Country singer Milton Patton doesn’t want to be stereotyped

A broken relationship turned Milton Patton’s blues into country gold.

Patton grew up in a small town in Arkansas near the Mississippi Delta, where he listened to blues music and rhythm and blues tunes.

An aspiring singer, Patton decided to pursue a different musical path after hearing a song on the radio by country superstar Brad Paisley. As Patton was driving to work one day, emotionally distraught after a recent painful breakup with a girlfriend, he listened to Paisley’s hit song “Whiskey Lullaby.”

There’s a whole bunch of new activity, including new fans, new shows, new original material in-the-works. One of the big things coming up that I want everyone to check out is a big, big event August 24-27 in Alex, Okla., the Doxa Extreme Rodeo. Check it out on Facebook — https://www.facebook.com/doxarodeo/?fref=ts — and it’s way more than a rodeo. It’s also a music festival and more. It really is Extreme. I’ll be there co-hosting the whole 4-day event, and I’ll be the headline show on Aug. 27. Meanwhile in the next few months, the band and I are going to be all around in Oklahoma, Louisiana, Missouri, back home in Arkansas, and we’re working on some shows in Texas and other parts of the country. As always, I truly appreciate all of my fan support and encouragement, and they way y’all have been buying my CD and T-shirts to keep me on the road and in the studio. Keep in touch with me on Facebook! – https://www.facebook.com/MiltonPatton

“They thought because I’m a black man I should just jump on the latest country music trend.”

Milton Patton stole the hearts of country music fans everywhere when he sang his way into the final round of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” in 2013. Since then, the now 23-year-old self-described “Arkansas country boy” has been playing shows, writing songs and self-producing his first independent CD release.

“I had a lot of music industry people coming at me after AGT,” Milton said. “But they had their own ideas of what I should sound like, with a bunch of rap and strange stuff. They thought because I’m a black man I should just jump on the latest country music trend. But what I really like is the classic country sound, just good solid songs and catchy tunes.”

Most country music fans are hungry for a return to the honest homespun sound of a well written, well sung song, Milton says. “It can have a new twist on it with production as long as it’s thoughtful and tasteful. And my material mixes some blues, rock even a little old-school Memphis — it’s the authentic Arkansas country blend. But the main thing is you can’t deny a good song, and that’s where I’m coming from.”
