After winning over the hearts of millions on American Idol, 17-year-old Alex Miller is ready to embark on the next chapter of his country music career with the release of his single,
“I’m Over You So Get Over Me.”
The Kentucky native originally auditioned for Idol with track and earned praise from Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan. Now, he’s released the studio version of the self-penned song, which he wrote for an ex-girlfriend.
“‘I’m over You so Get over Me’ is a song that’s been years in the making,” Miller shared in a statement. “I first sang this song at a Middle School talent show and most recently performed it at my American Idol audition. I hope you enjoy it more than the ex it was written about!”
Produced by Jeff Lyman, “I’m Over You So Get Over Me” puts Miller’s classic country pipes on full display and futher proves he’s more than ready to make his long-awaited Grand Ole Opry debut.
The rising star will soon have the opportunity to step into the prestigious Opry circle, thanks to Idol judge and country superstar Luke Bryan, who surprised Miller with an invitation to perform at the Opry during Idol‘s Showstopper round.
After Miller received the unfortunate news that he would not be advancing in the competition, Bryan surprised the high schooler with the invitation of a lifetime.
“Do you remember a certain promise that I made you during your audition process?” Bryan asked Miller.
“Oh, I haven’t forgotten that,” Miller shared.
“Well, I made some calls to my good friends at the Grand Ole Opry and they agreed to let my buddy Alex Miller come perform at the Grand Ole Opry,” the “Down To One” singer revealed.
Miller was overcome with emotion.
“Oh my God,” Miller said in a state of shock. “Oh my God!”
“And maybe I’ll share the stage with you a little bit if you’ll have me,” Bryan promised.
After revealing that he once toured the Opry as a child, Miller said it would be a “full circle” moment for him.
