Movin’ On Up

We’re proud to note that our very own Dan Milliken has been published by for the first time.

Check out his write-up of the Toby Keith classic, “Who’s That Man”:

The impossible question of divorce is how to divide lives that have become so intricately knitted together. As Keith demonstrates in this dark, brooding song, no answer to that question comes without its toll. The narrator of “Who’s That Man” has lost every staple of his former life in the collapse of his marriage, and as if that weren’t bad enough, someone else is filling his shoes without any apparent hitch.

Of course, this is an awesome and impressive new platform for Dan’s writing, but let’s be honest. Just like Country Universe got a hell of a lot better once he joined us, CMT can only be elevated by his trademark wit and undeniable talent.

    I couldn’t agree more, Kevin. I saw his name in the write up last week.

    Congratulations Dan!

  2. Great write-up, Dan! And congratulations on getting your writing published on You’re a talented writer all right, and I always enjoy reading your posts. (Personal favorites: Oak Ridge Boys “Seven Nation Army” review, and Jerrod Niemann “Lover, Lover” review – I got a huge kick out of those)

  3. I just hope Dan remembers us when he’s at the top.:)

  6. Congratulations, Dan.

  7. …competing with alison bonaguro for publishing space – should be a piece of cake. congrats, dan.

  8. I used to read the CMT Blog on a regular basis – and Roughstock occasionally – til I discovered CU in August of last year, and through CU I found MKOC & 9513, I haven’t looked at CMT since. But it is better known so getting published there is quite an accomplishment. Congratulations, Dan.

  9. Congrats Dan!!
    CU was better for having you, and will be better for having you as well!!

  10. Hey, hey, hey! There’s no was here. We’re still better for having him, since we still have him.:)

  11. Oh, I must’ve been confused, Is this move permanant or what? Is he working at both CU & CMT?

    CMT is just an internship, so I’ve still got my CU privileges! Hopefully they won’t jump ship on me once they read the old reviews.

    Thanks as ever for the support, everybody. I couldn’t ask for a nicer group of blog buddies!

  13. YAY!!!!!! I enjoy reading your posts on here, so glad to see they will still continue!! :)

  14. Congrats, Dan!
