By any standard, Roger Miller qualified not merely as one of the most unique country and western singer-songwriters, but as one of the most unique American musicians per se . A Texas-born, Oklahoma-raised child of the Great Depression, Miller gravitated to music from early childhood and seemed built to sing, play and pen original tunes. As such, his clever, often humorous lyrics and folksy melodic hooks (colored by a unique country brand of scat singing) gave him a large and loyal fanbase on songs such as "Dang Me," "Kansas City Star," and especially the iconic "King of the Road." In later years, Miller hearkened off in different directions, placing a comparatively greater emphasis on songs authored by others, such as Bobby Russell ("Little Green Apples") and Kris Kristofferson ("Me and Bobby McGee"), and in the mid-1980s he experienced a career resurgence by authoring the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical +Big River, adapted from the writings of Mark Twain. Drawing equally from interview footage and archival clips, this documentary provides a brief overview of Miller's life and career.
