American Idol's Alum Alex Miller Celebrates the Joy of Family with "That's What Christmas is For"

American Idol's alum Alex Miller has released a brand new Christmas single. "That's What Christmas is For," written by producer Jerry Salley, C. Wilburn and Aaron Wilburn, celebrates the joy of family and loved ones around the Christmas time. The single is currently available at all digital outlets for streaming as well as for downloads. 

Well, it's Christmas Eve around the tree

Excitement in the air

Mama brought some apple pie for everyone to share

And that chocolate fudge sure is good I think I'll have some more

Well, I might gain weight but pass the plate

That's what Christmas is for  

Launched to global audiences during American Idol Season 19, this Kentucky-born singer/songwriter is a bonafide torch-carrying champion of traditional Country music. Miller has been performing professionally since the age of seven -progressing from shows in and around his hometown of Lancaster to larger venues, including the Dolby Theatre, Lucas Oil Stadium, Renfro Valley, and more.

Since departing Idol, Alex has performed at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium, five state Fairs (KY, MO, NY, WA, WI) and at additional shows around the country. He has headlined as well as opened shows for Hank Williams, Jr., Josh Turner, Lee Brice, and more. Alex was Texas Roadhouse's Artist of the Month in October and recently performed with Rhonda Vincent at the Lee Greenwood All-Star Salute. Miller signed with Billy Jam Records in September and his first album is due for release in early 2022. The project's first single, "Don't Let The Barn Door Hit Ya," a classic Western Swing tune, was released to Country radio in October.
