Ruston’s Jan Houck is not only an optician — she’s also fine-tuning her songwriting skills.
Houck and lifelong friend Sam Thomas, a Ruston native who now lives in Nashville, have penned a song called “Shame On You” and the pair is hoping it can make a mark on the country charts.
They’ve called on Nashville singer Sammi Moore to record a song demo.
“She has a phenomenal voice and has that grit in her voice I wanted for our song,” Houck said. “She can sound angry and hurt.”
The song is about a toxic relationship.
