Alex Miller might still be “a work in progress,” but what a piece of work he is. Standing 6’ 6” and engaging for one so young, Alex first found national fame as a competitor on American Idol Season 19. It was a massive change for this Kentucky-born singer/songwriter – who was still working on the family’s farm when he was accepted for the show. His career began at the age of seven with shows in and around his hometown of Lancaster before moving on to larger venues, including the Dolby Theatre, Lucas Oil Stadium, Renfro Valley, and more. Since departing Idol, Alex has performed at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, multiple State Fairs, and at additional venues around the country. He has headlined his own shows and opened for Brooks & Dunn, Hank Jr., Jamey Johnson, Josh Turner, Lee Brice, Aaron Watson, Generation Radio, King Calaway, Niko Moon, and more. Alex was the Texas Roadhouse Artist of the Month (October 2021) and he performed a duet with Rhonda Vincent at the Lee Greenwood All-Star Salute the following month.
Now, with more touring, recording and more under his belt, Alex is looking forward once again. “I’m getting a chance to push some of my own boundaries,” Alex notes. “I’ve got more confidence now and I’m more open to trying new things.” Fans will hear a hint of this on Miller’s latest single, “When God Made The South,” an edgier, electric-guitar slashed ode to Mississippi mud, lazy Sundays, RC Cola, and Moon Pies. It’s still Country, but its modern radio sound feels like a natural progression for the traditionalist.
