After visiting the top of the country singles charts twice last year with “How Country Feels” and “Running Out of Moonlight,” country artist Randy Houser is back in the No. 1 spot on the Mediabase country singles chart this week with “Goodnight Kiss.”
Written by Houser and his friends Rob Hatch and Jason Sellers, the song is the third single from Houser’s 2013 album How Country Feels, and the third in a row to reach No. 1.
“‘Goodnight Kiss’ was a song I wrote with some friends of mine, Rob Hatch and Jason Sellers, two of my great buddies,” Houser told Radio.com.
The writing session for the song happened somewhat last minute. “We [got] together the day before I actually went to record for the last time for How Country Feels. And we were just hanging out, and I decided I wanted to write something.” It was a challenge in a way, he said, to see if they could “beat something we already have.”
