Randy Houser - Like A Cowboy

randyhouser-album

Born in Lake, Mississippi, Randy Houser has been on a winning streak with three consecutive #1s: “How Country Feels,” “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight,” and “Goodnight Kiss.” Randy recently released his fourth single out of his latest album, How Country Feels, and it takes on a more traditional country topic. The song is called “Like A Cowboy,” and the character is struggling with the balance of cowboy life and being with the woman he loves.

Randy co-wrote the song with Brice Long, and he says, “It was one of those days that I didn’t want to settle on writing something just to be writing a song. I wanted to wait on the right idea. Brice is a cowboy and I grew up rodeoing through high school as a cowboy. I got to thinking about our lifestyles and the lifestyle that I lived.” Will this cowboy tune become Randy’s fourth consecutive #1? You can find out by tuning into Bob Kingsley’s Country Top 40!

and a reason that song means

something extra special to you,

tell Bob a story about your request.

 

Hello Bob,

brad paisley

 

About a year and a half ago my wife Rachel and I were sitting in the doctor’s office waiting room.  We had been trying to start a family and were not having much success with it. When the doctor came in he told us that my wife had PCOS, short for poly-cyctic ovary syndrome .  He assured us that this was "fixable" and that we could still one day start a family.  But, over the course of the next few months we had no success and our dreams were fading.  This was followed by more serious medical complications, including a problem on my side.  The only options the doctor could offer would cost way into the thousands… and not covered by insurance.

That week though, we finally hit rock bottom.  I was notified at work that I was to be laid off at the end of the month.  Which leads to my request:  “Anything Like Me” by Brad Paisley.  You see the layoff never came.  A position opened up in another department and I was moved there.  A short time after that we were back at the doctor's getting the treatment we needed and in May my wife gave gave birth to a perfectly healthy baby boy and he’s all ours … Lord help us if he’s anything like me.

 

Thank you,
Greg
