Midland | Back Porch LIVE

presented by Texas Roadhouse

Meet Texas Roadhouse's Artist of the Month, Midland!

Hailing from Dripping Springs, TX American country music group Midland is catching the eye of old and new country music lovers alike. The trio made a quick pit stop in our Texas Roadhouse Back Porch LIVE to give us an acoustic sneak peek at some of their new music... and let us tell you—it’s good.

Lead vocalist Mark Wystrach, bass guitarist/vocalist Cameron Duddy, and lead guitarist/vocalist Jess Carson create the ultimate soul of old school country sound and the rock n’ roll sound that HANK listeners love.

Midland’s album On the Rocks is 13 tracks of songwriting genius courtesy of hit makers such as Shane McAnally and Josh Osbourne. “Drinkin’ Problem,” their debut single, hit No.1 and earned the trio their first Grammy Nominations for Best Country Song and Best Country Duo/Group Performance.

With plenty of nods to country music’s roots, Midland is paving their own way in the 2018 country music landscape and giving us a ton of good music along the way! We promise you won’t “Burn Out” on their music anytime soon!


FUN FACTS

Duddy is a music video director and has worked/directed with Bruno Mars, Fifth Harmony, and Jennifer Lopez (as well as Midland’s “Drinkin’ Problem” music video). He won an MTV Video Music Award for directing Bruno Mar’s “Locked Out of Heaven” video.

Wystrach used to be a model for Calvin Klein.

They’re HUGE pranksters and love a good laugh on the road; comparing themselves to the Three Stooges. We caught a glimpse of that when we brought them to the Indiana State Fairgrounds Midway to play a game!


WHAT TO LISTEN TO: Grammy Nominated “Best Country Song” – “Drinkin’ Problem", New Single: “Burn Out” which features some classic country music poetry. Midland’s debut album On the Rocks dropped in 2017—and we still can't get enough. Check out more new music from Midland on our YouTube Page and 97.1 HANK FM!

WHERE TO CATCH MIDLAND LIVE: Touring with Little Big Town & Kacey Musgraves for THE HEARTBREAKERS TOUR. Midland will also be joining Thomas Rhett’s LIFE CHANGES TOUR this Fall.
