Drake Milligan burst onto the national music stage last month entering the Billboard Emerging Artists Chart at #5 after dominating iTunes. The Fort Worth native charted back-to-back #1 hits on the iTunes Country Songs Chart, #1 on iTunes All-Genre Chart and reclaimed the #1 spot on iTunes Country Albums Chart, all while simultaneously holding positions #1, #2, #3 and #5 on iTunes Country Video Chart. Milligan is a student of classic Country music with the swagger of early Rock ‘n’ Roll. He’s an electrifying entertainer who is packing Country fans into clubs night after night on tour. Milligan cites George Strait and Elvis Presley – the King of Country and the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll – as musical heroes. His unique style of traditional yet timely Country has been embraced by fans, peers and the media alike.
Milligan has already earned high praise from People, USA Today, Parade, American Songwriter, CMT.com, Billboard, KTLA, Hollywood Life, Fort Worth Weekly, Sounds Like Nashville, and Taste of Country. Last night (9/14), Milligan performed a duet with Country star Jon Pardi on the Season 17 finale of NBC’s highest rated show of summer America’s Got Talent, where he placed in the Top 3. Skyrocketing to #1 on the iTunes All-Genre and Country Top Albums charts, Milligan just released his full-length debut album Dallas/Fort Worth via Stoney Creek Records, co-produced by award-winning Tony Brown and Brandon Hood. Milligan has attracted support from a who’s who of industry veterans including iconic songwriter Desmond Child, legendary promoter John Meglen and acclaimed TV/film producer Leslie Greif.
