BMI Mourns the Loss of Ned Miller

Posted in News on May 9, 2016

BMI is saddened by the loss of award-winning songwriter Ned Miller, who passed away March 18, at the age of 90. Miller, who was an extremely modest man and reluctant performer, is best known for his song “From a Jack to a King,” which he recorded and brought to No. 6 on the Billboard pop chart in 1963. The hit was also covered by Bobby Darin and Elvis Presley, and was again cut by country crooner Ricky Van Shelton in the 1980s, reaching No. 1 on the country chart. Miller also found success with other songs he wrote, including “Behind The Tear,” “Dark Moon,” “Do What You Do Do Well,” “Invisible Tears,” “Next Time I Fall In Love” and “Snow Flake.” An album of songs stemming from his prolific songwriting career, including many never before released, is in the works. Miller will be sadly missed by his friends and fans at BMI.
