Randall King Admires His Lady Under The Neon Barroom Lights In Latest Release “You In A Honky Tonk”
If there’s anybody in today’s country music who’s still right at home in an old-school honky tonk, it’s Randall King.
You know the kind of place I’m talking about: The two-stepping, the fiddle and steel whining from the stage…and the ladies dancing in the neon lights.
And his latest release, “You In A Honky Tonk,” is a tribute to those lovely ladies who just look better when they’re tearing up the hardwood floor of a honky tonk under the glow of the neon lights:
“What drives me crazy
Is seeing you in a honky tonk
The way you’re slippin’ that neon on
Girl there ain’t a look you can’t pull off
But nothin’ turns me on like you
In a honky tonk”
Written by Brandon Day, John King and Matt Rogers, the sultry single is the third from Randall’s upcoming album.
New song this Friday, the 3rd off an upcoming record 😎 #youinahonkytonk

And while we don’t have a title or a release date for the new project yet, we’ve gotten a good taste of what we can expect – and I think it’s safe to say it’s going to be pretty damn good.
The first was “Record High,” a honky tonk heater about getting over a heartbreak – by getting back out to the honky tonk.
Then we got “Baby Do,” a honky-tonkin (see a trend here?) love song about finding someone who loves you despite your flaws.
I saw Randall in concert last week (in a honky tonk, of course), and while this guy is clearly ready for the big stage, you can tell that he’s really in his element when he’s in the neon lights of a honky tonk.
It was also clear that the three releases from the new album are already fan-favorites – so I’m sure that everybody’s itchin’ for the full album to come out whenever it’s released.
I know I am.
