Midland has long been known for their country, and the band definitely stood out from the crowd when they performed their new single on "Jimmy Kimmel Live."
For starters, it’s rare to see a country act on late-night television, but it was refreshing for "Kimmel" to invite the neotraditionalist country band from Dripping Springs, back to L.A., where the dream of making it big all started. On the show, Midland performed their latest single, “Burn Out,” which has stormed the Country charts, currently sitting at number 26 on the Billboard US Country chart.
While performing “Burn Out” on "Kimmel," Midland decided to go for a more subtle harmony, which made for a soft, but equally catchy country tune that didn’t stray away from its roots. According to Rolling Stone, Midland is in the middle of the Electric Rodeo Tour, but stopped briefly for the Country Music Awards and to perform on Kimmel.
Speaking of the CMA, Midland was nominated for three awards on country music’s biggest night, but, unfortunately, didn’t walk away with the coveted award. Being nominated, though, is a big accomplishment in itself, and that, combined with their invite to "Jimmy Kimmel Live," shows that the band has truly made it.
Make sure to catch Midland on the Electric Rodeo Tour, which includes a stop at The Novo by Microsoft in Los Angeles on Feb. 8. Click on the link above for details, and check out the performance above as well.
