Texas native Rhett Miller is perhaps best known as the frontman of the Dallas-based alt-country band Old 97’s. Formed in 1993, the Old 97’s have built a devoted following with their blend of country and power pop influences. After releasing one of the Old 97’s’ strongest albums in years with 2014’s “Most Messed Up”, Miller returned to his solo career with 2015’s critically acclaimed “The Traveler”, which featured backing from the band Black Prairie (which includes several members of the Decemberists) and a guest appearance from Peter Buck of R.E.M.
