Randy Houser was born in Lake, Mississippi. His father, a professional musician as well, performed at various local venues. Houser fronted his own band by age thirteen, and while attending East Central Community College in Decatur, Mississippi, he formed another band called 10lb. Biscuit.
By 2002, Houser moved to Nashville, Tennessee in pursuit of a songwriting career. One of his first cuts as a songwriter was "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk", which he co-wrote with Jamey Johnson and Dallas Davidson. This song was recorded by Trace Adkins on his 2005 album Songs About Me, and was a Top 5 single for him. After this song's success, Houser shifted his focus to performing, and started playing at local gigs in Nashville. He was briefly signed to MCA Nashville but did not release anything on the label.
Houser subsequently signed to Universal South Records in 2008. His first single, "Anything Goes", was released in May of that year. It was co-written by Brice Long and John Wiggins. Houser performed the song on Late Show with David Letterman in August after host David Letterman heard it on a satellite radio station. The song entered Top 40 on the Billboard country charts that same month. His debut album, also titled Anything Goes, was released in November, at which point the title track was in the Top 20 on the country charts. "Boots On" was released as the album's second single in February 2009, and became his first top ten hit in July 2009. Houser also co-wrote "Back That Thing Up", the debut single for Valory Music Group artist Justin Moore. This song peaked at #38 on Hot Country Songs in December 2008.
