Allen Scott Miller (born 1968) is an American Southern rock and alternative country singer, songwriter, and guitarist.[2][3]

Miller grew up on a farm in Swoope, Virginia.[4] After graduating from William and Mary, he moved to Knoxville, Tennessee in 1990. In 1994, he helped form a band called the Viceroys, which was renamed The V-Roys to avoid confusion with existing groups.[4][5] The V-Roys were the first act signed on Steve Earle's label, E-Squared Records.

After the V-Roys split up in 1999, Miller formed a new band, Scott Miller and the Commonwealth, who were briefly the house band on Blue Collar TV. The Lexington Herald-Leader wrote of Miller's first albums after the V-Roys as "strong, folk-infused songs" in which "the boozy charm of his music was innocuous."[6]

Miller's songs reflect his degrees in American History and Russian Studies, with references to his home, family, history, geography, writers and Appalachia. As of 2013, Miller was based in Staunton, Virginia.[7]
