Randy Houser Keeps His ‘Cadillac’ Running Smoothly
The title of Randy Houser's upcoming album, 'They Call Me Cadillac,' has special significance for the singer. Cadillac is the nickname given to him by friend and fellow songwriter Dallas Davidson. "Whenever anyone asks him why he calls me that he just says it's because I'm so smooth," says Randy. "It's kind of embarrassing, but I do like things to run real smooth."
Randy recently told The Boot that he included Lee Ann Womack on one of the songs on the new album because "she was just the only voice that I could hear singing this one little part. I don't even know if people will know it's her when they listen to the record, but I think that we have it out there enough where they can tell it's her."
But even though the song, 'Addicted,' will feature two of country music's most distinct artists, Randy admits the tune probably won't get much radio play. "The song is five minutes long, so it's not going to be a single but it is definitely one of those moments on the album. It is very cool."
Randy's new single, 'I'm All About It,' is one the singer says is a real toe-tapper. "It's a summer song, fun and uptempo, and that was its entire inspiration."
Randy performed for the first time on the main stage at LP Field during CMA Music Fest last week. In previous years, he had been a part of the entertainment at the Riverfront stages. "It's a big leap," he notes. "Kind of like reaching the top of a really tall building. It's amazing to be a part of the festival and see how all these folks come out to support the music and also me."
'They Call Me Cadillac' is scheduled for release on Sept. 14.
