Randy Houser ‘Chasing Down a Good Time’ tonight in TJ’s Corral
Randy Houser knows how country feels and he’s headed to the wild, wild west.
A native of Lake, Mississippi, Houser will close out the summer concert series at Carson Valley Inn’s TJ’s Corral on Thursday night. Tickets remain for the 7:30 p.m. show, starting at $59.
Nominated for a Country Music Association award in 2015 for song of the year (“Like a Cowboy”), Houser must have a fast horse. He’s headed south from a weekend appearance at the Alaska State Fair and has shows this week in Minden, Nevada, along with Mountain View, Irvine and Chula Vista, California, and Spokane, Washington. That’s a lot of saddle time for the 40-year-old cowpoke. He must be keeping his boots on.
Houser is touring in support of his “Fired Up” album, “Chasing Down a Good Time,” a hit song from the 2016 release. He has been appearing this summer with Dierks Bentley and as a solo artist.
While in Alaska, Houser took time from his busy schedule to visit the Providence Alaska Children’s Hospital. He’s a supporter of Musicians On Call, which recently reached a milestone of touching the lives of 500,000 people in hospitals.
“It doesn’t surprise me that there’s healing power in music,” the singer-songwriter said. “Music has always been very therapeutic for me.”
A songwriter even before he started performing, Houser offers a celebration of life with tunes such as “Growin’ Younger” from his 2013 album “How Country Feels.”
“Time goes by, you can’t get it back/ It’s a one-way ride, you gotta make it last…/ We drink it all up, every little sip/ Taste it on you lips, every single drop of life/ We’re gonna live this never-ending summer/ We’re just growin’ younger…
