Magnolia is the fifth studio album by American country music singer Randy Houser. It was released on January 11, 2019 via Broken Bow Records' Stoney Creek imprint. The album includes the single "What Whiskey Does", a duet with Hillary Lindsey.

Content[edit]

Magnolia was originally slated for release on November 2, 2018, but Houser chose to postpone the album's release. The lead single, "What Whiskey Does", features Hillary Lindsey.[1]

Houser produced the album with singer-songwriter Keith Gattis. Of its content, he told Taste of Country that "When writing for this new project, I knew the production had to lean on songs and melodies, not a bunch of tricks and loops. That was the catalyst for the album. So, for the past two years we’ve been focused on trying to find a unique sound and trying to best serve the songs."[2]

Commercial performance[edit]

The album debuted at No. 11 on Billboard's Country Albums chart. It has sold 12,000 copies in the United States as of January 2022.[3]
