Randy Houser is taking a page out of every 1800s classic western (namely Tombstone and Arizona) with his new music video "Like A Cowboy," to hit CMT on Saturday (June 28). Containing vivid cinematic imagery, the hit-maker promises to deliver a powerful performance, with acclaimed film director Dustin Rikert at the helm. Shooting took place at various locations in Tucson, Ariz., including at the Old Tuscon Studios--the locale for such films as McLintock! and Three Amigos.
“I really wanted to give [fans] as much as I could possibly give them for a music video and I feel like this song really leant itself to do something unique and special, something that looks just a little beyond where we’ve been,” Houser shares of the video, in a release on Tuesday (June 24), noting that a cast and crew of 75 people and 50 head of cattle were on staff. William Shockley of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman and Tim Murphy of Sons Of Anarchy will make cameos.
In addition to the video premiere, CMT's Hot 20 Countdown will also debut a taped performance of the song.
"Like A Cowboy" serves as the fourth radio single from his 2013 disc How Country Feels, via Stoney Creek Records. To-date, the project has spawned three chart-topping hits (the title track, "Runnin' Outta Moonlight," "Goodnight Kiss").
In support of his success, House is currently out on the road on Brad Paisley's Country Nation World Tour, as well as headlining a slew of dates himself. Find out more info and to purchase tickets right here.
Stay tuned to CMT this weekend for the full-length video, to drop June 28 at 10/9c.
