Josey Milner Kansas City Country Artist Being referred to as “Kansas City's Country Princess” Josey has a strong will and determination that has led her far beyond the limits of any typical young artist. She is in the pursuit of her dream. Josey is currently in the studio working on her debut album. Her vocal style and stage presence has been compared to a cross between Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood.
Growing up on a small farm in Missouri, she has always had country living around her. Josey began barrel racing at the age of seven, and the rodeo arena became her first stage as she began singing the National Anthem at her youth rodeos. Later she performed at PRCA rodeos across Missouri and Kansas including the American Royal in Kansas City.
She has hung up her spurs to focus on her music and began singing at country music shows, local fairs, and to pretty much anyone who would listen. In 2010, she was invited to sing on the main stage at the International Steel Guitar Show in St Louis. This is where she received the advice to get her a band together and get out there and start playing. After returning home, that’s exactly what she did.
She has put together a awesome band with some of the top musicians in Kansas City. They are becoming one of the most sought after country acts in the area. They have great stage presence with a good sound that is very appealing to the audience. Primarily a country band, they have a broad variety of genres which includes, new country, classic country, country rock, and a little bit of Rock & Roll. The band features both female and male vocals, bass, lead and rhythm guitar, and drums. You will hear original songs along with top 40 hits from yesterday to today that will range from Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Dear Jane Girls, Keith Urban and many more!
