When sat down with Randy Houser after the release of his new single “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight,” he knew the song had something special.

“I love it, and I think it’s maybe going to be even a bigger song than ‘How Country Feels,'” he told

It turns out Houser was right. The second single off his album How Country Feels, “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” is now also his second No. 1 single off the record. It follows the title track “How Country Feels,” which reached No. 1 earlier this year.

Of “Moonlight,” which was penned by Ashley Gorley, Kelley Lovelace, and current ACM Songwriter of the Year Dallas Davidson, Houser said the track instantly grabs listeners.

“It’s the first song on the album, and it grabs you from the very start,” he said. “I’ve had people actually say, ‘You know, I’ve had this album for a week now and I haven’t gotten past the first song.’ They love that song and I do, too.”

The second single from his album How Country Feels, which he just released this past January, Houser called “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” a fun track, he explained why it was important to convey this to country fans.

“Everywhere you turn, there is something to depress you going on,” he said. “A lot of people lean on music to lift their spirits. That’s what the power of a song does,” he said. “I look to songs like that right now to uplift me, and I think that’s what other people are doing.”
