The rising star and American Idol alum shared “Don’t Let The Barn Door Hit Ya” on Friday (Oct. 1) and it’s destined to be a chart-topper with its infectious instrumental and sassy lyrics.
Co-written Bill Whyte alongside Paul Bogart and Dan Wilson, “Don’t Let The Barn Door Hit Ya” is a fast-paced Western Swing tune that finds Miller comparing the country boy lifestyle to the city boy with a love or leave it mentality.
“You got loud horns we got dogs barkin’ / Ain’t gotta pay for no John Deere parkin’ / There’s meat and taters and a lot of fried vittles / If you don’t like that let me tell you a little / Tell you a little thing about that / Don’t let the barn hit ya / Don’t let the barn door hit ya / Don’t let the barn door hit ya / On the way out,” Miller sings in the track’s anthemic chorus.

Miller’s new single, which he dubbed a “hoppin’ little number that gets up and goes,” is set to spin on over 650 jukeboxes around the U.S. at Texas Roadhouse, as he was chosen as the popular restaurant chain’s October Artist Of The Month.
The Jerry Salley-produced single, recorded at The Gorilla’s Nest, marks Miller’s debut on the Nashville-based label, Billy Jam Records.
“It’s just a great showcase song for Alex,” observes Salley. “It gives him a chance to shine at what he does best – traditional Country – and it is a real reflection of the true artistry this young, refreshing talent brings to the table. We are thrilled to have Alex at Billy Jam.”
“Don’t Let The Barn Door Hit Ya” follows his independently released debut single, “I’m Over You So Get Over Me.”
Additionally, the singer is also set to hit the road to support his new music, which you can find tour dates below.
