Miller Harris was born June 19, 1974 with a sweet disposition that was evident from the beginning. At age three he was diagnosed with asthma, and after enduring a regimen of allergy tests to pinpoint his specific triggers, he began his lifelong ordeal with the ultimately fatal condition. Miller was undaunted by the effects of the disease, and his lust for life endeared him to all who knew him.
After graduating from high school 1992, Miller continued his education first at Ole Miss, then transferring his sophomore year to Middle Tennessee State University to study in the Recording Industry Management program. After graduating from MTSU in 1996, Miller joined his mom, Judy Harris, in the music publishing business. They signed Earl Thomas Conley, who Miller regarded as the “real deal”. Songwriters and artists who came in to the office were always drawn in by Miller’s enthusiasm. He was always happy for other’s success, and he made every day an adventure and truly ‘lived’ each day.
