Midland band signs with Big Machine

Wednesday, March 9, 2016 – Texas trio Midland signed with Big Machine Label Group.

The band apparently has been in the studio recording an EP, they said on their Facebook page. The page cited "another incredible week of work in the studio with @shanemcanally & @joshosborne."
