You can take the boys out of Texas, but you can’t take Texas out of the boys.

The up-and-coming trio, Midland, aimed true to their down home roots with a little bit of moonshine and a touch of escaping the fuzz in their Western-made-modern music video for their current single, “Drinkin’ Problem.” Making the clip even more meaningful, bass player Cameron Duddy directed the retro short film that highlighted the true meaning behind the song.

“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 band member Mark 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 single, “Drinkin’ Problem,” was cleverly written by the trio, along with Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne.

“It’s talking about something that’s real, but it’s told in a way that it can be tongue-in-cheek, depending on how the audience experiences it,” explained Wystrach recently.

Midland also recently released their five-song EP on digital music retailers and will be joining Tim McGraw and Faith Hill for their Soul2Soul Tour this year. Fans can find dates and information regarding the tour on the Midland website.
