I haven't seen confirmation of this yet. It's not on his website or Facebook page.
His YouTube Channel has some good examples of his playing.

Where did you hear this, open mike? I can't find any news of it. I learned some of his arrangements of old standards, Beatle tunes and fiddle tunes off his Kicking Mule albums and it got me started on arranging my own.

Dakota Dave Hull posted it on Facebook this morning, but have not seen it mentioned elsewhere yet.

Here is a FB post, apparently this sad news is true:
To Dale's Facebook friends. This is his wife Terry. Dale died Monday night from complications of the treatment for lymphoma. He was my soulmate and loving partner/husband for more than 30 years. My fondest memories of him are dancing to his playing in numerous federal and state parks around the west. I know he loved facebook and all his friends in this world --- especially fellow musicians and guitarists. We can remember him through his CDs and on his you-tube channel where you can see his elegant fingers at work.

I wish I hadn't visited Mudcat tonight. This is very distressing. J J Cale a few weeks ago and now Dale Miller, The great ones are checking out. My most sincere sympathy to Mrs. Miller and all family, relations and friends.

Sad to hear this. I have one of those Kicking Mule recordings too, and although I haven't listened to it for a long time, I remember he was a very fine player.

Condolences to his family.

Such a natural and he played with such a feel good touch. It is too bad a really good one.

Sad to read this. He could play some complex stuff (moving bass lines, etc,) but was always musical first and foremost.

a beautiful player.....I saw the Kicking Mule tour at Keele University in th 70's. Dale seemed to me the most natural of all that lot.

I came to learn about Mr Miller through articles in Acoustic Guitar Magazine, and then followed up on his work, because I liked the character of the man that shone through his words. Then I heard his music. A true musician, dedicated, always exploring and always encouraging others. Obviously a gifted a teacher and caring human being, he will always be there in his music as an inspiration. My condolences to family and friends. -- Ev

Remembering the great Dale Miller. Dale invited me for a lesson one Saturday after his McCabes concert (thirty years ago) to the house of Bob Baxter in Calabasas. All he wanted for payment was a can of shaving cream. He taught me his version of Somewhere over the Rainbow. I have played it in countless coffee houses over the last thirty years. He was a fine fellow, true gentleman, with a guitar case plastered with airline stickers from all over the world. I shall always remember him with great fondness.

R.I.P. Dale... I hadn't been made aware of J.J. Cale's (R.I.P.) demise. Unfortunately, I was only turned on to Dale's work 4-5 years ago & never had the opportunity to see/meet/hear him in-person. Thoughts of sympathy to the families of BOTH of these fine songwriters' songwriters/musicians' musicians
