Nashville came out strong yesterday (10/11) to celebrate Midland’s first career No. 1 for their certified-GOLD debut single “Drinkin’ Problem” at the Sutler Saloon. Midland co-wrote Country Music’s definitive drinking tune of 2017 with hit tunesmiths Shane McAnally (GMR) and Josh Osborne (ASCAP) and recorded alongside esteemed producer, Dann Huff. The feat marked Osborne’s 14th no. 1 and McAnally’s 25th ascend during the celebration hosted by ASCAP and BMI.

Midland follows the chart-topper with their new optimistic tune, “Make A Little” from their critically-acclaimed debut album on Big Machine Records. Touted as “the year’s best Country album” by The Washington Post, ON THE ROCKS earned the No. 1 position on Billboard’s Top Country Album Sales chart.

Fans can catch Midland this weekend at Austin City Limits Music Festival and out with Jon Pardi on CMT On Tour this fall. In early 2018, the trio will take the stage with Little Big Town and Kasey Musgraves. For more information about new music and a full list of upcoming tour dates, visit MidlandOfficial.com.

BMI’s “Young Guns” Monthly Showcase

On the last Wednesday of every month, music fans can enjoy listening to young, up and coming songwriters at the Sulter presented by BMI called “Young Guns”.

The series, created by BMI’s own David Preston 9 months ago, is meant to shine a spotlight on new songwriters mostly in the country genre. It’s a mix of both full band and acoustic performances depending on the artist’s preference.

I had the opportunity to attend the January showcase and throughly enjoyed the show featuring Olivia Bey, Sela Bruce, Charlie’s River, and Paulina Jayne.

As an added plus, love the venue of the newly-reopened and historic the Sutler, which offers great sound in a very cool setting since 1977 when original owner Johnny Potts first opened its doors.

Be sure to check out this fun series featuring BMI’s newest songwriters who I am sure you’ll be hearing about in the years to come every last Wednesday at 8pm at the Sutler in Nashville. Sponsored by Pickers Vodka.
