“We cannot wait to get back to Australia! We had such a great time down there in 2019 when we got to party with you all! It's been too long and we look forward to escaping the Texas winter and enjoying some sun and playing some great music for our Aussie Midlanderos in December!”


Hailing from Dripping Springs, TX lead vocalist Mark Wystrach fronts Midland’s rich sound that is rounded out with lead guitarist Jess Carson and bass player Cameron Duddy. Rooted in tradition in both sound and style the trio initially garnered attention playing clubs in the region. Their critically acclaimed freshman album, “On the Rocks” (Big Machine Records), features 13 tracks with song writing credits from each member alongside hitmakers Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne. Launching to rave reviews from notable outlets such as the Los Angeles Times and Rolling Stone Country, “On the Rocks” was declared “the year’s best Country album” by Washington Post.


Their debut No. 1 single “Drinkin’ Problem,” which offers an intentional nod to Country music reminiscent of the 1970s and 80s, earned the band their first Grammy Awards nominations for Best Country Song and Best Country Duo/Group Performance. Midland was also named New Vocal Group of the Year at the 2018 ACM Awards and nominated for three CMA Awards including Vocal Group of the Year, Single of the Year for “Drinkin’ Problem” and New Artist of the Year.


Their second album LET IT ROLL was a top five release on the Australian Country album ARIA Charts in 2019 and coincided with their first visit to Australia as part of the international contingent headlining the inaugural C2C Music festival in September 2019. Showcasing their Texas County/traditional country style, they gripped a local audience that loved their retro 70s country style and songs about lost love, endless desert roads, electric rodeos and drinkin’ problems.


Midland will release their new album THE LAST RESORT: GREETINGS FROM (Big Machine/UMA) in May 2022. The trio spent the pandemic exploring their creative depths, from progressive Country that grew out of “Urban Cowboy” through Dwight Yoakam’s post-traditionalism, and arrive with their third studio album. Midland once again tap into that post-urban cowboy sound that their fans love. The album is accompanied by a European and US Tour from May 2022.


Midland’s special guest is Australia’s own country music superstar Travis Collins. Collins is a regular mainstage fixture at Australia’s peak country music festivals and routinely plays to sold-out crowds across the country. His most recent album, Wreck Me (2020) reached No.1 on the ARIA Country Albums Chart, debuting in the Top 10 of the ARIA Albums Chart. It also landed Collins his second ARIA Awards nomination for Best Country Album. Collins is a multiple Golden Guitar Award winner.
