Tonight, Midland kicks off their Let It Roll Tour in New York City but before playing for thousands of fans at Terminal 5, the trio joined a small group of radio winners at New York’s Country 94.7 studios for an Up Close & Country performance. Radio personality and DJ Katie Neal welcomed the band to the intimate performance space and discussed their two CMA Award nominations, for Vocal Group of the Year as well as New Artist of the Year. “It’s a very cool thing, we are honored to be thrown in the mix with all of those people who have been doing it for a while,” Cameron Duddy explained. Even going on to say they are the youngest band to be nominated, not meaning by age but by how long they have been around.
Neal also congratulated two of the three band members, Jess, who welcomed a baby into his family this past year and Mark, who has gotten engaged and will become a dad very soon. Throughout the interview and the performance, the trio’s dry sense of humor had fans engaged, thoroughly enjoying their back and forth banter.
After the brief chat, the boys of Midland kicked off their performance with one of our favorite songs from their latest album, Let It Roll, “Playboys“. Their traditional country sound resonated throughout the small theater as the lucky audience members tapped their feet to the infectious, clever tune. They showcased songs from Let It Roll including “Put The Hurt On Me”, “Fast Hearts and Slow Towns” and their current single “Mr. Lonely”. Of course, they had to end with their debut single and first number one at country radio, “Drinkin’ Problem”. Head to our Instagram to check out exclusive clips of the evening.
Not only did the studio audience enjoy watching the trio bring honky-tonk music to New York City, they got to meet the band after and they were delighted to find out that they all also had won tickets to tonight’s epic tour kick off. To grab your tickets click here.
