About Town

Midland

With all the chest-thumping going on in Nashville today, where bluster and swagger have replaced heart and soul, you half expect some of country music's male stars to be sporting bruises. Which is what makes Midland, a trio of friends based in Dripping Springs, Texas, so undeniably refreshing. Made up of singer Mark Wystrach, lead guitarist Jess Carson and bass player Cameron Duddy, Midland is the embodiment of Seventies California country, all smooth Eagles harmonies and heart-on-your-sleeve lyrics. Their songs are intoxicating country sung with the twang of George Strait.

Robert Earl Keen

Over his three-decade career, with over a dozen albums and thousands of shows to his credit, Texas songwriter Robert Earl Keen has had versions of his songs (such as "The Road Goes on Forever") recorded by Lyle Lovett (his college buddy), Nanci Griffith and Joe Ely. And along the way, his "Merry Christmas From the Family" became a holiday classic on left-of-the-dial radio.
