Randy Houser Explains ‘Granny Beads’

When Randy Houser goes out with his ‘boots on,’ he also sports a ‘dirty ole hat,’ a ‘crooked little grin’ and a ‘granny beaded neck’ … A what?

“When I was a kid, we always had big gardens, acres of stuff we grew out in the yard,” Randy explains to The Boot of the inspiration behind his ‘Boots On’ lyrics. “Well my grandma would always come work [in the gardens] … Granny beads are what they’re called when a grandma works the garden all day — you always see them — they have a handkerchief around their neck with a lot of dust on them, and then the sweat will go down and make these black beads of sweat and dirt around their neck. And that’s what they call granny beads.”

‘Boots On’ is the second single from Randy’s debut album, ‘Anything Goes.’ Randy gives us the cute story behind its video in our candid interview with him and buddy Jamey Johnson. Read their hilarious chat with The Boot here.
