The "What Whiskey Does" singer is fresh from the release of his latest LP, Magnolia.

"It's sort of a huge departure from a lot of what's been the chic thing, and the trendy way to make records right now," Houser said of his latest project. "There's a lot of people that are programming a lot of the instruments, and you hear a lot of snap tracks and all those things that are more sort of like hip hop music and pop. Some of it's just bad pop."

Houser brings country music back to basics, giving Magnolia a raw and intimate feel. 

"I really wanted to make something that was real people playing instruments," Houser says. "And just do something that I'm passionate about, which is playing my guitar."

Country singer Tucker Beathard, currently headlining his Ride On Tour 2019, is scheduled to open for Houser.

Houser and Beathard will perform on Memorial Day (May 27) after a parade of more than 7,500 motorcycles travels 35-miles from Riverside to Lake Elsinore, California.

The annual procession pays tribute to the military servicemembers who have dedicated their lives and given the ultimate sacrifice.
