Milligan releases debut disc
Thursday, September 15, 2022
– Stoney Creek Records artist Drake Milligan is out today – a day earlier than typical in the music industry - with his debut LP "Dallas/Fort Worth." Tony Brown, former head of MCA Nashville, co-produced the set with Brandon Hood. The release comes the night after Milligan wrapped up a season on NBC's "America's Got Talent" coming in third. He sang a duet with Jon Pardi.
The disc includes Milligan's new single "Sounds Like Something I'd Do," which will be impacting country radio Monday. James Burton, who was part of Elvis Presley's band, guests on "Long Haul," while Vince Gill offers help on "Goin' Down Swingin'."
Milligan, who is more of a country traditionalist, cites George Strait and Elvis Presley as musical heroes. In fact, the Arlington, Texas native played Elvis on the CMT Television series, "Sun Records." Milligan also was on American Idol, but dropped out.
Broken Bow, of which Stoney Creek is a component, at first rejected Milligan, but ended up signing him six months later. In July 2021, Milligan released an EP through the label.
