#125 – Scott Miller of the V-Roys – Sooner or Later

The V-Roys hailed from Knoxville, Tennessee, with a sound that blended gritty rock n’ roll with bar room country and a keen melodic sense.  The band put out two albums on Steve Earle’s E-Squared label in the 1990s before breaking up near the end of the decade.  Since then, the members have gone their separate ways, yet their legend has continued to grow. They were named “Best Knoxville Band Ever” in a 2009 poll conducted by Metro Pulse magazine.  Since both of their discs are currently out of print, to satisfy demand, they’ve released  Sooner or Later, compiling the best tracks from their two albums, plus extra unreleased material.  Icon Fetch talks with singer/guitarist Scott Miller about the new best of, plans for a New Year’s Eve reunion of the original members, and about playing Farm Aid with Neil Young.  Miller also touches on his new solo material.
