Drake Milligan, who was new to country music when he moved from Fort Worth to Nashville, didn’t just come here to sing. He went there to listen. Milligan is an American singer and actor who is best known for playing Elvis Presley on the CMT show Sun Records and for appearing on American Idol and America’s Got Talent more recently.
At the age of 19, Milligan was already familiar with the history of country music. He listened in on co-writes and recording sessions, where songwriters taught him how to tell a story and legendary producers taught him how to use the mics and studio as a vehicle for his voice.
Experienced musicians were willing to back the new guy, and his country music heroes gave him wise advice on how to move easily from the studio to the stage, letting things snowball from there.
Now that he is 23, he has taken in all that knowledge and is ready to introduce himself to the world with the release of his first EP, Drake Milligan.
Milligan was able to get writing sessions with industry legends like Bill Anderson, Dean Dillon (Chris Stapleton, George Strait, Kenny Chesney), Monty Criswell (Josh Turner, Trace Adkins, Tanya Tucker), Marv Green, Paul Overstreet (Blake Shelton, Randy Travis, Ronnie Mils (Jon Pardi, Gary Allan, Randy Houser).
