This Year's Artist is National recording Artist Randy Houser!

This Year's Artist is National recording Artist Randy Houser!

Randy has had three consecutive No. 1 hits with his album, How Country Feels, plus he earned critical acclaim for his powerful delivery of the Top 5 smash and CMA Song of the Year-nominated “Like A Cowboy.” His fourth studio album, Magnolia, marks a new era for the singer/songwriter which many have called “Houser at his best”, with the hit song “What Whiskey Does,” debuting as Country radio’s #1 Most Added Song. Randy is a big supporter of our military and was very excited to learn he would be part of Mountainfest this year.

We are excited to announce that Blanco Brown will be this year’s opening act at the 9th Salute to the Troops Tribute Concert at FMWR’s Mountainfest! Blurring the lines between country and hip-hop music, Blanco Brown is well known for his viral hit song ‘The Git Up’, which took the world by storm, is now three times platinum, and held the #1 spot on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart for 12 straight weeks.
