Randy Houser officially returned to the airwaves with a new single becoming the No. 1 Most Added song at Country Radio this week. The single “What Whiskey Does,” released via Stoney Creek Records, is the first taste of new music from Houser and gives listeners an early hint of his hotly-anticipated forthcoming project in the form of a whiskey-drenched song that evokes all the pleasures and pains of the song’s vice.
“What Whiskey Does” delivers all of the brawn and horsepower fans have come to expect from the accomplished singer while showcasing his refreshed and stripped down sonic energy. Co-written by Houser, Keith Gattis and Hillary Lindsey (who lends her vocals to the smoky barroom track), “What Whiskey Does” radiates a homegrown, un-polished tone that illuminates Houser’s thick, wailing pipes. With bluesy guitar riffs, the southern swampy artistry of “What Whiskey Does” is a prime example of Houser’s long-awaited new music.
“It’s a stunning country vocal that feels effortless…. he’s a dead-serious storyteller. When he leans into those talents as he does during “What Whiskey Does,” he’s without comparison.” – Taste of Country
“It’s Houser’s lived-in voice – one of the best set of pipes this side of Chris Stapleton – that gives “What Whiskey Does” its tortured heart.” – Rolling Stone
“Two years is a really long time to wait for new Randy Houser music. But like that first taste of whiskey, it was worth it.” – JoJo Turnbeaugh, iHeart Media Denver
“Randy Houser is back with a brand-new single, “What Whiskey Does,” sounding better than ever.” – Pop Culture
“With stripped down music accompaniment, Randy’s voice is heard loud and clear and “What Whiskey Does” marks a welcomed return from the singer.” – One Country
After garnering millions of sales, four #1 hits, countless sold out shows, a slew of national television appearances and several award nominations, Houser opted to slow things down and set up camp in his good buddy Gattis’ studio in East Nashville to refocus on writing, playing guitar and crafting authentic music. Rolling Stone exclusively debuted a video that gives fans a glimpse into the studio where the grass roots sound was created, noting “it’s Houser’s lived-in voice – one of the best set of pipes this side of Chris Stapleton – that gives “What Whiskey Does” its tortured heart.”
