Lee Brice, Randy Houser and Jerrod Niemann Live Out Lifelong Dream

lee brice

Lee Brice, Randy Houser and Jerrod Niemann took a break from their busy touring schedules last night to fulfill one of their lifelong dreams — to perform together on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry.

“The Grand Ole Opry experience last night was truly a dream come true,” said Niemann. “Lee, Randy and I are still wondering how we went from sitting in the Opry seats watching our heroes sing to being three guys up there on that Opry stage playin’ music together. We’re so lucky and so thankful!”

“It’s always great to come home to Nashville and play the Opry. It’s a huge honor and to get to share the experience with my buddies Lee and Jerrod, after all we’ve been through together, made it that much more memorable,” Houser added.
“I love the Opry. I’ve played everywhere and it’s still the only place that makes me nervous – it’s just so special,” Brice told the sold out crowd. “When I got the call to perform, I asked if I could invite Randy and Jerrod to join me, and tonight, with all of you, we’re getting to make one of our dreams come true.”

During an intimate acousitc set, Jerrod Niemann put a six-string twist on his hit, “Drink To That All Night,” and Randy Houser delivered powerful vocals on his current single, “Like A Cowboy.”

To top it off, Lee performed a tender version of “I Don’t Dance,” a song written as a wedding gift to his wife, Sara. As she watched from the wings he belted out the moving ballad to a mesmerized audience.

The song – currently at #3 and climbing the Mediabase Country chart – is the title track to Lee’s third studio album due out on Curb Records, Sept. 9th. Lee is the 16-track project’s chief producer, on which he played over 80% of the instruments, including banjo, drums and lead guitar.

Randy Houser Rides in “Like A Cowboy” with Epic New Music Video

randy houser

Taking a page from classic western film sagas like Tombstone and Arizona, chart-topping country star Randy Houser is bringing fans a music video for his new single, “Like A Cowboy,” that is as visually epic as Houser’s vocal performance is powerful. Acclaimed film director Dustin Rikert helmed the project, which will premiere exclusively on CMT and CMT.com this Saturday, June 28 at 10:00 a.m. ET / 9:00 a.m. CT.

Houser spent a week shooting at multiple locations in Tucson, Ariz., including famed Old Tucson Studios, where many major western films have been shot including Arizona, McLintock!, Three Amigos, Tombstone and more. Under Rikert’s direction, a cast and crew of more than 75 people (including William Shockley of “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman” fame and Tim Murphy from “Sons of Anarchy”) and 50 head of cattle came together for the multi-day shoot, bringing the 1800’s period piece to life with “Like A Cowboy” as its soundtrack.

“I really wanted to give [fans] as much as I could possibly give them for a music video and I feel like this song really leant itself to do something unique and special, something that looks just a little beyond where we’ve been,” said Houser.

“Like A Cowboy” is the fourth single from Houser’s Stoney Creek Records album How Country Feels, which has yielded three consecutive No. 1 smashes with the title track, “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” and “Goodnight Kiss.” Houser wrote the ballad with Brice Long and has received rave reviews for his outstanding vocals, with Country Weekly saying, “Randy Houser is one of the finest male vocalists the community has ever welcomed. The authenticity in his voice reveals itself in that he sings with the same growl and drawl with which he speaks” and Taste of Country adds, “‘Like a Cowboy’ is another vocal gem that’s both romantic and dangerous. One feels his conflicted emotions, which are a perfect fit for the ballad.”

In addition to premiering the “Like A Cowboy” video this Saturday, CMT’s Hot 20 Countdown will air a taped performance of the song as Houser and Eckrich, the makers of naturally hardwood smoked sausage and savory deli meats, show their support for military families and Operation Homefront with a rooftop celebration at the Country Music Hall of Fame® in Nashville. The new episode of Hot 20 Countdown will air at 11:00 a.m. ET / 10:00 a.m. CT on June 28th, after the video premiere.

Houser is currently touring with Brad Paisley on the Country Nation World Tour and continues to perform his own headlining dates across the country. For more information and the latest updates, visit www.RandyHouser.com
