In 2011, Crouse signed with Show Dog-Universal Music, and began touring with Toby Keith and The Band Perry.[3] He released his debut single "If You Want Some" in February 2013.[5] It received three-and-a-half stars from Taste of Country reviewer Billy Dukes, who thought that Crouse "sings with more confidence than 20 years provides most artists".[6] The song, which he wrote with Jamie Houston and Luke Laird, debuted at number 59 on the Country Airplay charts in January 2013.[3] His album, Even the River Runs was released in August 19, 2014, and entered the Billboard 200 at No. 183, and Top Country Albums at No. 20, selling 2,000 copies.[7]
