Rolling Stone magazine describes Adams as having an "unerring gift for radio-friendly pop hooks". He has been nominated for several Grammy Awards; and was first nominated at the 28th Grammy Awards for Reckless and "It's Only Love" and won the Grammy and in 1992 won the award for "Best Song Written for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media". He has won numerous Junos in Canada, MTV, ASCAP, American Music and Ivor Novello awards. He has also been awarded the Order of Canada and the Order of British Columbia for contributions to popular music and philanthropic work via his own foundation, which helps improve education for people around the world.[1][2] Adams was inducted into Canada's Walk of Fame in 1998 and in April 2006, he was inducted into the Music Hall of Fame at Canada's Juno Awards.[3][4] He was nominated for his fifth Golden Globe in 2007 for songwriting on the film Bobby which was sung by Aretha Franklin and Mary J. Blige, and has been nominated three times for Academy Awards for writing music in film.

In 2002, Adams wrote and performed the songs for the DreamWorks animated film, Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron. The songs were included on the film's soundtrack. The most successful single from the soundtrack was Here I am, a British Top 5 and German Top 20 hit.

Adams had a cameo role in the 2002 Russian-language film House of Fools.

Six years after the release of On a Day Like Today, Room Service was released on September 2004. It topped the charts in Germany and peaked at number four in the UK, selling 440,000 copies in its first week in Europe. The single, "Open Road", was the most successful single from the album and peaked at number one in Canada and number twenty-one in the UK. In May 2008, the album was also released in the US but charted only at number one hundred thirty-four on the Billboard 200.

Randy Houser: “I can’t hold back,” Randy Houser says of the passion and power he delivers with every song, every album, every live show of his momentous career. “I close my eyes and sing like I’m in my bedroom and no one’s watching. I sing it like God is coming out of me.” The man speaks from experience: eight years removed from his debut album, continually adding new achievements to his impressive resume, the mammoth-voiced Houser remains pounding the pavement as hard as ever, forever hitting the stage with venom, kicking up dust, scratching out those vibrant songs and colorful albums that showcase just how far this Mississippi man has come.

“I’m a songwriter. I’ve made my living that way,” Houser explains. And while the country star has started headlining arenas in select markets across the country, toured alongside some of the biggest acts in country music and unveiled chart-busting new music with seeming ease, Houser’s passion, his drive, all boils down to the singer-songwriter’s innate ability to write and perform those spine-tingling country songs that lodge themselves in your brain. Enter Fired Up: Houser’s fourth album, due on March 11 via Stoney Creek, and arguably his most fully realized effort yet. “There’s not much edification for me these days to write a song strictly for a paycheck,” Houser explains. “When you listen to the record, you’re not just getting a bunch of hit songs; you get to learn a little bit about me, too.”

If Fired Up feels like a meticulously plotted album, born of sweat and hard work, it’s because Houser takes his craft with the utmost seriousness. Never one to release new music until it’s primed and ready, when not on the road Houser spent the past few years in and out of Nashville studios, recording batches of songs at a time, crafting a 17-track LP that details his winding course through music and life. “The songs just kept stacking up,” he says of the recording process. “The only deciding factor for me of when an album is done is when you run out of time.” Ever since releasing his groundbreaking 2013 album, How Country Feels, fans have been clamoring for new music from the man Rolling Stone Country says possesses a “monstrous country voice,” but as evidenced on the album – whether in the crisp, pounding rhythm of opening track “Back” or the hard-won wisdom spun throughout the road-warrior anthem of lead single “We Went,” which is currently in the Top 5 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart – it’s clear Houser’s patience and persistence paid off.

Carving out a name for himself as an introspective, canny songwriter, Houser continually lays bare his hard-fought journey to the top in his music. “Just like I did the day before/I gave my all and a little more/ I earned my pay and walked out that door,” Houser sings with winsome charm on the bluesy retrospective rocker “Little Bit Older.” On “Senior Year,” Houser elegantly paints a vivid portrait of small-town America, love, charm and gritty character. “It’s having the only thing you care about beside you,” he wails, a tough-as-nails troubadour unburdening himself at every turn.

“The songs that I want to write these days are the ones that are more uniquely my story,” Houser explains. “What comes out comes out. It’s almost a leap of faith every night.” Houser’s desire to connect with his audience is why so many in country music have honored the man Taste of Country dubbed “one of the top vocal talents in Nashville” and who earned a 2015 CMA Song of the Year nomination for “Like A Cowboy.”

“Whenever I walk on that stage, I go into a complete other gear,” says Houser, all hard-charging bravado, fiery energy and arena-shaking voice onstage. “I lose myself in it for awhile. It’s really just the best escape that I can have.
