Randy Houser Announces ‘We Went Tour’

randy houser

Randy Houser has earned a reputation as “one of Nashville’s best voices around” (American Songwriter), but those who have experienced his show for themselves know just how powerful Houser’s voice is live, in-person. The four-time Platinum selling, three-time chart-topping CMA/ACM award nominee and his band have logged thousands of miles on the road, and this fall they will set out for Houser’s We Went Tour, playing arenas across the country accompanied by Frankie Ballard and special guest Craig Campbell.

“We’ve had a blast touring with Luke [Bryan] this summer, and it’s been an incredible opportunity to play to some people we might not have played to before,” said Houser. “We’re really looking forward to building our show this fall, playing the arenas and getting to play some new music. Frankie and Craig are both great performers, and we’re ready to get out there and show people what we’re all about!”

Fans can expect a little bit of everything on the We Went Tour, as Houser draws from a deep catalogue of songs, from fan favorites like “Boots On” and “Whistlin’ Dixie” to smash hits such as “How Country Feels,” “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” and “Like A Cowboy.” He will also perform new music from his forthcoming Stoney Creek Records album, including his current single, “We Went.” With skilled guitar-slinger Frankie Ballard — who has two No. 1 hits of his own with “Helluva Life” and “Sunshine & Whiskey” and a Top 5-and-climbing single on the charts with “Young & Crazy” — and the energetic Craig Campbell (“Outta My Head,” “Keep Them Kisses Comin’”) rounding out the bill, the We Went Tour will launch in full force in mid-November.

The first dates to be announced for the We Went Tour are as follows, with more shows and ticketing information to be revealed in the coming weeks:

Friday, Nov. 20 – The Arena – Corbin, Ky.
Saturday, Nov. 21 – Hobart Arena – Troy, Ohio
Friday, Nov. 27 – Dow Events Center – Saginaw, Mich.

Randy Houser Takes Viewers on the Run in Rollicking New Video for “We Went”

Randy Houser

Fans across the globe will want to tune in to CMT Hot 20 Countdown and CMT platforms including CMT.com and the CMT Artists App starting TODAY Saturday, August 1, as the scintillating new video for Randy Houser’s current single “We Went,” makes its weekend-long exclusive premiere. The Dustin Rikert-directed piece tells the story of the “Good Deed Bandits,” putting a Bonnie-and-Clyde-meet-Robin-Hood spin on an action-adventure chassis. Houser has garnered rave reviews for his “soulful delivery and the unrelenting arrangement” (Taste of Country) of the song, and recent live performances have inspired Billboard to proclaim “there is no reason that Houser shouldn’t receive some consideration for male vocalist of the year from the CMA and ACM. He’s simply that damn good.”

Paced by a string of vintage hot rods, the video races as fast as the song itself, which Rolling Stone Country called “a galloping road anthem,” astutely noting that “‘We Went’ finds Houser once again playing the role of a love-struck outlaw so vividly that it feels like a mini-movie. With a churning, you-and-me-against-the-world storyline and a thumping beat, Houser’s tongue-twisting tale (his delivery is the essence of rapid-fire) follows a couple of modern-day Bonnie and Clydes as they lead police on a wild chase.”

And they do just that as Houser and his love interest in the video – whom viewers first met in the seven-minute epic for his Top 5 smash, “Like A Cowboy,” also helmed by Rikert — take down a drug baron and distribute his ill-gotten gain to down-on-their-luck folks as they race around the Arizona desert. The video was shot in Tucson and the picturesque towns of Huachuca City and Sierra Vista in Cochise County earlier this summer. Veteran actor William Shockley, who also appeared in “Like A Cowboy,” lends his skills to create another colorful character in the new music video.

“We had such a blast with the ‘Like A Cowboy’ video and the production on that one was so high-quality that we wanted to do it again for this one,” said Houser. “But this time, my whole band got to be in the video and there’s a lot more action – everything from car chases to crash scenes to explosions. We just had a great time with it.”

“We Went” is the first taste of music from Houser’s forthcoming album, which will be his second for Stoney Creek Records and fourth studio album overall. Fans can hear new material like “We Went” out on the road this summer as Houser continues with Luke Bryan on the Kick the Dust Up Tour and plays select headlining shows and fair dates.
