He topped the charts with the title track, “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” and “Goodnight Kiss” (also his first No. 1 as a songwriter) and earned critical acclaim for his powerful delivery of the Top 5 smash and CMA Song of the Year nominated "Like A Cowboy." Houser added a fourth No. 1 to his catalogue with “We Went” from his latest album, Fired Up, and has been tapped to perform at several major country music festivals in 2017.

artistAnd Holloway Road - The UK Duo have spent the last two years playing throughout the UK & Europe, honing their live show, and as a result they understand the importance of being both a standout name on any lineup and a high energy crowd-pleaser. Their sound sits somewhere between the country-pop chart and the Nashville song-writing they both grew up listening to.  Both of their EPs have landed in the iTunes country top ten thanks to radio play across the UK for their singles ‘Little Harder, 'Where We Are Tonight', and 'If She Falls' - which has now been added to Spotify UK's Very Nearly Nashville playlist.
