lights would hit his eyes and shine just like a record made of gold.”
