Holler described the release as “another layer to what’s becoming a striking catalog,” while Entertainment Focus praised “its timeless sound and irresistible charm,” and Country Music People lauded the EP as continued proof Milligan is “one of the most exciting things to happen to country music.”

Milligan also released a short film titled Drake Milligan – Girl Problems, featuring influencers Gabi Butler and Piper Lee, which premiered on Tuesday, February 20 via YouTube followed by a livestream afterparty. Most recently, he appeared on the finale of America’s Got Talent: Fantasy League  to perform his new song, ‘What I Couldn’t Forget’ – watch here.

In addition to his previously announced appearances on the main stage of C2C Festival in each city this month, he was just revealed as the featured artist for the official Aftershow Party at the O2 Arena on Sunday March 10, meaning he’ll be the artist responsible for closing out the entire festival.

Drake Milligan burst onto the national music stage entering the Billboard Emerging Artists Chart at #5 after dominating iTunes with his debut album, Dallas/Fort Worth, charting back-to-back #1 hits on the iTunes Country Songs Chart, #1 on iTunes All-Genre Chart and reclaimed the #1 spot on iTunes Country Albums Chart, all while simultaneously holding positions #1, #2, #3 and #5 on iTunes Country Video Chart. In the UK, Milligan’s debut album spent 11 consecutive weeks in the Top 20 of the Official Country Artists Albums Chart. A student of classic Country music with the swagger of early Rock ‘n’ Roll, the Fort Worth, Texas native is an electrifying entertainer who cites George Strait and Elvis Presley – the King of Country and the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll – as musical heroes, and his unique twist of traditional Country has been embraced by fans, peers and the media alike. Milligan has performed on The Kelly Clarkson Show, The Grand Ole Opry, Stagecoach and CMA Music Festival, and earned high praise from People, BBC, USA Today, Parade, American Songwriter, CMT.com, Billboard, ET, Access Hollywood, Cosmopolitan, Cowgirl Magazine and Taste of Country. Following his Dallas/Fort Worth debut – named “One of the Best Country Albums of 2022” by Billboard and others – Milligan uncorked a Canadian Country Radio #1 in 2023 (“Honky Tonkin’ About” with The Reklaws), garnered 5 million views in just a few months with “Cowgirl For Christmas,” and headlined the massive New Year’s Eve celebration at the famed “World’s Largest Honky Tonk,” Billy Bob’s Texas, where he had also delivered two sold-out homecoming shows in the previous year. Looking ahead, the Stoney Creek Records phenom has dropped “Don’t Leave Me Loving You” – a timeless heartbreak ballad with a modern edge. His latest EP release titled, Jukebox Songs, features four all new tracks and was released on Friday, February 16. The acclaimed “Artist to Watch” (CMT, Pandora, etc.) also returned to his primetime TV roots for the America’s Got Talent spin-off show, America’s Got Talent: Fantasy League and hits the road alongside Cody Johnson on his 2024 U.S. arena tour.
