Midland’s Sophomore Album ‘Let It Roll’ Debuts at No. 1
Midland are on a roll with the release of their latest album. The group's sophomore effort, Let It Roll, debuts at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums Chart after its release on Aug. 23.
The trio's debut studio album, On the Rocks, previously reached its peak of No. 2 on the Top Country Albums Chart, scoring hits with "Drinkin' Problem," "Make a Little" and "Burn Out."
Midland, which consists of lead singer Mark Wystrach, guitarist Jess Carson and bass player Cameron Duddy, have received extensive critical acclaim for Let It Roll from media outlets including Rolling Stone, NPR and Variety.
Let It Roll features the same team of producers and writers that helped make On the Rocks a success. Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne once again assist in the songwriting process, along with all of the members of Midland. McAnally and Osborne join Dann Huff once more to produce the album's 14 tracks.
