Alex Miller is a bonafide torch-carrying champion of traditional Country music, with an arresting voice, an infectious personality and charm to spare. This young man is going places quickly and his loyal fans are rushing to follow as he continues to carve his path forward.
Launched to global audiences during American Idol, Season 19, Alex is now happily reaping the benefits of that exposure. His first album, MILLER TIME, produced by award-winning songwriter and respected industry veteran Jerry Salley, is due for release this spring. The project’s first single, “Don’t Let The Barn Door Hit Ya,” offered fans a classic Western Swing tune. The album’s second single, “Through With You,” finds Miller exploring new territory and pushing early boundaries. The song is Country, but it’s a sad, serious song presented with emotional maturity and not the more light-hearted fare that Alex has written in the past. For a young man who was raised with the workaday rigors of a running farm and learned comportment from FFA competitions, he has the outlook and the grit needed to succeed.
