Josey Milner Interview
Country Music Starlet, Josey Milner burst onto the international radio airwaves with her first release in September 2012, a cover version of Miranda Lambert’s “Dead Flowers.” The debut international single from this Kansas City, MO native received airplay overseas in Belgium, Netherlands, Australia, UK, Austria, Germany, Denmark, Canada, Poland and Japan, while placing in the Top 10 of an internationally-recognized country music chart. Meanwhile, her Youtube video for another classic cover, Patsy Cline’s “Walking After Midnight” has received more than 60,000 views. With recent performances at fairs and festivals in Kansas and Missouri, including a spot on the Missouri State Fair and an opener for country star Chris Cagle, this former teen rodeo and pageant princess is poised for stardom on the international country music stage.
Growing up on a small farm in Missouri, one might say that country is Josey’s pedigree. At age 7, she began barrel racing at local rodeos, making the rodeo arena her first stage. She started singing the National Anthem at her youth rodeos, eventually graduating to performances at PRCA rodeos across Missouri and Kansas, including the American Royal in Kansas City. These anthem performances led to the decision for her to hang up her spurs and follow her dreams of country music fame.
