Hello Everyone! I am very excited that today Write Indie: Musings Of A Writers Geek is host to the very talented, young Country Artist Josey Milner as part of Maverick Promotions virtual tour!
On Tour July 28th-August 01st
Country Music Artist and Anti-bullying Spokesperson
Josey Milner is part small town teen, part road-worthy country starlet, and at only 17 years old, she turned heads and changed hearts with her debut US single, “Not Pretty Enough.” The song thrust Josey into the country music spotlight, launching her anti-bullying campaign with Angels and Doves, earning her a 2013 Independent Country Music Award nomination for Promising Young Artist, a Top 10 Hottest New Artist designation, and a Number One single on the world’s first independent country music chart, Indie World. Now, 18 and a recent Magna Cum Laude high school graduate, Josey is taking her initial successes to greater heights with “Cowgirls.”
“Cowgirls” was recorded at Awestruck Studios with her “Not Pretty Enough” production team of Micah Burdick and Matthew Russo (Hall and Oates.) Mastering engineer, Larry Gann (John Rich, Elton John) also played drums on the track, with Jimmy Mattingly (Dolly Parton, Reba, Garth) on fiddle and Smith Curry (Jason Aldean, Randy Travis) on pedal steel. The single was released to country radio in November, and it reached #1 on the New Music Weekly country charts and Top 75 on Music Row! “Cowgirls” is a boot-kicking, foot stomping dance anthem that had country radio fans singing along with this down-home darling…
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 Josey to hang up her spurs and follow her dreams of country music fame.
After a main-stage performance at the 2010 Pedal Steel Convention in St. Louis, Josey followed the advice of her much older and wiser musical elders: Form a band and play everywhere you can. The Josey Milner Band became one of the most sought-after live acts in the Kansas City area. Performing an ever-evolving and versatile mix of new country, classic country, country rock, and a little bit of Rock & Roll, Josey led the band through raucous sets at Buffalo Bill Days, Slater Fall Festival, Holden Street Fair, Timbercreek, The Landing, and numerous others, performing for sold-out crowds and claiming the title of “Kansas City’s Princess of Country Music.”
More recently, Josey has also opened standing room only shows for American Idol, Scotty McCreery, Chris Cagle, and Jon Wolfe. She has performed at CMA Fest and the Hard Rock Café in Nashville, The Teddy Bear Festival for children’s charities, and the Nascar Kobalt 400 in Las Vegas, for Welcome Home Troops. In November 2013, she performed for the International Music and Entertainment Association Awards, for which she was nominated in three categories: Best Country Female, Best Country Single, and Country Entertainer of the Year. She was also nominated for Shooting Star at the Nashville Universe Awards and Best Female and Artist of the Year at the Midwest Music Awards.
With international airplay, charting, live performances and awards, and even a Facebook game using her image (A Better World) and a celebrity endorsement with Piaseci MD skincare, Josey is poised for world-wide stardom. One thing is for certain, wherever her music may take her, she will always remain the small-town girl with the rodeo spurs still hanging on her wall.

About The Music
This single is about a "country" girl who has had a long week and now that it is Friday, there isn't anything that can keep her from going out and cutting loose. The fiddle has a strong lead in regards to the instruments,but Josey shines the brightest in every aspect. It is always great to get new music from this young lady. She has everything it takes to make it big in Nashville and hopefully they will take notice soon.
