Country star to entertain crowds


July 11, 2013 - 12:00 AM

Music will be a strong component of the entertainment provided Friday night.
Josey Milner, an up-and-coming country music star, will perform at two separate times and venues.
From 7 to 7:45 p.m. Milner will be on the bandstand playing more old-time favorites as she plays the acoustic guitar.
One of her favorite tunes is Patsy Cline’s “Walking After Midnight.”
Then from 11 p.m. to midnight Milner and her full band will play in front of the post office on West Street “to get the crowd pumped up for the race,” said Mike Ford of Crime Stoppers, which with Thrive Allen County is organizing the Charley Melvin Mad Bomber Run for Your Life.
Milner, 18, hails from Kansas City, Mo., and has opened for country star Chris Cagle, among others. In 2012 she released her new single, “Not Pretty Enough,” although she herself is a former teen rodeo and pageant princess.
Milner’s performances will be free to the public.
“She gave us a good deal,” said Damaris Kunkler, program director at Thrive Allen County.
Proceeds from ticket sales for the run/walk will help defer the cost of Milner’s performances.
