Blessed with one of his generation’s great voices, Randy Houser is also a world-class songwriter, penning hits for artists including Trace Adkins and Justin Moore, and a seasoned entertainer known for the passion and energy he brings to every performance. His debut album, Anything Goes, introduced him as an exceptional artist, someone with both a cutting-edge sound and a deep respect for classic country. Fans, media and peers alike recognized that he possesses an artistic vision equal to his formidable talent. The strong reaction to his music was evident when David Letterman heard the album’s powerful first single, “Anything Goes,” and invited Randy to perform on the Late Show, introducing him to an even broader nationwide audience. A searing portrayal of emptiness and loss, “Anything Goes” rose quickly into the Top 20. Randy followed it with one of the rowdiest songs and coolest videos of recent years—“Boots On,” which rocketed to #2.With one of country music’s most promising young careers, Randy is taking a major step forward with his sophomore album, They Call Me Cadillac. “I wanted to make a record I wanted to hear,” he explains. “I put my heart into this, and the result is something I’m really proud of.” They Call Me Cadillac is an album that proves why Randy is among the most talented of his generation and of crucial importance to the genre.
