Midland will "Set it Straight"
Wednesday, August 11, 2021
– Midland will premier its Amazon Music original podcast Set it Straight: Myths and Legends on Aug. 25.
Country is full of tall tales and legends. Midland will separate fact from fiction, every Wednesday on their new as they attempt to uncover the truth behind infamous stories of country music history.
The season premiere will feature Garth Brooks, as he joins Midland to unpack what really happened at the 1996 Fan Fair during his marathon meet-and-greet. Upcoming guests include Martina McBride, Darius Rucker, Wynonna Judd and Jake Brennan.
Midland lead vocalist Mark Wystrach said, "Set It Straight: Myths and Legends is a chance for us to dive into the fascinating folklore and fables in and around country music and gives us an excuse to hang and informally chat with some of our biggest musical and artistic heroes."
Midland bass player/vocalist Cameron Duddy added, "This is a real-life country Cinderella story: Martina McBride went from selling merch for Garth Brooks to opening for Garth Brooks seemingly overnight. Is it true? We had to talk to the legend herself to find out."

Midland is more magicians than musicians. When the trio came out with their omnipresent 2017 single "Drinkin' Problem," they pulled off their first trick: a brand-new band to radio who sounded like old friends. Their sound and their look (matador jackets, mullets and high-density mustaches) were pure vintage. So why did it all seem progressive? Some of this is the landscape. Athletic-fit tee-shirts and a frat boy oversmile make the standard uniform for most of today's country crop. ...
