“King of the Road”: A Roger Miller Tribute Album To Be Excited For

A lot of tribute albums are circling now, from Johnny Cash to Elton John. Roger Miller is probably one of those artists that do not seem to get a proper due for his remarkable career in the country music industry. He has accumulated over thirty-five years of service to music. He is a genuine wordsmith and witty teacher. You would find it hard to look for someone to say something bad about Roger Miller, even if one does not like country music. From kids to old folks, Roger Miller can make just about everyone smiles, and his prodigy has exposed himself to be just as compelling now than he was when he was alive. A “King of the Road”, indeed!

The Announcement

On June 20, an announcement came out about a huge tribute album devoted to the King of the Road. The upcoming album King Of The Road: A Tribute to Roger Miller” will be making its way to music lovers. Some tribute records may make you think twice if spending your time and money is worth it, but this one is a sure pick! Collecting the songs you previously know not sung by the original artist, this one would have a little something exceptional in the formula.

What to Expect in “King Of The Road: A Tribute to Roger Miller”

The thirty tracks of King Of The Road: A Tribute to Roger Miller will be released on the 31st of August. Roger Miller’s son, Dean Miller, is the producer of the project. In addition, he got a big help from Colby Barnum Wright of Wright of Center Music. All of our favorite Roger Miller songs like “Chug-A-Lug,” “Dang Me,” “Husbands and Wives,” and other more murky ones will be included in the album. Most of our favorite country artists will contribute to the album. The list includes Jamey Johnson, Kacey Musgraves, Dwight Yoakam, Rodney Crowell, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, among others. Other contributors are also outside the country land such as Toad The Wet Sprocket.

Roger Miller’s influence on music was huge. However ridiculous his songs were, Miller was able to land twenty-one Top twenty singles in his career, including two that went Top one. He also collected eleven Grammy Awards. His son, Dean Miller, the producer for the project, had one thing to say about his father,

 “I think my dad was always under-appreciated. When you’re funny, sometimes people take you less seriously, but those songs are harder to craft. People within the industry, or people who know the craft of songwriting, understand the level he was working on. But I’m not sure everybody understands the impact he had.”

Listen once again to this playful “King of The Road” performance of Roger Miller.
