On the heels of releasing his most personal album to date, Magnolia, singer-songwriter Randy Houser takes on late night television. Houser took the stage at the venue on Hollywood Boulevard in California to perform for fans, as part of the Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! concert series sponsored by Mercedes-Benz, making his television debut performance of his bluesy song, “What Whiskey Does.”
Host Jimmy Kimmel eagerly introduced the singer to the audience with his record in hand, “This is his album. It’s called Magnolia. Here with the song, “What Whiskey Does,” with help from Hillary Lindsey, Randy Houser!” The camera quickly moved to showcase a beaming Houser and his four-piece band, ready to rock on stage. The entertainer was joined by fellow songwriter, Lindsey, who lent her voice to both the live performance and the recorded track.
Houser gave fans an epic rendition of his new song, showcasing his beautiful voice, as well as, his guitar skills, while Lindsey provided delicate harmonies to the already enticing track. About midway through the performance, Houser belted the lyrics, proving, once again, why he is one of the best vocalists in country music. The live studio audience immediately erupted into applause. Houser’s performance ended with some acapella notes, followed by an awesome guitar solo.
Just prior to his Kimmel performance, Houser released the official music video for “What Whiskey Does.” The video follows a potential couple, as they navigate the highs and the lows of their relationship, starting in a bar. The singer acts as the lyrical narrator to the song, as well as, makes a cameo as the bartender. The images are raw, real, and vulnerable, just like the song. Watch the full video below.
Next up for Houser, he will play some shows, fairs, and rodeos throughout the month of February. As of right now, he is not scheduled to play any shows in the New York area anytime soon, but keep checking our calendar to see if any shows are added in the future.
