Randy Houser Loses All Belongings After Bus Fire, But Is OK
Luckily, nobody was injured when the fire broke out around 12:40PM CT, but all the gear, clothing and personal belongings of Houser's and his band and crew were lost.
After the fire was extinguished, Houser sent a message to his management team, letting them know "all are safe."
"Fire is out," Houser said following the horrific event. "Lost all my clothes. I’m pretty sad, but so thankful we all got off safely. That fire burned all through our home on wheels."
The cause of the fire is still unknown, and it has not yet been determined whether or not the bus will be able to be saved through repairs.
In happy news for the singer, Houser will release his highly-anticipated new single, 'In God's Time,' on April 18. The tune, which he co-wrote with Shane Minor and David Lee Murphy, is an inspiring song about how nobody is truly in control but God, and how in His time "miracles happen."
"'In God's Time' is kind of a healing type of a song for me," Houser tells Taste of Country. "It was something that I needed to write. I don’t think any of us can take credit for writing this song … we were just holding the pen. I think the song is something I need to hear. It’s something that helps heal me every time I hear it. In a lot of ways, I think it’s going to do the same for a lot of people."
Look for 'In God's Time' to become available for purchase through iTunes in the coming weeks.
Houser's show tonight in Isle of the Palms, S.C., will remain on schedule. A video, which Houser managed to capture on his phone of the bus fire, can be seen below.
