Flanked by the three songwriters who concocted it, Randy Houser celebrated
his first No. 1 single — “How Country Feels” — Monday
afternoon (March 11) at the Honky Tonk Central nightclub in downtown Nashville.
The song’s writers are Wendell Mobley
and Vicky McGehee, represented by BMI, and Neil Thrasher, affiliated with ASCAP. BMI and ASCAP are the performance rights
organizations that staged the celebration.
