Midland Releases New 5-Song Acoustic EP, “Guitars, Couches, Etc., Etc.” [Listen to “Drinkin’ Problem”]

With a clever nod to one of their influences, Midland released a new five-song EP, Guitars, Couches, Etc., Etc., on May 29.

The new EP’s moniker pays homage to Dwight Yoakam’s 1986 debut album, Guitars, Cadillacs, Etc., Etc.

Midland—the trio comprised of Mark Wystrach, Cameron Duddy and Jess Carson—stripped down five songs from their catalogue for the acoustic EP, including current single, “Cheatin’ Songs,” as well as chart-topper “Drinkin’ Problem,” “Burn Out” and more.

“The title is a bit tongue in cheek with reference to a seminal album that largely influenced this band cut against the strange reality that we’ve all found ourselves living these last few months,” says Mark. “It was medicinal to pick these songs back up and re-interpret them in a new way both recording wise and in the arrangements and colorings. We hope you enjoy these new iterations as much as we did making em.”

Listen to “Drinkin’ Problem” below.

Brian Kelley Finds A Solo Home

Brian Kelley Finds A Solo Home

Earlier this year Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard announced that while Florida Georgia Line would continue, both guys would also be venturing out to do their own musical projects. As their FGL song “Long Live” is knocking on the door to number-1, Tyler is also climbing the chart with Tim McGraw and their duet “Undivided.”

Now, Brian is giving fans a taste of what’s to come with his solo project – he shared, “There’s a new kind of cowboy in town…who’s ready to ride this wave? Can’t wait for y’all to hear this new music.”

Brian also made some news in announcing that he’s partnering with Warner Music Nashville when it comes to any future solo projects he has, “I couldn’t be more grateful for everyone who has helped me on my journey to get here. I’m humbled to team up with Warner Music Nashville to take the music I’ve been dreamin’ and schemin’ up to the next level. This is just the beginning of a whole new adventure. My vision for what’s next is a vibe and state of mind – get ready to ride the wave with ya Beach Cowboy, y’all!”
