Overview

With one of country music's most promising young careers, Randy Houser is taking a major step forward with his sophomore album, They Call Me Cadillac.

"I wanted to make a record I wanted to hear," he explains. "I put my heart into this, and the result is something I'm really proud of. I want to catch people's ears not just with a guitar hook, but with the words. I didn't want too much going on around it."

The result, recorded with Randy's own band, rather than studio musicians, is a stark and straightforward effort that does full justice to an artist heavily influenced by the classic works of idols like Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, George Jones, and Waylon Jennings.

The album covers a great deal of musical and thematic ground. Randy includes pure fun, rowdy, foot-stomping tracks like "Out Here in the Country" and "Whistlin' Dixie," but also manages to capture the ups and downs of love on other tracks, demonstrating his artistic range.

The manic and mile-a-minute declaration of "I'm All About It" contrasts sharply with the naked need of "Addicted." The poignant look at love and longing that is "Here With Me" is a great compliment to the clever, rough-edged nod to love's losers in "Lowdown and Lonesome." "Man Like Me," with its straight-ahead country approach and lyrics steeped in love and gratitude, is heavily reminiscent of the best of Don Williams and Randy Travis. Fromt the Label
