This is one busy young lady. She is so busy that I had to interview her while she was getting fitted for her prom dress. Yes, I said prom dress. She is graduating from High School and this rodeo rider turned country music artist is getting ready to take Nashville by the reins and kick up some dust.
Josey is pretty as a picture and is quite the songbird. She took out a few minutes from her fitting to let me ask her a couple of questions about what comes after graduation and all the great things that are happening with her single, “Cowgirls.” My first question to Josey was where do you live?
A I live right outside of Kansas City, Missouri.
Q Do you come into Nashville?
A Oh yeah. I am there a lot and I am going to be going back there soon.
Q How old are you?
A I am eighteen.
Q So what new things do you have going on?
A Right now I am going to be attending a music awards show in Kansas City, the Midwest Music Awards and that will be on April 11th, 2014.
Q Are you graduating this year?
A I am. I am a senior this year so I will be spending a lot more time in Nashville.
Q Are you planning on moving here?
A One day yes.
Q Are you currently working on an album?
A I am working on an EP. We currently have it narrowed down pretty close to what we want to do. We are hoping for it to be released probably around the fall.
Q Okay and how many songs will there be?
A There will be six.
Q Okay, so a six pack?
Q A lot of people are doing six packs. It certainly is more cost effective.
Q And I am sure you are going to make it available on all the usual download sites, iTunes, Amazon and all of those?
A Oh yeah and on Google play. It is going to be everywhere.
Q I hear that Cowgirls is doing really good on the charts?
A Yes, it is. It is doing well on the charts.
Q I listened to it. It is really good.
A Thank you.
Q I see you have been in the rodeo?
A Yes, when I was 7 I began barrel racing at local rodeo’s. The way I started singing was I started singing the National Anthem at my Youth rodeos and from there I started singing at PRCA rodeos across Missouri and Kansas. That is how I started my singing career.
Well, we had a seamstress waiting for Miss Josey so we said our goodbyes but I know we are going to hearing from and seeing her again. You can check out Josey Milner at www.JoseyMilnerMusic.com and make sure you listen to, “Cowgirls,” while at her website.
