Country’s Hippest New Trio, Midland, Reveals Lawbreaking New Video for “Drinkin’ Problem”

Country’s coolest new trio, Midland—made up of Mark Wystrach, Cameron Duddy and Jess Carson—released their brand new video for their current single, “Drinkin Problem.”

The video—shot in Lockhart, Texas, and directed by bass player Cameron Duddy, whose past directorial credits include music videos for Bruno Mars (“24k Magic”) and Jennifer Lopez (“Ain’t Your Mama”)—finds the guys illegally selling moonshine to finance a recording of their current single in order to get it on radio. While the guys enjoy the fruits of their money-making labor in a local bar, they are soon tracked down by police. Just when you think Mark, Jess and Cameron are done for, the video takes a turn with the guys eluding the long arm of the law.

“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 Mark in a statement. “We gathered our 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.”

“People say I’ve got a drinkin’ problem / That ain’t no reason to stop / People sayin’ that I’ve hit rock bottom / Just cause I’m living on the rocks / It’s a broken hearted thinkin’ problem / So pull that bottle off the wall / People say I got a drinkin’ problem  /But I got no problem drinkin’ at all,” the guys sing in the chorus.

Midland’s five song self-titled EP is available now and features the current single, “Drinkin’ Problem.” The trio will be hitting the road as part of Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s Soul2Soul Tour—joining the tour for four dates in April.
