Country star Randy Houser sentimentally slows things down with his latest single, “Still That Cowboy”, available everywhere now.

Immediately apparent is Randy’s trademark voice, which is still highly regarded as one of the most notably distinctive in the genre.  Written by Houser along with Matt Rogers and Josh Hoge, “Still That Cowboy” introduces the listener to his vulnerable, reflective side.  The song is an ode to his wife, Tatiana, as they prepare to welcome their second child.  It’s an honest and personal look at how a relationship can develop over time through the many events and experiences that are endured as a couple.

I pray that I’ll always be

Still that cowboy that stole your heart

Still that right one you chose form the start

And when the nights get long and the years roll by

When you wake up and you look at me

I hope I’m still that cowboy that rode up in your dreams

Earlier in his career, Houser made a name for himself as a “good old country boy” penning tunes about late night rendezvous and party anthems, all welcoming to a fun night out at a live show.  But over the years, he has continued to hone his craft as a songwriter and performer, and he has opened the door to more reflective, nostalgic subject lines.  The result is smoother melodies with a relenting focus on the lyrical impact of topics that we all hold dear, whether we are young or old, married or single, happy or sad.  His vocals remain unmatched, and has he expands his musical creativity and diversity, Houser continues to extend his reach to new fans of country music.

“Still That Cowboy” follows “Note To Self”, which was Randy’s first new music since his critically acclaimed ‘Magnolia’ from 2019.  Having wrapped up a co-headlining tour with Jamey Johnson, he now looks ahead to a busy summer of show, playing festivals and headlining gigs across the country into September.
