Dub Miller was raised on a ranch in Pontotoc, Texas where he had very little contact with other children until he began kindergarten in Llano, Texas. As one might expect, he developed more of his imagination than his social skills which contributed to his introspective, if somewhat socially retarded nature. He also became very good at shooting things as a .22 was his primary companion through his formative years. The other companions of his youth were largely made up of a certain class of Mexican immigrant who would commonly seek work in and around the farms and ranches of the Texas Hill Country. As a result, he is sympathetic to their plight. He has also had a couple of good horses, and worked lots of mixed cattle and angora goats. He hates chickens. He attended Llano High School where the suffered 5 broken arms and played drums in a regional but quite groundbreaking heavy metal band called The Zone. He had a double bass pedal and lots of toms of which he took the bottom heads off. He thought Lars Ulrich hung the moon. After graduating from High School, he ran off from the ranch to achieve fame and riches as an FM disc jockey in Amarillo, Texas. He quickly figured out that people in radio achieve very little fame and almost no riches. He applied to and subsequently attended Texas A&M University where he joined the Corps and pretty much majored in playing 42 at the Dixie Chicken. Between domino games he managed to form a band, record a CD, and develop the misguided impression that a career in music would be fun, lucrative, and easy. Having already developed the habit of running off to the far corners of Texas no matter how dismal they may be; he found himself at the acclaimed country & bluegrass program at South Plains College. Unfortunately, he also found himself in Levelland, Texas. See James McMurtry for an accurate description. Having nothing better to do, he drank lots of beer, played even more guitar, and met his brothers. Namely Matt Skinner and Adam Odor who presently enjoy the fame and riches Dub so longed for during his stint as the king of panhandle classic rock. Along with others including but not limited to Jeremy Watkins, Les Lawless, Calib Bruce, Josh Hamilton, a couple of chicks who lived with the band for a while and one dead rattlesnake they moved to San Marcos to seek the previously mentioned but still elusive fame and riches. Shortly thereafter, Dub met Doug Moreland and Brady Black and still wonders why he makes friends with fiddle players. From 1997 to 2004, Dub Miller and the Highway 6 Band helped to blaze the trail that others would follow and is generally accepted and one of the architects of what has become the "Texas Country/Red Dirt" scene as it is known today. His debut album "American Troubadour" is considered by some to be a Texas Country classic. After banging it out in the clubs and beer joints all those years he achieved a modicum of fame, almost no riches, and began to long for a domestic lifestyle. Wife, children, family, that sort of thing. Also, he didn't particularly care for fame as he found it difficult to make small talk with strangers. See the previously mentioned upbringing for insight on this matter. In 2004 he applied to and subsequently attended The South Texas College of Law in downtown Houston, Texas. After completing two years of law school, he decided that being a lawyer was going to be a drag and just as subsequently dropped out. So he loaded up a flat bed trailer and moved his life, and plans for the future to New Braunfels, Texas where Dub joined the Dickson Productions team as Operations Manager and general manipulator of the chaos. The Music Fest at Steamboat Colorado is among the biggest of chaos's he has manipulated. Dub stands before you today neither a lawyer, nor a concert promoter and is currently enjoying himself perusing a hopeless pipe-dream as a rocker. He has joined a band with the aforementioned Skinner and Odor along with Meagan Jones, John Ross Silva, and Brian Beken. He blames law school for the annoying tendency to use words like “aforementioned”. The band is called 11 Bones. He feels like he is back in his old high school garage band and is having a gas, gas, gas… He still hates chickens.

Met Dub and the guy's about a year and half ago. Figured anybody with a name like Dub had to be down to earth. For me it was a match made in heaven. These five guy's play their heart's out at every show and give 110% each time they hit the stage. His song's are straight from his heart and it show's when he step's up to the mike. If you are ever lucky enough to catch one of their show's be ready for some great Texas music as well as a beautiful smile. I don't think you will be sitting still for long, so wear those dancing shoes. I know I'm addicted.

never reviewed an album like this, it was extremely refreshing to hear someone write and sing from the heart. so many times these days artist get lost in what got them to where they are. in this case it seems to be just the oppisite. this album demonstrates how proud dub miller seems to be of his roots. i hope to much more from him in the future. it will be pleasent to have some new faces remind us of where we all come from. dub, buddy, please continue on with what ever you are doing to keep the american trubador alive.

My Favorite album. There is not one song on this CD I don't like. Awesome voice! "Lone Star Time" reminds me of me and my buddies. "Miles and Memories" and "Truck Drivin' Man" are a flat out JAM! "Coming Home to You" is a well written song, it's one of my favorites. I saw him twice both with Roger Creager. It is the most entertaining concert I have ever been to. I will be first in line when his next album comes out.

Of course any Lloyd Maines production will be great, but this cd passes the mark. These are great songs. I can't wait for the next effort from Dub Miller!

The American Troubadour CD is one of the best I've heard in a long time. Dub and the rest of the band have a real chemistry live and their sound is great. Plus, you couldn't ask for a nicer group of guys!

Rumor has it that Dub is playing at the Wormy Dog Saloon in Stillwater, OK, on Thursday, January 25. If you are in Stillwater, this is a show that you DON'T want to miss. Trust me!! Oh, yeah, maybe we won't have to push the band back for a football game this time!

Wormy Dog Saloon Dec 2 2000, about 10:45 to 11:30 Tell ya what, I can't apologize enough to Dub and the guys in the band. Fact of the matter is, Stillwater is a college town, the wormy dog is a college bar, and decisions come down to a college metality which translates into bumping the opening band for the football game. BUT.....Dub is a great singer and songwriter and he got on that stage and did exactly what he was supposed to do. He used his time efficiently and effectively and put together a hell of a short set that entertained the crowd. Dub is doing some really great things with his music and if you get the chance, catch his show somewhere down the road.

I got the chance to see Dub Miller last Saturday at the Wormy Dog Saloon in Stillwater, OK. Dub and the guys were not only excellent performers, but they also had a lot of class. For some strange reason, we were forced to wait until the Big 12 Championship game was over before Dub could take the stage, so his show was cut down to less than an hour. However, it was one of the best hours of music I have heard in a long time. My hat's off to Dub Miller and the Highway 6 Band for being truly good sports and a bunch of excellent entertainers. Definitely go and see them soon.
