Midland is giving fans the first taste of their upcoming sophomore album with the release of lead single, “Mr. Lonely.” The new song, which the trio co-penned with Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne, will impact country radio on April 15.

The video for “Mr. Lonely” features a choreographed line dance, harkening back to the boot-stompin’ craze of the 1990s.

“This song pays homage to our honky-tonk heroes,” said Midland via Twitter. “It’s balls to the wall country honky-tonk rock ’n’ roll. It’s about having fun and it’s not meant to be taken too seriously, except on the dance floor.”

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.
