Join the conversation on Bob Kingsley's Country Top 40.
Randy Houser - Like A Cowboy
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!
If you have a request for a big hit
from the past 20 years or so (1990-Present)
and a reason that song means
something extra special to you,
tell Bob a story about your request.
My dad and his brother grew up on a small farm in Northern Michigan. My grandpa sold that farm long before I came along… but he kept the tractor that my dad and uncle grew up using. It is that same tractor that started a love of collecting and restoring old international harvesters. My grandpa and my uncle have both passed away now, but my dad and I both love taking our various tractors to shows, and remembering days gone by.
Please play Craig Morgan’s, “International Harvester”. Every time I hear that song, I am reminded of my grandpa and uncle and all the times we spent together on our international harvester. Thanks!
