Randy Houser is taking his new album Magnolia on tour, but country music fans will only have a limited number of opportunities to hear his new record live. Luckily, you can snag tickets to his 2019 Magnolia Tour starting Friday, June 7 here at AXS.
Houser is another of the journeyman artists who began his career writing for other singers before becoming a star himself; he's enjoying his 14th year in the industry, as his first hit was released in 2005. Magnolia reflects his decade-plus of working hard and wanting his music to connect with other people. There's a lived-in quality to the music; he's not trying to be popular or even peppy. Instead, he's going back to his pure country roots, even if it means being a little maudlin, and he sounds more vulnerable than he has ever been. That's what makes this his best album ever.
You can listen to his current single "What Whiskey Does" by playing the video above. But Magnolia is an album that deserves to be heard live, because it feels like a genuine reflection of who Randy Houser is, and that connection will only be more organic when audiences can hear him in person and see the emotions as he's performing. But just like the album isn't splashy, he's not going overboard with his tour; there are only a dozen shows currently planned, running from Oct. 24 to Dec. 13. If you want to enjoy Randy Houser at his absolute best, this is the tour to see and there are a limited number of chances to see it.
Paul Cauthen will be Houser's opening act for all 12 tour dates.
