Watch Midland Perform Upcoming Single, “Mr. Lonely,” From New Album at Hall of Fame Event

Reigning ACM New Vocal Group of the Year Midland—the trio comprised of Mark Wystrach, Cameron Duddy and Jess Carson—treated industry insiders and some lucky fans to a free pop-up show at the Country Music Hall of Fame on Feb. 12.

The trio performed a number of tunes from their 2017 debut album, On the Rocks, including Grammy-nominated “Drinkin’ Problem,” “Make a Little” and their current Top 10 single, “Burn Out.” In addition, the guys covered Jerry Reed’s “East Bound and Down” and Bruce Springsteen’s “Tougher Than the Rest,” a tune that The Boss wrote and featured on his 1987 album, Tunnel of Love.

Midland also shared the lead single, “Mr. Lonely,” from their upcoming sophomore album, which is expected to drop in the coming months.

Check out the video of “Mr. Lonely” below.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
