“Blake and I worked on this record a long time, and I’m really looking forward to sharing the rest of it with the folks who’ve already shown how excited they are for new music,” he shared in a statement. 

“This album came together at a time when I was reflecting on who I am and what’s important to me, envisioning the kind of future I’d like to see for myself and my family,” Houser added.

This Friday, the Mississippi native will give fans another taste of what’s to come on the album with the release of the track “Workin’ Man.”

“Workin’ Man,” penned by Houser and Randy Montana, highlights America’s blue-collar workers and the struggles they face day-to-day to support themselves and their families. Some of the lyrics include:

     Morning coffee in his steel toe boots

     Drink it up, lace ‘em up, light that fuse

     Ain’t stacking nothing but some IOU’s

     Workin’ man

     Can’t be late, can’t catch a break

     BC Powder cause everything aches

     Cold six pack, end of the day

     Workin’ man

     Singing whoa

     Whatcha gonna do

     Woman needs loving

     And the kids need shoes

     Ain’t nothing left when he pays them dues

     Workin’ man

     Whoa, where ya gonna turn

     Daddy said, “Son,better listen, better learn

     Ain’t nobody shelling out no concerns for the workin’ man”

     Yeah, I’ve seen it first-hand, buddy, just like you 

     That’s why I’m out here singing these blue-collar blues 

     For the workin’ man

The hitmaker recently released the album opener, “Still That Cowboy,” a ballad – penned by Houser, Matt Rogers and Josh Hoge – written in honor of his wife, Tatiana, as the pair are preparing to welcome their second child together. Click above to listen. 

Randy Houser will be on the road again this summer for headlining shows, festival dates, and select performances with Lynyrd Skynyrd, Cody Johnson, and Travis Tritt. For more information, click here.
