Midland Prepping For Big Show

Published On August 23, 2017 | By Cheryl Johnstone | Country Music News

Midland will play to the biggest crowd of their career in just a couple days, compliments of Kenny Chesney. The trio was tapped to open his final shows of the year on Friday, August 25th and Saturday, August 26th in Foxboro, MA, along with Thomas Rhett and Old Dominion.

Midland members Jess Carson and Mark Wystrach are excited.

“We’re doing back to back shows at Gillette Stadium in Boston. I think that place holds like a hundred thousand people or something crazy like that — by far the biggest shows we’ve played. (Mark) Well they say Kenny Chesney at Gillette is the biggest event in country music outside of a music festival. It’s evolved into like a one man music festival and Kenny has such a big pull. And you know I think what we’re doing is very different and I think he’s going to stand out a lot. And I think it’s going to be an incredible opportunity for us to expose ourselves to a lot of new fans. And it’s not even about nerves at that point you’re just having fun and I don’t even know how to prepare for that. I don’t think you can, I think you just step on stage and start playing.”

Midland’s debut album, On The Rocks, will be released on September 22nd.

Meanwhile, Midland recently performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live:
