Performing On Main Stage At C2C Festival In March

BMG/Stoney Creek recording artist Drake Milligan is keeping his boot on the gas as the new year begins, following a chart-topping breakout with plans for a brand new EP. 

Set for release on February 16th, the pure-country hitmaker’s Jukebox Songs EP marks another bold chapter of high-energy twang. Produced by fellow Texan and traditionally-minded star, Trent Willmon, the EP will once again highlight Milligan’s smooth, booming baritone vocal, towering over four fresh tracks full of instant-classic intensity and diverse country soul … including an unforgettable heartbreak anthem. 

Pre-order/pre-add/pre-save HERE.

Penned by Bobby Pinson, Matt Rogers & Ben Stennis, “Don’t Leave Me Loving You” is a timeless, classic-country style ballad, aching and built on a still-tender emotional wound. The track places Milligan’s standout Texas baritone before a delicate, rootsy arrangement.

He’s set to compete on NBC’s upcoming America’s Got Talent spin-off show, Fantasy League, and will also return overseas in March to perform on the main stage at C2C (Country to Country) Festival in London, Glasgow, Belfast, Berlin and Rotterdam.
