James House To Release Songwriters Serenade on Feb. 17

After nearly two decades in between his last album and it's predecessor, James House is wasting no time with release of his next project, Songwriters Serenade, on Feb. 17. The project has been teased by House on his Facebook wall with the hashtag, #songwritingwithsoldiers. A look at the co-songwriting credits includes many a veteran including artists like Jamey Johnson and Bill Anderson.

Says House about the Songwriting with Soldiers initiative, "I am so thrilled and honored to be involved in this wonderful cause that hits at the core of who I am; a songwriter. Darden Smith, the Founder & Creative Director and I have been friends for years and when we sat down to write the song "Me Too" for my upcoming album I realized I needed to be part of this organization.
I hope you will take a few moments and read about what they do, become as excited about it as me and my team are and find a way to support this marvelous and loving cause."

Signed as a solo artist on MCA Nashville in 1990, House recorded two albums: James House and Hard Times for an Honest Man. The former accounted for "Don't Quit Me Now," a number 25 on the country charts. After exiting MCA, he co-wrote "Ain't That Lonely Yet" for Dwight Yoakam and "In a Week or Two" by Diamond Rio, both of which peaked at number 2 on the Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart in the early 1990s. By 1994, House had signed to Epic Records. His first album for that label, Days Gone By, was released that year, producing his highest-charting single in the top 10 "This Is Me Missing You". The album's title track, while not a single, was featured in the soundtrack for the movie The Cowboy Way. House released the independent Broken Glass Twisted Steel this past April (which made That Nashville Sound's short list of best albums of the year.)
