Garrard County, stand up! Lancaster native Alex Miller brought some serious twang to the American Idol premiere on Sunday night’s show, rocking a western shirt and all the confidence you can cram into a 17-year-old’s body.

The streets of Park City were mostly empty this year as the 2021 Sundance Film Festival was moved mainly online this year.
