Lee Thomas Miller left his hometown to attend Eastern Kentucky University and graduated in 1990. After graduation, he moved to Nashville to find work as a songwriter. Ken Mellons was the first artist to record his material in 1994, but it was not until Blackhawk released “Days of America” in 2002 that Miller had a writing credit for a chart single. Another recording from 2002, “The Impossible” by Joe Nichols, was nominated for a Grammy Award a year later. Both it and Terri Clark’s 2003 single “I Just Wanna Be Mad” earned Miller BMI Million-Air awards in 2004 for receiving one million radio plays each. In addition to 3 Grammy nominations, Miller won CMA and ACM song of the year awards for “In Color” which was recorded by Jamey Johnson.
Lee has served as President of the Board of Directors for the Nashville Songwriter’s Association International (NSAI), which takes him to Washington DC often to advocate in congress on behalf of all songwriters.
Lee is an amazing songwriter performer, whether it’s in-the-round or a solo show, he skillfully delivers hit songs, fascinating stories, and is one of the best at interacting with a crowd and making them part of the experience. We’re proud to have Lee as a Songwriter City partner!
