Midland

Possibly the most stylishly dressed band at C2C, Midland's quality harmonies and vintage country glam provided a stand-out arena performance. The group, hailing from Dripping Springs, Texas, kicked things off with "Check Cashin' Country," a tale about touring clubs in the days before the O2 came calling. Vocalist Mark Wystrach, guitarist Jess Carson and bass player Cameron Duddy were a tight-knit unit, offering a sampling of their debut LP On the Rocks. Along with "At Least You Cried," "More Than a Fever" and their breakthrough hit "Drinkin' Problem," the trio also found space to include Tom Petty's "American Girl." At one moment, they were even pointing out mustaches on display in the crowd, adding a touch of cowboy humanity to their outsized neon personalities.
