Rising Country Star Alex Miller

Launched to global audiences during American Idol, Season 19, this Kentucky-born singer/songwriter still finds time to help his Grandpa, G.B., on the family’s cattle farm, participate in Future Farmers of America events, and sing at church when he can. His expressive voice and traditional approach to song – ala early George Strait or mid-career Haggard – brought him early success and a name for himself as the young newcomer to watch. American Idol catapulted young Alex Miller into the spotlight – and onto larger stages – and in August, the Kentucky traditionalist will open for Hank Jr at the Wisconsin State Fair and Josh Turner at the Kentucky State Fair.

Knowing the importance of 9/11 even though he was born after it happened, Alex will perform a 9/11 Tribute Concert at Paristown in Louisville to benefit national education nonprofit, Global Game Changers’, THE 9/11 LESSON. https://alexmillercountry.com/home
