Midland has a "Drinkin' Problem"

Friday, February 24, 2017 – Texas trio Midland released their music video for its debut single "Drinkin' Problem."

Midland penned the song with Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne.

Basked in the neon blue of an old bar, the video opens with lead singer Mark Wystrach crooning the first lines of the song before the shot widens to reveal bass player Cameron Duddy and guitarist Jess Carson.

"It's really special to be making a music video for our project that is our heart and our soul and everything we got," said Wystrach. "We gathered are friends, family and even the kind folks at the Lockhart police department for a video that's really going to bring the essence of Midland out."

The "Drinkin' Problem" music video was shot in Lockhart, Texas, and directed by Duddy whose past directorial credits include music videos for Bruno Mars ("24k Magic") and Jennifer Lopez ("Ain't Your Mama").

The band recently released a five-song EP on Big Machine.

Concert Review: No sugarcoating, Welch dishes out an experience – Gillian Welch (accompanied, as always, by master guitarist David Rawlings), celebrated her "The Harrow & The Harvest" album with a powerful night of music.
