Taking a page from classic western film sagas like Tombstone and Arizona, chart-topping country star Randy Houser is bringing fans a music video for his new single, “Like A Cowboy,” that is as visually epic as Houser’s vocal performance is powerful. Acclaimed film director Dustin Rikert helmed the project, which premiered last week. Check out the clip above.
Houser spent a week shooting at multiple locations in Tucson, Ariz., including famed Old Tucson Studios, where many major western films have been shot including “Arizona,” “McLintock!,” “Three Amigos,” “Tombstone” and more. Under Rikert’s direction, a cast and crew of more than 75 people (including William Shockley of “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman” fame and Tim Murphy from “Sons of Anarchy”) and 50 head of cattle came together for the multi-day shoot, bringing the 1800’s period piece to life with “Like A Cowboy” as its soundtrack.
“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,” said Houser.
Houser is currently touring with Brad Paisley on the Country Nation World Tour and continues to perform his own headlining dates across the country.
