JP Miller Bio
After graduating from college, JP Miller left the hills and his family in West Virginia and headed for The Smoky Mountains to work at the Southern Gospel Music Association in their gift shop to get his foot in the door of following his dream to be a gospel singer. It wasn’t long before JP made his way into the industry and the Southern Gospel family.
His first “gig” was co-hosting a weekly talk show on Gospel Music Television with Gospel Music Hall of Famer, Lou Wills Hildreth. JP and Lou were headliners on GMT for three years. Their success led them to do shows from Bill and Gloria’s Family Fest, Backstage at The Dove Awards, The Ryman Auditorium, and the National Quartet Convention.
During his time on GMT, JP began to tour as a soloist for The Church of God Children’s Home and traveled with a choir made up of residents from this organization. JP recorded solo albums during this time and began another television show with Amanda Crabb taping shows at Gospel Music Week, Crabb Fest, and TBN.
At last it was time for JP to join Troy and Katy Peach to form the trio, “First Love” a trio that made a big impact in the Southern Gospel Music Industry in only a short time being nominated for new group of the year by the fans of Singing News Magazines and receiving rave reviews from credits and charting on national radio play. At the close of First Love, JP shifted his focus to his family and centered much of his work in Sevierville and the surrounding areas. Singing at Dollywood, hosting various television shows and community events, while continuing to record and do a limited touring schedule all while working at his home church, Parkway Church of God as the Youth Pastor.
Today, JP continues to center his ministry on his two children (Macee and Micah) where he is the Vice President of their school’s parent’s association. JP also hosts a weekly television and radio show, The Smoky Mountain Gospel Jubilee, “The Jubilee” broadcasts from The Ogle Furniture Outlet in front of a live audience and has become a staple on Monday nights at 6:00pm for the past eight years. The show broadcasts from the Ogle Furniture Outlet on Dolly Parton Parkway in Sevierville on Praise 96.3 and airs on locally and regionally on television. Over 20,000 people have attended the show in person. It continues to grow and be a favorite for locals and tourists in the Smokies. JP has become a regular singing at Dollywood, conferences, and concerts in the East Tennessee area.
JP does limited concert appearances and more recently has become a popular emcee for national gospel music concerts, events, and cruises. In 2016, JP was awarded the Lou Hildreth Award at the Diamond Awards for recognizing excellence in Christian media. This prestigious award recognizes an individual who has achieved outstanding success working in media in the gospel music industry.
