One of the Most Critically Acclaimed Country Albums of the Year... Midland’s LET IT ROLL
"The country band's second album is as clever as it is nostalgic, mixing witty spins on Conway Twitty-style cheating songs with '70s mellow gold.” -Variety
“But the guys in Midland —who are all singers, songwriters, instrumentalists and arrangers and work closely with their producers Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne and Dann Huff —put their biggest stamp on their music with their craftsmanship.” –NPR
"The harmonies are warm and exact, with Wystrach’s Keith Whitley-esque vocals deep and sometimes rolling into a tongue-in-cheek growl, to remind us that music is also supposed to be fun. It’s a fully realized and seriously executed work that’s never entirely serious — this is Midland, after all."
“...a natural extension of its acclaimed 2017 debut On The Rocks, which spawned the hits “Drinkin’ Problem” and “Burn Out.” Every element is rooted a little deeper: the lyrical imagery, the crispness of the instrumentation, and the harmonies of members Mark Wystrach, Jess Carson, and Cameron Duddy that toggle between pristine precision and gloriously raggedy edges like artfully-ripped jeans.” –Entertainment Weekly
“With sounds as well-worn as the barstool its protagonist refuses to abandon—think warm, Dwight Yoakam-esque country and swirling, Laurel Canyon folk...” –Esquire
“With 14 songs that manage to be retro and contemporary, current and ageless, happy and heartbreaking, the collection will have people talking.” –The Tennessean
“...this fun-loving trio threads the needle between old-school honky-tonk country and soft-rock ear candy, with big hooks and harmonies.” –HITS
Double GRAMMY® nominees Midland return with LET IT ROLL, their second critically lauded project. Recorded in four different cities in the throes of “a tour that will never end,” the hard-working trio cited by The New York Times for their “retro country elegance” arrives with major features on Rolling Stone, Esquire and NPR, which afforded the album a rare “First Listen.”
The album debuts at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. Midland’s lead singer Mark Wystrach, guitarist Jess Carson and bass player Cameron Duddy all played an integral role in writing the 14-track album with Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne. The album was produced by Dann Huff, McAnally and Osborne.
