Pure Country troubadours Midland earned strong reviews while opening for Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s Soul2Soul World Tour in Canada this past weekend. With a stripped down acoustic set that included their Top 15-and-rising Country radio single “Drinkin’ Problem,” the Texas trio caught the attention of both fans a music critics alike:
“Opening the evening was Texas trio Midland, with acoustic guitars and harmonies that would make the Everly Brothers blush.”
– Calgary Herald
“Openers Midland were a throwback of sorts to ’70s country-rock, but without the rhythm section. Three guys, three guitars, nice harmonies, some sweetly trad musical impulses, and a song called Drinkin’ Problem, which shows exactly where they’re coming from.”
– Edmonton Journal
The demand for Midland continues to show impressive momentum heading into one of Country music’s biggest weeks. CMA Music Festival. “Drinkin’ Problem” remains one of the top 10 best-selling Country songs on iTunes and remains the only Country song on Pandora’s Trendsetter Chart.
