LEE THOMAS MILLER

Songwriter of “The Impossible,” “The World,” “I'm Still a Guy," and "It Ain't My Fault"

Miller left his hometown to attend Eastern Kentucky University and graduated in 1990. After graduation, he moved to Nashville, Tennessee, 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 with "In Color".

His credits include 7 number one country hits: "The Impossible" (Joe Nichols), "The World", "I'm Still a Guy" and "Perfect Storm"- all by Brad Paisley, "You're Gonna Miss This" for Trace Adkins, "I Just Wanna Be Mad" by Terri Clark and "Southern Girl" (Tim McGraw). Three of his songs — "You're Gonna Miss This", "The Impossible" and "In Color" by Jamey Johnson — were nominated for Best Country Song at the Grammy Awards. Miller also co-wrote "Whiskey and You," with Chris Stapleton. The song appears on Stapleton's album "Traveller".
