Johnny Miller The Riverside Cowboy / Bio

Hello! My name is Johnny Miller. I’m a singer, I play acoustic guitar, and I love old classic country music! Since as far back as I can remember when I was crawling around and hadn’t quite mastered putting one foot in front of the other, I remember my daddy playing Hank Williams, Sr., George Jones, Merle Haggard, Elvis Presley, Mel Tillis, Mel Street and Leftie Frizzel. We even have some recordings where you can hear me singing as a toddler and my daddy telling me not to touch his music equipment when he would be recording at home.

Music has always been a part of my family’s life. And for as long as I can remember, I have sang, yodeled, hollered, cried & whooped it up with all my heroes.

Since arriving in Nashville, I have sang open mikes at the Blue Bird Café, The Nashville Palace, The Preston Hotel, Tootsies, numerous bars in downtown Nashville, John A’s Lounge, and the Louvin Brothers Lounge. I have also sung at some church fund raisers for pastor friends of ours, Julie & Marvin Quarles. I entered several singing contests at the Wild Horse Salon. And in 2006 my wife and I camped out over night in front of the Wild Horse Salon, and I was the 5th performer for the Nashville Star Search that day. I didn’t place but it was an interesting experience, and we had great fun!
Currently I am performing at private gigs in Nashville, and on most Saturday evenings, you can find me at the Vance Smith Grand Ole’ Hatchery in Dickson, Tennessee, and once a month on Saturday, I perform at The J Gregory Jamboree live radio show at WLIJ-AM 1580 in Bell Buckle, Tennessee.

I love the thrill of singing to a crowd and touching their hearts and their souls, like good Ol’ Hank Williams, Sr. He was the master of touching all hearts from all walks of life. I aspire to one day follow in his footsteps, and keep the magic of old classic country music alive.
