Randy Houser & Eckrich Surprise Military Family with Free Groceries

Powerhouse country music vocalist Randy Houser and Eckrich® surprised James Jackson and his family with a special meet-and-greet opportunity and $1,000 in groceries prior to Houser’s performance at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Michigan on Tuesday, Feb. 10th. The show was the first stop for the 2015 leg of Luke Bryan’s That’s My Kind of Night Tour, on which Houser is direct support.

Jackson and his family were greeted by Houser’s management before the show and escorted backstage to meet the country singer who surprised the family with a gift card for $1,000 towards the purchase of groceries, courtesy of Eckrich. Houser then took the stage and wowed the crowd with a hit-filled set that included the No.1 smashes “How Country Feels,” “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” and “Goodnight Kiss” as well as his current Top 5-and-climbing single, “Like A Cowboy.”

The gift of groceries and the opportunity to meet one of country music’s most popular entertainers are part of the Eckrich “Operation Inspiration” campaign, which honors, thanks and supports military families through its partnership with Operation Homefront, a national nonprofit that provides emergency financial and other assistance to the families of service members and wounded warriors. Since last year, Houser has been helping Eckrich pay tribute to military families by hosting and honoring them at his concerts. Houser has long supported the military and their families, and has performed for service members stationed in Iraq and most recently at an Operation Homefront Village in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

“Any time I can spend some of my time with a military family is special for me,” commented Houser. “These families have sacrificed so much so I can go out and perform and do what I love. It was great to meet the Jackson family, hear their story and have them enjoy the concert courtesy of my partner, Eckrich.”

Now in its fourth year of partnership with Operation Homefront, Eckrich has donated more than $750,000 to the charity.

“Like Eckrich, Randy is a great supporter of our military families,” said Chuck Gitkin, vice president, marketing, innovation and R&D for John Morrell Food Group. “We are thankful for their service and are honored to surprise them with an exciting experience backstage with Randy Houser and $1,000 in free groceries.”

Randy Houser Surpasses 3 Million in Singles Sales with ‘How Country Feels’

Randy Houser

With an inimitable voice that the New York Times describes as “wholly different, thicker and more throbbing, a caldron bubbling over,” Randy Houser has racked up three consecutive No. 1 singles and now more than three million in singles sales with his most recent Stoney Creek Records album, How Country Feels. His current single and fourth off the album, “Like A Cowboy,” continues its steady climb up the charts as it nears the Top 5 on both Billboard and Mediabase charts this week.

A born-and-bred road warrior who performs well over 150 dates a year, Houser recently announced that he will hit the road with Luke Bryan for remaining dates on his That’s My Kind of Night Tour and will start on Bryan’s highly-anticipated Kick The Dust Up Tour in May. He will continue to play headlining dates and several major festivals throughout the year as well, including New York City’s first-ever Farmborough Festival on June 28th.

“Luke and I have been running around Nashville since before we both had record deals, and I’ve had a blast watching him accomplish what he’s accomplished; it’s been an amazing experience to see,” Houser said of joining Bryan on the road. “To be able to join him on tour and meet his fans – they’re really passionate fans, there’s lots of energy at his shows. I’ve been to a couple shows of his over the last few years and it’s so fun, and this was a tour I was just completely excited about. It’s sort of the dream tour for me, and then you throw Dustin Lynch in the mix and… you know, it’s probably going to get a little crazy. But we look forward to it and we can’t wait to see everybody out there.”
