These songs very literally changed my life,” shared Clark. “To now have the chance to say thank you by giving them a new life with some of the hottest artists in music has been one of the most soul-fulfilling experiences of my career.  We began working on these duet versions over a year ago and the time has come when I finally get to share them with all of you.”

Clark’s legacy has laid major influence for today’s hottest stars. “Better Things To Do” marks the beginning of an exciting journey through her chart-topping discography, highlighting her contributions to the genre.  

Joined on today’s release with McBryde on a fresh version of “Better Things To Do,” their mutual admiration radiates listeners’ speakers in a spotlighting performance that highlights the defining characteristics of each talent. 

With an additional kick to the honky-tonk anthem through its new-era production, the familiar melody leans into an irresistibly crisp pop of rhythm as the vocals soar individually while confidently gliding into harmony together to lock you into a full appreciation of the debut single that kick-started it all, going on to reach No. 3 at Country radio as the lead single on her RIAA certified Platinum debut album, Terri Clark.

The overwhelming feelings of nostalgia this project has brought up for me all came while standing beside some of the greatest acts in the business,” added Clark. “Hearing them sing these songs that I’ve been singing night after night for so many years has been inspiring, humbling, and surreal. The bonuses were the conversations in between recordings and getting to hear them tell me they grew up listening to my music with posters of me on their walls. They knew my songs even better than I did….it was a full-circle moment I’ll never forget.”

Instead, I hear Hank’s twang, the dulcet tones of Patsy, and am lifted by Lorretta’s voice.  It is one of the rare, truly iconic venues that has become not just a dream gig for artists of any genre – it is a goal. 
No matter who you are, when you step on the stage inside the Mother Church, you’re praying to the Gods of country music for just a little extra grace that night. The sound in the Ryman is unparalleled. We’ll have a few surprises and will be pulling out all the stops to ensure this is a night to remember for everyone – no matter if you’re on the stage or sitting in the pews under the glow of the stained glass.”

From Rowdy To Romantic, Alex Miller Makes His Mark On His New EP


MY DADDY’S DAD has dropped (April 12 Release)

Dedicated To Alex’s Late Grandfather


 

Nashville, TN (2024) – Young Country traditionalist Alex Miller’s EP, MY DADDY’S DAD, is now available.

 

Produced by Jerry Salley for Billy Jam Records, the five-song collection runs the gamut from rowdy to romantic. This is the pair’s third outing together and is notable for its musical reach and the companionable sense the two bring to the studio. The EP is now available to STREAM, is dedicated to GB Miller, Alex’s late grandfather, who passed away in 2022.

 

MY DADDY’S DAD opens with the Chesney-esque “She Makes Dirt Look Good” – a fun nod to all the 4-H and FFAers with a play on words that is bound to surprise. Fiddle and steel offer a counterpoint and keep this hooky up-tempo moving apace. “Oh, Odessa” follows, painting a picture of the classic “Western” era as it tells the story of a dust devil angel leaving home and sweetheart behind. Miller’s longing-filled tenor is the highlight of this slow dance tune. “The Last House In God’s Country,” is based on Miller’s grandparents’ farm – where he was raised on 800 heaven-sent acres of fields and fence lines. A solid mid-tempo, Miller’s love for his family and farm are obvious here. “Ain’t Ever Saying Never” reflects on missed chances at love in a punchy, groove-oriented track that posits that people can change.

The EP closes with “My Daddy’s Dad” a tune written by Alex in tribute to his late Grandpa GB Miller. “He meant so much to me,” Alex notes. “As Grandma Nana says, ‘it’s not a song about him it’s just him in a song.’ He inspired me to pursue Country music as my career,” Miller recalls. “He’d have this record blaring from his tractor’s stereo – I hope it finds its way to yours.”

 

The project features Nashville’s finest musicians: Jenee Fleenor (Fiddle), Gary Primm (Keyboards), Mike Johnson (Steel Guitar), Kerry Marx (Acoustic Guitar / tracks 1, 2, 3), Joel Key (Acoustic Guitar / tracks 4, 5), James Mitchell (Electric Guitar), Steve Brewster (Drums) and Kevin Grantt (Bass).

About Alex Miller

Fans love his engaging onstage presence, and the media loves his quick wit and humble attitude. After finding national fame as a competitor on American Idol Season 19, life totally changed for this Kentucky-born singer/songwriter.

 

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.

His debut album, MILLER TIME (Billy Jam Records, April 2022), delivered three well-received singles: “I’m Over You, So Get Over Me,” “Don’t Let The Barn Door Hit Ya” and “Through With You” (which took Alex to the Top 35 of the Billboard Indicator Chart, and reached #1 on THE COUNTRY NETWORK with its companion music video).
