ALEX MILLER has already secured his place in the global consciousness and in the hearts of music lovers alike with his larger-than-life personality, tireless work ethic and four high-impact singles: “I’m Over You, So Get Over Me,” “Don’t Let The Barn Door Hit Ya,” “Through With You,” and “When God Made The South.” Building on the popularity he earned during American Idol, Season 19 and embracing the lessons he learned from its superstar coaches, Miller worked hard to define his sound and take his brand of “fresh” Country, fine tune it, and broadcast it to the universe. His rich and distinctive baritone voice, songwriting skills and love of traditional and modern Country music, have allowed him to do just that and Alex has proven he is here to stay.

Miller’s rise has been swift. After his Idol exit, he quickly secured management, signed with Nashville-based Billy Jam Records, and released his well-received debut album, MILLER TIME. The disc displays the broad range of Alex’s traditional musical influences, including Swing, Bluegrass, Country, and Gospel. “It’s been a whirlwind for sure,” says the outgoing and confident, 6’ 6” Kentuckian. “I went from performing regionally to playing at the Ryman Auditorium for goodness sakes.” In addition to the Ryman, in 2021, Alex entertained at multiple State Fairs (Kentucky, Missouri, New York, Washington, Wisconsin), and he opened for Hank Jr., Josh Turner, Lee Brice, and Shenandoah.

Alex has been performing professionally since the age of seven, progressing steadily from shows in and around his hometown of Lancaster, Kentucky to larger markets, appearing at the Dolby Theatre, Lucas Oil Stadium, WoodSongs, Renfro Valley, Lincoln Jamboree and more.  His kind of Country is a style that’s easy to like – much like Alex. He’s wholesome and inspiring – with a baby face and enthusiasm to spare. And Miller is here to stay.
