January 23-- Headlining the 2019 Vidalia Onion Festival concert is American country music singer/songwriter, Randy Houser.

randyhouserWith an inimitable voice the New York Times describes as “wholly different, thicker and more throbbing, a caldron bubbling over,” Randy Houser racked up three consecutive No. 1 hits and more than four million in singles sales to date with his Stoney Creek Records album, How Country Feels. He topped the charts with the title track, “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” and “Goodnight Kiss” (also his first No. 1 as a songwriter) and earned critical acclaim for his powerful delivery of the Top 5 smash and CMA Song of the Year-nominated "Like A Cowboy." Houser added a fourth No.1 to his catalogue with “We Went” from his 2016 album, Fired Up.

Randy Houser’s fifth studio album, Magnolia, was just released this month and marks a new era for Houser. Listeners got their first taste of Houser’s rootsy new sound with Randy’s current single release of “What Whiskey Does,” which debuted at Country radio as #1 Most Added and Rolling Stone immediately dubbed “a classic tears-and-twang drinking song.”

Carly followed that up this past year with another hit, “Hide the Wine”.
