The Drop: Midland

Ahead of the release of their upcoming sophomore album Let It Roll, the GRAMMY Museum will welcome GRAMMY-nominated country group, Midland, for a conversation moderated by Scott Goldman, followed by a performance. Hailing from Dripping Springs, TX, lead vocalist Mark Wystrach fronts Midland’s rich sound that is rounded out with lead guitarist Jess Carson and bass player Cameron Duddy. Rooted in tradition in both sound and style, the trio initially garnered attention playing clubs in the region. Their critically acclaimed freshman album, On The Rocks (Big Machine Records), features 13 tracks with songwriting credits from each member alongside hitmakers Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne. Launching to rave reviews from notable outlets such as the Los Angeles Times and Rolling Stone Country, On The Rocks was declared “the year’s best Country album” by Washington Post. The Dann-Huff produced album earned the No. 1 position on Billboard’s Top Country Album Sales chart upon release. Their debut No. 1 single “Drinkin’ Problem,” which offers an intentional nod to Country music reminiscent of the 1970s and 80s, earned the band their first GRAMMY nomination for Best Country Song and Best Country Duo/Group Performance. Midland was also named New Vocal Group of the Year at the 2018 ACM Awards. The band just released “Mr. Lonely,” the first single off their highly-anticipated upcoming second album Let It Roll, due August 23 on Big Machine Records. While the song has quickly gained a following and was touted as most added at Country radio upon release, they also released the video, which stars acclaimed actor Dennis Quad starring as “Mr. Lonely.” Midland is currently on the road and just announced their fall headlining Let It Roll tour.
