Randy Houser's “Song Number 7” Rocks Country Radio

Courtesy: Stoney Creek Records
Still fresh from landing his fourth No. 1 with “We Went” and releasing his new album, Fired Up, Randy Houser shows no signs of slowing down as his new single, “Song Number 7,” arrives at country radio earlier this week. The catchy earworm is the second most-added song at country radio with 60 first week reporters, marking Houser's highest first week add total to date. Fans and critics have also latched on to the new single, with the New York Times noting that “Song Number 7” is “likely to be one of the best country songs of this year” and Taste of Country calling it “the finest single representative of [Houser’s] Fired Up album. It’s a big country power ballad that leans progressive, but stops short of crossing a bridge that leaves traditional country behind. Above all else, ‘Song Number 7’ is a vocal showcase.”

Written by Justin Wilson, Ben Hayslip and Chris Janson, “Song Number 7” is rooted in “a familiar country conceit: music about the power of music” (New York Times), which Houser has also nodded to in his own writing such as the deep cut “Power Of A Song” from his previous record, How Country Feels.
