In the middle of Rockefeller Center on an early Wednesday morning, Carson Daly and the Today Show hosted one of the most prominent upcoming artists in the industry. Midland joined Daly on stage before they performed where he shared some exciting news. “They just released their new album Let It Roll on the 23rd…and man guys things have just been happening for you. Congratulations on all the success. And another little breaking news story this morning, the CMA nominations just came out this morning and you have been nominated for CMA New Artist of the Year” Daly said as the Texas-natives stood there in awe. Along with being in the New Artist category, they are also nominated for Vocal Group of the Year. Check out all of the other nominees here.
Channeling their excitement right into their performance, live on the CITI Stage, they performed “Mr. Lonely,” the first single off their new album. Accompanied by a drummer and back-up guitar, the boys played their hearts out of this song that left fans, and hosts, dancing along on all sides of the stage. Between wearing their featured cowboy hats, real cowboy boots, and signature mustaches, and a classic country tune, the trio added a little country flair to New York this morning. Just like past songs, “Mr. Lonely” channels the roots of country music they grew up with. Paying homage to their honky-tonk heroes, Midland delivers an upbeat, toe-tapping, good timing song that will be played in honky-tonks all over the country for years to come.
