Formed in 2016, country music trio Midland — named after Dwight Yoakam's song "Fair to Midland" — got its start playing local gigs in Dripping Springs, Texas. Known for their traditional style and sound, the band is composed of lead vocalist Mark Wystrach, guitarist Jess Carson, and bass player Cameron Duddy.
In 2016, their critically-acclaimed freshman album "On the Rocks," reached No. 1 on Billboard's Top Country Album chart, including three of their charted hits: "Make a Little," "Burn Out," and No. 1 single "Drinkin' Problem," which later scored the band two Grammy Awards nominations for "Best Country Song" and "Best Country Duo/Group Performance."
Midland was named "New Vocal Group of the Year" at the 2018 Academy of Country Music Awards and has toured alongside country artists such as Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Little Big Town, and Thomas Rhett. The band released their latest single, "Mr. Lonely," in March 2019, which will be featured on their highly-anticipated second album, set to debut later this year.
