Lance Miller

AGE: 33

HOMETOWN: Fairfield, Illinois

CURRENTLY RESIDES: Hendersonville, Tennessee

BIO: Lance comes from a musical family: his Dad worked as a professional entertainer for 15 years, and both his brother and sister play guitar and sing. Lance is a singer/songwriter who plays guitar, has been singing since he was four, has recorded his own music, and plays with his own band. He has made his living as a professional demo singer in Nashville for the past nine years, and works on his songwriting in his free time. He is originally from Illinois, but moved to Tennessee with his wife after they got married nine years ago. He had a publishing deal with EMI Music for two years that expired in 2002. His musical influences include his dad, Merle Haggard, Ronnie Milsap, and Glenn Campbell.

QUOTE: "My music is, without a doubt, traditional country. I love Merle Haggard, and have often been accused of doing too many Merle tunes in my showcases. The problem is these critics don't understand I grew up listening to my Dad sing those songs - hell, I thought they were Dad's songs for the longest time."
