After last night’s sold out Randy Houser concert, Country Music fans in San Bernardino know exactly “How Country Feels.”
Even though the show was scheduled on a weekday, fans seized the opportunity to let their hair down and lined the walls to rock out to Houser’s powerful vocals.
After Houser finished his opening song ,“Sunshine On The Line,” from his recent album, he graciously thanked the Brandin’ Iron for hosting the concert. He told the crowd that he had always wanted to play at the “B.I.” because some of his good old friends had stepped on the same stage before him. In fact, the Brandin’ Iron has hosted many concerts for big hit-makers like Taylor Swift, Hunter Hayes and Justin Moore.
Houser played for nearly two hours performing other songs from his new album like “Grown’ Younger” and “Absolutely Nothing.” He also played some of his older hits like “Here’s A Quarter” and personal renditions of classics like “Friends in Low Places,” which had the audience singing along to every word. Houser also performed the fan-favorite hit he co-wrote with Trace Adkins “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk.”
During the show he interrupted his current summer-time single, “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” to give his audience a quick sing-a-long lesson. But judging by the current success of his single his fans didn’t need a lot of help.
Randy’s set also included more heartfelt ballads such as “Anything Goes” and “Like A Cowboy,” which were just as entertaining as his more upbeat songs. “How Country Feels” and “Boots On,” which are Randy’s number one singles, were a great opportunity for him to show off his raw vocal range and his ability to harmonize.
Of course there was no shortage on drinks, which were generously passed around the stage. This helped promote the genuinely good vibe among the audience members who stayed until almost 11pm. It’s safe to say that many of them forgot about the impending duties of the coming work day. Throughout the show, Houser kept on thanking K-FROG most graciously and expressed how appreciative he was of country music radio in general.
The night ended with a surprise guest appearance by Randy’s good friend and Lit guitarist, Jeremy Popoff, who joined him with the performance of the 99′ hit “My Own Worst Enemy.”
In summary, Houser put on a rockin’ hard country concert engaging a fun-loving and enthusiastic audience. Randy’s show highlighted precisely “How Country Feels.”
