“King of the Road” Dean Miller Version

Dean Miller guested at a show called the Country Road TV. Bill Anderson asked Miller what was the legacy his father left behind. Dean said that the greatest legacy his father left was this:

“When people hear his name peoples face light up…. I haven’t heard one person said one bad thing about him, probably because I’m in the room. But he left a legacy of joy”

After answering the question Dean performed one of his father’s greatest hit, “King of the Road.” Just like his father, he is exceptionally talented.
