Those positive vibes of renewal ripple through Houser’s three consecutive No. 1 hits, “How Country Feels,” “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” and “Goodnight Kiss,” which was Houser’s first No. 1 as a songwriter though he has written numerous hits for artists over the years. “How Country Feels” was his first-ever No. 1 at radio, and both it and “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” earned RIAA Platinum certifications. “Like A Cowboy” was a Top 5 smash and earned Houser rave reviews for his “pure, unencumbered vocal showcase” (Taste of Country). All four songs are from Houser’s Stoney Creek Records debut, How Country Feels, released in early 2013.
He was hailed “one of the best in Nashville” by Great American Country (GAC) and numerous other critics. He has multiple nominations for ACM and CMA Awards, a No. 2 single in the form of “Boots On,” and songwriting credits for major names such as Trace Adkins, Justin Moore and Chris Young.
The singer’s first full-length album, Anything Goes, came out later that year, followed in 2010 by They Call Me Cadillac which spawned hit “Whistlin’ Dixie,” and fan-favorite “A Man Like Me.”
Now, armed with “one of country’s biggest voices” (Rolling Stone Country) and propelled by the momentum of How Country Feels, Houser continues his story with “We Went,” a “galloping road anthem that builds on the dusty vibe of ‘Like a Cowboy’” (Rolling Stone Country). The song is just the first taste of a forthcoming album from Houser, who is eager to share music he calls “more progressive than I’ve ever done.”
