Country singer Jody Miller has died aged 80

Country singer Jody Miller has died aged 80 from complications from Parkinson’s disease.

Miller was best known for her 1965 hit “Queen Of The House,” and had countless hits and six Top Ten entries on the US Billboard Country Chart.

In a statement, Miller’s representative, Jennifer McMullen, said: “The talent of Jody Miller cannot be overstated.

“He had this innate God-given ability to make and communicate the most beautiful tones and inflections. He made it look and sound so painstakingly that it sometimes takes a moment to realize the majesty of what you’re hearing . But she was as authentic and rare in her own life as she was on stage and on record.”

Born in Oklahoma, Miller signed with Capitol Records in 1962 and released his first album “Wednesday’s Child Is Full Of Woe” the following year.

For ‘Queen Of The House’ – a response to ‘King Of The Road’ by Roger Miller – he won the Grammy for Best Country & Western Vocal Performance.

On their Facebook page, Middle-Sister Music – the group of Miller’s daughter, Robin Brook wrote:: “Middle Sister is saddened to announce that Jody Miller, music icon and mother of Robin Brooks, passed away this morning.

“Please remember the family as they deal with this great loss.”
