Midland to Headline Way Out West Country Music Fest! April 3, 2019


El Paso - April 3, 2019 - American Country Music group, Midland, will headline the Fourth Annual Way Out West Country Music Festival (WOW Fest) to be held on Saturday, October 12th at Southwest University Park. Now in its fourth year, El Paso’s country music festival will deliver an evening filled with several top country music acts to be announced throughout the year!

Hailing from Dripping Springs, Texas, lead vocalist Mark Wystrach fronts Midland’s rich sound that is rounded out with lead guitarist Jess Carson and bass player Cameron Duddy. Rooted in tradition in both sound and style, the trio initially garnered attention playing in clubs around the region. Their critically-acclaimed freshman album, ON THE ROCKS (Big Machine Records), features 13 tracks with songwriting credits from each member alongside hitmakers Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne.

Launching to rave reviews from notable outlets such as the Los Angeles Times and Rolling Stone Country, ON THE ROCKS was declared “2018’s best Country album” by Washington Post.  The Dann-Huff produced album earned the No. 1 position on Billboard’s Top Country Album sales chart upon release. Their debut No. 1 single “Drinkin’ Problem,” which offers an intentional nod to Country music reminiscent of the 1970s and 80s, earned the band their first GRAMMY® Awards nominations for Best Country Song and Best Country Duo/Group Performance. 

Midland was also named New Vocal Group of the Year at the 2018 ACM Awards and their current single “Burn Out” is Top 10 at Country Radio. The band released a video for the song, which was inspired by the vintage style of Urban Cowboy and filmed at the legendary Billy Bob’s Honky Tonk in Fort Worth, Texas. In 2018 Country Radio Broadcasters voted the trio as one of the esteemed 2018 CRS New Faces.

Currently Midland is nominated for Group of the Year and Video of the Year at the 54th ACMs and recently released “Mr. Lonely”, the lead single from their upcoming sophomore album, which is expected to drop in the coming months. 

Fans can purchase tickets to the Way Out West Country Music Festival starting Thursday, April 18th at the Southwest University Park Box Office, online at or by calling (915) 533-BASE.
