With all the chest-thumping going on in Nashville today, where bluster and swagger have replaced heart and soul, you half expect some of country music's male stars to be sporting bruises. Which is what makes Midland, a trio of friends based in Dripping Springs, Texas, so undeniably refreshing. Made up of singer Mark Wystrach, lead guitarist Jess Carson and bass player Cameron Duddy, Midland is the embodiment of Seventies California country, all smooth Eagles harmonies and heart-on-your-sleeve lyrics. Their songs are intoxicating, sung with the twang of George Strait. And it's impossible to resist. Now, after endearing themselves to fans with the hit radio single "Drinkin' Problem" and a self-titled EP, Midland recently unveiled their full-length debut, “On the Rocks” (Big Machine Records). A collection of 13 tracks all written or co-written by Midland – the guys took their name from a Dwight Yoakam song – “On the Rocks” excels at setting a mood, transporting the listener to another place and time. It's an album made for wide-open skies, endless deserts and wondering where the road is going to take you next. Whether they intended it or not, Midland are filling a void in country, with songs that run the gamut from lush Urban Cowboy anthems to loose campfire sing-alongs. Putting their own spin on a classic sound, they're making something old relevant again.
