New Music Monday: Randy Houser - Man Like Me

Randy Houser - by Danny Clinch
Raised in the deep south of Mississippi, Randy Houser learned of his musical roots through family and radio. It is evident that one of his influences was Conway Twitty when it comes to his latest single, "Man Like Me."

The tune itself gets the listener swaying back and forth with their hands tapping their hips. The steel guitar filling the verses on how he is glad that God gave him a woman to love a man like him. Blend that, along with the rock edge chorus that gives a throwback sound in a honky tonk.

Houser succeeds in blending his own traits in country music with his thick as molasses southern vocals. The simplistic tune along with his vocals is easy on the ears as you drive down the road listening to the radio.

"Man Like Me" is the latest single off of Randy Houser's newest release, "They Call Me Cadillac," out in stores now. He is currently on tour with Gary Allan and Jerrod Niemann this fall. Even though they recently made a stop in Morehead, Kentucky, fans can check him out in nearby Indiana on 11/13/2010 at the Bluebird Nightclub in Bloomington.
