Randy Houser To Release 'Magnolia' Movie In Conjunction With New Album
In conjunction with the January release of his new album, Magnolia, Randy Houser will release a feature narrative film of the same name which embodies the sentiment of the album's lyrics. The film will feature several live performances by Randy, including the lead single off the album, "What Whiskey Does," which is currently Top 40 and climbing. Magnolia, the film, is set in Randy's home state of Mississippi and follows two characters, Ana and Noah, in the midst of an intense relationship, marred by their personal lives. Randy plays a local singer at the town dive bar. He said, "Magnolia tells my story but also tells the story of running away from something while not knowing exactly what you're running to. As I got into the groove of creating this album, the story became so vivid in my mind that I realized it had to live through more than just a body of music and become a film. That's exactly what we created . . . a film about running towards your truth." Randy will host several screenings of the film for select audiences leading up to his album launch, additional details to be announced in the coming weeks. The Magnolia album is set to be released on January 11th.
