Interview with Josey Milner

Interview with Josey
Milner
Lamitschka: How was the last year for
you? What were your highlights?Josey Milner: This past year
has been truly amazing. I’ve had so many opportunities that I could
have only ever dreamed of. Some of the highlights would have to be
opening up for Scotty McCreery, playing at fairs and festivals and
meeting so many amazing people from all over the U.S. Performing
during CMA week down in Nashville was also incredible. It’s pretty
cool being able to say that I performed in Nashville. :]

Lamitschka:
What will your next single be?

Josey Milner: My next single is
one completely different than “Not Pretty Enough”. It’s
upbeat and I can really relate to it because of my rodeo background.
It’s called cowgirls, so as you can see it really ties in with rodeo.
It’s definitely a dancing song!

Lamitschka: As an artist, you
do many tasks such as recording, touring, interviews. What do you
like best, what’s your favorite activity?

Josey Milner: I like
performing the most. It’s so exciting and I love the feeling I get
knowing that all eyes are on me while I’m on stage. To be able to do
what I love and provide entertainment for others makes it that much
better.

Lamitschka: What drives you?

Josey Milner: My
family, friends and fans who continue to support be throughout this
career. If it wasn’t for them, I couldn’t have a career. Sure you can
play out and record songs, but if people don’t support you and don’t
like what you’re doing, why else would you?

Lamitschka: What’s
unique about you that will differentiate you from other
artists?

Josey Milner: What’s different about me is for one my
age, but also how I truly appreciate country music. I don’t just sing
it, I live it. Sure I love getting dolled up and performing on stage,
but I also don’t mind running through a muddy arena on a horse. I can
relate to songs which gives me that much more respect for the country
music industry.

Lamitschka: What has been your greatest
challenge in music business?

Josey Milner: The greatest
challenge has been getting people to take a chance on me, considering
my age. That’s one thing that really kind of freaks people out. I
don’t know if they think I’m too young and can’t get the job done or
what, but once I’m given the opportunity, I do what’s expected, if
not more. I just need chances! :]

Lamitschka: What moments in
your career stand out in your memory as highlights and achievements
which you are proud of?

Josey Milner: Having my music played
internationally is a BIG one. For me being a small town 17 (almost
18) year old, it’s pretty crazy to think people were listening to me
all over the world. Not only that, but being nominated for an
independent country music award was pretty amazing too. Another one
was opening up for Soctty McCreery. I’ve just had so many things that
it’s hard to narrow it down!

Lamitschka: When you get time
off, how do you like to relax?

Josey Milner: I like to sit on
the couch with a blanket, watch tv or a movie with my family and
simply relax. Sometimes I even lay in my room and read a book that
I’m really interested in. If I’m not just sitting though, I’ll
probably be playing with my corgi Opry, or out in the pasture with my
horses. If i’m inside, I might be baking a batch of cupcakes or a
cake that my dad would request. If it’s warm, swimming is always
nice. I tend to do a lot of things, just depends on my
mood.

Lamitschka: When you’re on tour, do you have time to
play tourist?

Josey Milner: Sometimes. It just depends on how
busy we are. Most of the time, we do though. My favorite time to act
like a tourist is when I’m in Nashville, TN for something. I loooove
Nashville. The whole atmosphere is awesome and the people there are
so sweet! I really enjoy being able to walk down Broadway and see all
the neon lights and hearing a different band each time I get to a new
door. I really hope I get to stay there one day! :]

Lamitschka:
Many music fans today get their information about artists online. Do
you have your own website and what will fans find there?

Josey
Milner: I do! www.joseymilner.com
[1] is my website. There, fans can see pictures, my schedule of
places I’m going to be, and listen to my music. I also have the link
to Angels and Doves which is the anti-bullying organization that I’m
associated with. Along with Angels and Doves, I have the links to all
my other social media such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube,
Reverbnation, and Instagram. I try as hard as I can to keep up with
it all and keep in contact with all my fans! :]
