Before You: How Did We Ever Live Without Charlie Millikin

What the world needs right now, is a beautiful love song, and it’s Charlie Millikin to the rescue!

Charlie’s silky voice, wrapped around such genuine, heartfelt lyrics, makes his new single “Before You” an instant classic.

Charlie Millikin was born into a musical family, was singing and performing with his siblings for friends and family by the age of six, and after getting his first guitar at the age of 18, he’s never looked back.

Who is the girl “Before You” was written about? Charlie says, “It’s actually about when I first fell in love with my current girlfriend. The song came to me very quickly and is one of my favorites.”

Charlie has many love songs in his repertoire. In fact, last year he released a double album of current and classic romantic covers perfect for a bride and groom’s first dance. Although he brought his unique voice and swagger to those tunes, Charlie’s inner light shines even brighter through his captivating originals.

Charlie plans to continue releasing singles through the rest of the year. You can hear ALL of Charlie’s music, past and present, right here on #VWRadio, including our new favorite “Before You.”
