ABOUT MIDLAND

Originally formed in Dripping Springs, Texas, lead vocalist Mark Wystrach fronts Midland’s rich sound, rounded out by lead guitarist Jess Carson and bass player Cameron Duddy.

Already featured in Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly and Billboard, their full-length debut album on Big Machine Records features their #1 song, “Drinkin’ Problem,” and is available everywhere September 22nd. Midland intentionally nods to the wild west with Country music reminiscent of the 1970s and 80s, channeling legends idols Dwight Yoakam and Willie Nelson, both who they previously opened for on the road. Directed by band member Cameron, Midland was nominated for a CMT Music Award for Group Video of the Year. Watch the video here: http://vevo.ly/j6UPkQ.

“Girl Crush” From Little Big Town: It’s Not What You Think It Is

Little Big Town Girl CrushCurrently, radio stations across the country are being forced to pull from rotation Little Big Town’s newest single “Girl Crush”.  This is all due to some angry listeners misinterpreting the song and thinking it’s about lesbians.  If it actually was, would that really be so bad? It’s 2015, after all.   It’s not, though, so everybody just relax.  What the song is really about is a jealous ex-girlfriend wanting to put herself in the place of the current girlfriend.  She wants to live vicariously through eyes of the current and desperately wants what the current girlfriend has back.  Think we’ve all been there wondering what your ex sees in this other person that they no longer see in you as your heart breaks wanting what you once had back.

Song Lyrics: Little Big Town | “Day Drinking”

Little Big Town | “Day Drinking”

 

Watch the live performance video of “Day Drinking” from the CMT Music Awards HERE!

Everybody’s always waitin’ on Friday
Watching that clock and sip on joe
Whatchya say we find a little warm sunshine
And open up an umbrella on the patio

I don’t need a reason to go to happy hour
And hang around for a fireworks show
Get a head start a little sip of somethin’
1, 2, 3 here we go

Don’t want to wait til the sun’s sinking
We could be feeling all right
I know you know what I’m thinking
why don’t we do a little day drinking

Why don’t we do a little day drinking

Blame it on the work day
Blame it on the heatwave
Blame it on the tick-tock moving too slow
Blame it on any old thing you want to
Baby get set baby here we go

Don’t want to wait til the sun’s sinking
We could be feeling all right
I know you know what I’m thinking
why don’t we do a little day drinking

Why don’t we do a little day drinking

Don’t want to wait til the sun’s sinking
We could be feeling all right
I know you know what I’m thinking
why don’t we do a little day drinking

Don’t want to wait til the sun’s sinking
We could be feeling all right
I know you know what I’m thinking
why don’t we do a little day drinking

Why don’t we do a little day drinking
Why don’t we do a little day drinking
