There are two Roger Millers. 1. A country singer best known for "King of the Road". 2. A rock guitarist best known for his work with Mission of Burma.

1. Roger Dean Miller (January 2, 1936 - October 25, 1992) was an American singer, songwriter, and musician.

Although conventionally grouped with "Country" singers, Miller's unique style defied easy classification. He had a string of pop hits in the 1960s, and also his own TV show for a few years. Many of his recordings were humorous novelty songs with whimsical lyrics, coupled with vocalese riffs filled with nonsense syllables. Others were sincere ballads, which also caught the public's fancy, none more so than his signature song, "King of the Road", about a presumed "hobo" who relishes his life and freedom, riding the rails.

In addition to 11 Grammy Awards, Roger Miller won Broadway's Tony award for writing the score for the musical Big River.

He was voted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1973 and the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1995.

2. Roger Miller is an American singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist best known for co-founding the groups Mission of Burma and Birdsongs of the Mesozoic.

His main instruments are guitar and piano. Critics describe Miller's guitar playing as balancing rock energy with cerebral experimentation, while his keyboard work has earned comparisons to Béla Bartók and even Cecil Taylor."
