Tickets Available Now for Up In Texas 2024 Tour
|GRAMMY®-nominated trio Midland today shares their newest single “Up In Texas,” a love letter to the band’s native land that pays tribute to Lonestar State legends, classic Texas sound and iconic sites (and sights). Produced by Midland themselves, the new track delivers more of the band’s signature three-part harmonies, steel guitar and vintage yet fresh sound that fans line up to hear.
|Listen to “Up In Texas” HERE.
|The track, also the namesake of their recently announced tour (on sale now), was written by Midland’s own Jess Carson and Cameron Duddy along with Josh Osborne and Bryan Simpson. With no shortage of pride for the land in which the band was formed, the new track will go to Texas radio today.
|“’Up in Texas’ might be an ode to the place where we formed as a band, but it is meant to be blasted from a dusty old jukebox anywhere on the planet,” said Midland’s Jess Carson.
|“It’s a Lone Star anthem honoring the people, places and personas that have made the state a lil’ bigger than the rest,” added Midland’s Mark Wystrach.
|The new single comes on the heels of their recent release of a cover of Glen Campbell’s beloved “Wichita Lineman,” which Rolling Stone dubbed as one of their “Songs You Need to Know” and Billboard named one of their “8 Must-Hear New Country Songs,” saying “Sinewy guitar lines bring a languid pace to the song, accented by Wystrach’s silken lead vocal, before the song spaces out with a bluesy, rock-leaning guitar line.”

Double Grammy® nominees Midland have sought to reintroduce the Western plains, Laurel Canyon-cum-Bakersfield and Lone Star juke joints to Country music since coming together at a friend’s wedding over common influences and the need for a return to this sort of post-Urban Cowboy Country. For lead singer/guitarist Mark Wystrach, bassist/vocalist Cameron Duddy and lead guitarist/vocalist Jess Carson, the double platinum hit “Drinkin’ Problem” set the stage for their critically acclaimed On The Rocks and No. 1 Billboard Top Country Albums debut Let It Roll to unite classic country fans, hipsters and media including Entertainment Weekly, GQ, The Washington Post, Vogue, Esquire, Variety, Rolling Stone Country and NPR. Based in Dripping Springs, Texas, the trio of songwriters who developed their sound at Tornillo, Texas’ storied Sonic Ranch have been building a following that’s sold-out the Houston Rodeo and Livestock Show, packed a multiple-night stand at Ft. Worth’s iconic Billy Bob’s and re-opened North Hollywood’s legendary Palomino Club for one night only. Bringing listeners a resurgence of their thick harmonies, sad melodies, tart lyrics, and steel guitar with their album The Last Resort: Greetings From (Big Machine Records) the retro-Nuevo trio has grown from bar band to an in-demand headliner who has even put together their own cruise setting sail April 2024 (MidlandCruise.com).
