Texas Country artist Randall King has been a favorite of Red Dirt fans since his first single debut in 2016. Drawing inspiration from country legends such as George Strait and Merle Haggard, King is bringing the traditional country sound back to our stereos. Randall grew up in the small town of Hereford, Texas, moving to Lubbock for college in 2009. While attending Texas Tech for a business degree, he fell in love with country music and decided to become a musician himself. Two years later, he decided to transfer to South Plains College and switched his business degree to music production. Now, for the 4th year in a row, King is taking the stage at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas. “Everything is flashy and cowboy. I just love it. We bring a party that no one is expecting! We love to take people by surprise!” Randall will be performing December 8th-10th at the NFR Buckle Ceremony at the South Point Showroom.
The acoustic show, labeled “Tonk Fest” is the start of a new brand King is working on that he plans to soon turn into a full fledged country festival. Tonk Fest will be a special night with a few special guests that King has deemed “a show you don’t want to miss with myself and some country a** SOBs!”
Randall has kept busy since the beginning of 2022 with 140 shows on his calendar for the year, but especially in March when he hit three major musical milestones within a matter of a week; King released his first full length album, Shot Glass, under his new label deal with Warner, his new record hit #1 for the country genre charts on iTunes for seven days straight, and he made his Grand Ole Opry debut. He’s got no plans of slowing down anytime soon either. The Nashville recording artist is about as straightforward as it gets. Randall states that he is who is, despite what anyone else wants. He claims that his music is the same way. The singer-songwriter pulls lyrics from “the three stages of heartbreak” and never strays from keeping his personal stories within each song.
King hints at a new “honkey tonk with attitude” of his secret 5 song EP called Honkey Tonk Bullshit that was released at NFR 2021 and is currently in the works to turn into a bigger project to come out at a later date. Honkey Tonk Bullshit is only available for purchase in person at Randall King merchandise tables during each concert. Streaming is not available.
