PressKK Miller - I'm OK With Me
West Virginia native K.K. Miller has been singing since she was a youngster – starting to perfect her craft at age eight. Armed with a voice and music degree, she came to Nashville, ready and willing to give the music business a whirl.
In 2011, she’s still standing, and that’s half the battle. She’s released a very strong project for her second album – one that features a mixture of covers and new songs that are guaranteed to leave you with a great impression.
Some of the highlights on the disc include “Let It Ride,” the radio-ready “Younger Every Day” and the powerful “I Wish He’d Been Drinking Whiskey,” which could be her breakout vocal performance on the album.
As far as the covers go, she scores on each. She gives a breezy sound to the Eric Heatherly masterpiece “Swimming In Champagne,” and adds just the right amount of sultriness on her take of Tanya Tucker’s “I’ll Come Back As Another Woman.”
Another cover that works – though some might not recall it – is her take on the McCarter Sisters 1980s hit “Timeless And True Love,” which gives her a nice opportunity to show what she can do vocally, and she can do it all!

Nashville, TN (August 31, 2011) – West Virginia Idol winner KK Miller, is kicking off the Mountaineers’ football season with her version of the WVU theme song “Take Me Home Country Roads.”
The up-tempo song with an a cappella intro is from the new album (I’M OK WITH ME) available to disc jockeys and programmers via Airplay Direct and to fans at iTunes.
Recording the song was a no-brainer for KK since she comes from Hundred, West Virginia and is a die-hard Mountaineer fan. “Folks outside of the Mountain State do not realize the importance of this song,” says Miller. “We always talked about recording it and decided it was time,” confirmed producer Richard E. Carpenter. With a voice as clear and pristine as the West Virginia mountain air, KK sings the song with conviction and emotion that will bring a tear to your eyes and put a smile on your face.
It’s that time of year again! “Take Me Home Country Roads!”

The Styling of KK Miller
In October 2010, I was asked to style an up-and-coming country star from Nashville, TN. The ultimate privilege. I enlisted the creative efforts of some of the most talented people I knew. In less than 24 hours after KK Miller walked off an airplane, this superstar team came together and made magic. The ensuing photographs document the defining of KK Miller. Lake Tahoe photographer, Ciprian Cojoc, shot the cover, inside and back flap of KK's soon-to-be-released CD, I'm Okay With Me. Thank you Tara Mariona, Ciprian Cojoc, Diana Leon, Blythe Anderson and Priscilla Fitzpatrick. You guys are the essence of selflessness. And to you KK Smith...girl, there is no doubt in my mind...you will knock 'em dead. You got what it takes and then some. To Richard and Debbie Carpenter, thank you for allowing me this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I am forever indebted. I see what you see.
