Rural Rhythm Records has released a first single from Uneven Road, due September 11 from singer/songwriter Mark Houser.
Mark has been writing long enough to have more than 80 cuts by artists in the bluegrass, country, pop and Christian markets. Three of his songs have been recorded by Carrie Hassler (Hard Rain, Tell Me Like A Man, Seven Miles From Wichita), and by country artists as diverse as Rodney Atkins, Jack Greene, David Adam Brynes, Arlo Gilliam, and Addison Johnson. He’s also written for Australian pop-rockers Little River Band, whose guitarist Rich Herring co-produced the new album with Houser.
The single is one Mark wrote with Hassler and Arlo Gilliam, called River of Regret. It’s available to radio now via Airplay Direct, and Rural Rhythm’s latest Fresh Cuts & Key Tracks CD. Houser is on guitar and lead vocal, with Cody Kilby on banjo, Andy Leftwich on mandolin and fiddle, Barry Bales on bass and Scotty Sanders on resonator guitar. Harmony vocals on the track are provided by Paul Brewster and Dawn Sears.
