Randall King Debuts 2 New Tracks: “Hard To Be Humble” & “The One You're Waiting On”



“KingFest” Kicks-Off Tonight at Nashville Palace; Two-Day Festival Features Tyler Booth,
Braxton Keith, Drake Milligan & Jon Stork as Support



NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Hereford, Texas native Randall King brings his Billboard-praised “sturdy baritone” to the forefront alongside a healthy dose of hubris and equal parts vulnerability on latest double-shot delivery: “The One You’re Waiting On” and “Hard To Be Humble.” 



The son of a working man, King was raised on the influences of country music greats Alan Jackson, George Strait, Keith Whitley and more; his neo-traditional style a byproduct of living life the way he often heard reflected in their lyrics. It was this same authenticity that rang out when King first heard “The One You’re Waiting On” and was instantly drawn to the longing, reflective track.
“The first time I heard this song, I had it playing in my truck and was just blown away, pretty sure I missed a turn,” King laughs. “The song is just incredible. I have sung along to it so many times runnin’ down the highway. I have always loved it and you can hear my passion for this song reflected in my vocals. I’m beyond excited to have this one out there.”
On the other hand, where “The One You’re Waiting On” hangs on King’s ability to project the anguish of love slipping away, “Hard To Be Humble,” also out today, balances as an upbeat, cheeky brag. With his head held high, King sings:
        No I can’t help talk about you
        Walk a little taller in my old boots
        Never liked showing off what I got
        But look at you baby, how could I not
        Ain’t anybody else that I wanna be
        When every guy in here wants to be me
        Walking in with you on my arm

        Lovin’ you’s easy, but girl it’s so hard
        To be humble
“We were pitched ‘Hard To Be Humble’ by my buddy Jake Gear (produces Hailey Whitters), and the email had gotten lost in the mess of what my inbox is. Two days before we went in to cut I just happened to be going back through my old emails and found this song sittin’ there, put it on, and went ‘Whoa… how was this song missed?!’ We cut this catchy fun love song and boy I got to tell ya, I’m sure glad I double checked my Gmail that day!”
As he continues to tease new music, King is set to kick off “KingFest” at the Nashville Palace tonight for the first of two back-to-back shows in Music City. The two-day branded festival event features support from Tyler Booth, Braxton Keith, Drake Milligan and Jon Stork. 

Already known for his road warrior diet of over 150 dates each year touring across the United States, King continues his trek internationally next month with 11 European tour stops. With five of the shows already sold-out, the overseas dates have been met with fan enthusiasm, leading King to set his sights on larger venues to meet the demand. Once he returns from the European run, King will join as direct support on select dates of Jon Pardi’s Mr. Saturday Night World Tour.

About Randall King:
One of country’s new crop of modern traditionalists, Warner Music Nashville artist Randall King grew up on the endless plains of West Texas – and his sound is steeped in their timeless beauty with a mix of grit and grace. He grew up singing in the back of a ‘93 Chevy Suburban, mimicking the pure-country vocals of stars like Keith Whitley, George Strait, Alan Jackson and John Anderson and over the years became drawn to the electrifying energy of modern stars like Eric Church, Dierks Bentley and Jason Aldean. After years of hustling and a road-warrior’s diet of 150 shows each year, King produced and released the defiant 2016 EP, Another Bullet, then followed up with a 2018 self-titled album. Now, King is bringing an organic, timeless sound to the mainstream with his major label debut album Shot Glass. The 11-song collection, seven of which were co-written by King, centers around a night out at a bar, with each track representing a different point of view of those in the room. The album was named to Whiskey Riff’s Top 40 Country Albums of 2022 and Billboard’s All Genre 50 Best Albums of 2022 (So Far), making him the only male country artist to make the list. With over 200+ million career streams to his name, the 2023 Music Mayhem Magazine and 2022 Pandora and Country Now Country Artist to Watch is looking to the anywhere-and-everywhere future with music that captures the essence of a Western poet who’s never been afraid to be himself.
