[Editor’s Note: We are really enjoying the music from Alex Miller. Always awesome finding up-and-coming country artists who know what country music is supposed to sound like.]
[Press Release] Rising Country star Alex Miller is carving a career path forward with his new single, “Through With You,” the companion music video premiering today on Wide Open Country, and hosting duties on two episodes of Country Fix airing over the next two weeks.
The new single is outside the popular American Idol Season 19 alum’s usual comfort zone. This is a sad, serious ballad with a modern Country sound that deals with more mature themes than his previous outings. “I tried to take the advice that Luke Bryan and Katy Perry gave me on Idol and that was to reach a little bit, to see who I am as an artist and what really fits. This song is definitely a very different style for me, but at the same time it’s very true to me as it comes from a real personal experience. I hope they’ll be proud of me,” Alex notes. Miller wrote the song with his producer Jerry Salley. The single issued to radio via Play MPE yesterday and is available for purchase on all streaming platforms. “Through With You” is from Alex’s upcoming debut album due out this spring on Billy Jam Records.
The powerful companion music video features a dual cinematic approach, as acoustic video performance footage alternates with film featuring Maria Montgomery (Kentucky Basketball TV & Radio host, Ford Super Model) and Tod Lanter acting out a relationship’s end. Shot in Hendersonville, Tennessee, locations include a deserted warehouse and an upscale suburban home. From the opening scenes of an angry young woman packing her bags to her partner’s descent into an alcohol-fueled fury and depression, the acting is believable and therefore heartbreaking. Miller’s shadowed solo performance is compelling and bittersweet, and the clip, directed by videographer Steve Kinney, is sure to garner attention.
“When Steve and I put our heads together for the video concept we knew we wanted to take the opportunity to show that alcohol abuse hurts not just the abuser, but all those around them as well. Abuse breaks everything – hearts, minds and bodies,” explains Miller.
With perfect timing, Country Fix is airing two episodes hosted by Miller. “I had a blast doing these shows,” Alex admits. “And it’s always good to see what other artists are up to,” he adds. Country Fix airs on multiple television networks and stations worldwide, reaching over 100 MILLION households weekly, including: Heartland, The Family Channel, Rightnow TV, Stryk TV, Country TV and Keep It Country. Fans can catch Miller on episode #393 now through the February 20.
ABOUT ALEX: MILLER: At 18, 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 fame as a competitor on American Idol Season 19. A true, torch-carrying champion of traditional Country music, his career began at the age of seven with shows in and around his hometown of Lancaster, Kentucky before he moved 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, five State Fairs (KY, MO, NY, WA, WI), and at additional shows around the country. He has headlined his own shows, and opened for Hank Williams, Jr., Josh Turner, Lee Brice, and more. Last year, Miller was named Texas Roadhouse’s Artist of the Month (October) and performed a duet with Rhonda Vincent at the Lee Greenwood All-Star Salute.https://www.countryschatter.com/2022/02/rising-country-star-alex-miller-delivers-new-single-video-and-country-fix-episodes/New ArtistsNew ReleasesPress Release"Through With You",Alex Miller,Dolby Theater,Hank Williams,Josh Turner,Jr.,Lucas Oil Stadium,renfro valley,ryman auditorium
