Midland Reaches #1 with “Drinkin’ Problem” & Celebrates at The Sutler

Friends, family, and members of the industry lined the wall of The Sutler bar and restaurant in Nashville Wednesday, October 11th to join the trio, Midland, co-writers Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne who also produced the song along with Dan Hough to celebrate their debut single hitting the number one spot on the charts.  “Drinkin’ Problem” was the first single off of their first full-length album, On The Rocks.  

As a part of New York Country Swag Takes Nashville week, we were invited to attend this prestigious event and take part in the festivities. The afternoon was co-sponsored by BMI and ASCAP  the performance rights organizations.

Among the speakers at the event, Scott Borchetta, head of Big Machine Records, Midland’s label took the stage to congratulate all involved saying “One of these days, we’re going to look back and say, ‘Do you remember when Midland had their first No. 1?”

The event ended with each member of the band taking the microphone to emotionally thank everyone in the room and each other for this accomplishment.  The band heads out for the CMT On Tour with Jon Pardi and Runaway June and then will join The Breakers Tour with Little Big Town and Kacey Musgraves.  For the full list of tour dates click here.
