ABOUT 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. Wise beyond his years, Alex is a class-A cutup and fun-loving charmer; a bonafide torch-carrying champion of traditional Country music with an arresting voice, he’s been performing professionally since the age of seven. His career progressed steadily from shows in and around his hometown of Lancaster, Kentucky to larger markets and venues, including the Dolby Theatre, Lucas Oil Stadium, WoodSongs, Renfro Valley, and more. His expressive voice and traditional approach brought him early success and Alex was building a name for himself as the young newcomer to watch. That slow and steady approach ended with his AI audition and, while he tapped out of the show as a Top 50 finalist, he is more focused on his music than ever before. He’s traded in the methodical approach for a no-holds-barred run at the big time and is well on his way. His debut single, “I’m Over You So Get Over Me,” is already a fan favorite and receiving terrific response at radio.

ABOUT MERLIN GENE: Merlin Gene is an American country music singer-songwriter, and humorist known for his traditional country music, and adding quirky, comedy style songs in between solid country music. Heartfelt ballads are included, in between toe-tapping, dashboard thumping road songs. Novelty songs reflect Merlin’s humorous side, by allowing country music to adorn a number of funny, satire laced story songs. Pedal Steel Guitar is a necessary ingredient in each song, as well as twangy, edgy, Telecaster electric guitar. Merlin Gene continues to carry on the style and presentation of the “Hollywood movie cowboy”, while observing the longstanding tradition of the 1950’s and ’60’s Opry country singers, by wearing ornate, Embroidered and rhinestone garnished western suits. He insists on wearing a western cowboy hat, and pointed toe high heeled western cowboy boots. American made acoustic and electric guitars round out the formula, made by Martin, Fender, Gibson and Master Guitar builder, Ed Foley. https://merlingene.com/
