The Academy of Country Music Awards’ host, iconic entertainerReba McEntire delivered Texas-sized news to Dripping Springs-based trio MIDLAND. Ahead of the April 15 live broadcast in Las Vegas, they have been named as New Vocal Duo/Group of the Year. Midland is the most-nominated debut artist this year with three total nods, also including Single of the Year for their GRAMMY®-nominated “Drinkin’ Problem” and Vocal Group of the Year.

Watch Midland’s shocking reaction to their call from Reba: 

Upon hearing the news, bass player Cameron Duddy said, “We’re blown away! This is something you don’t even let yourself dream about and now here we are, joining this prestigious list alongside our heroes. Thank you ACMs and all of our family and friends who supported us through this honky-tonk journey. And thank you Reba for delivering this news to us in such an unforgettable way.”

Over the weekend, Uproxx released a new video interview and series of performances highlighting Midland’s ascent. Titled Midland’s Dazzling Success In Country Music Was Really A Slow Burn, the content showcases the trio in their homes and from the legendary Gruene Hall stage in New Braunfels, TX. Midland will return to esteemed haunt in late May to perform two sold-out shows.

Midland recently announced the April 6 release of a Spanish version of “Drinkin’ Problem” featuring Mexico’s Jay De La Cueva. 

The third single, “Burn Out,” from their debut album ON THE ROCKS (Big Machine Records) will be officially released to Country radio on April 9.
