Credit good timing or the muscle of their major label, but Midland's idiosyncratic retro vibe struck gold in 2017, giving them a major hit single with "Drinkin' Problem." Since their neon-lit country clicked the first time around, it makes sense the Midland would double down on their '80s vintage on their second album, 2019's Let It Roll. Once again working with producers Josh Osborne, Shane McAnally, and Dann Huff, the trio from Dripping Springs, Texas continue to fuse the mellow vibes of middle-aged Merle with the casual confidence of George Strait. This time around, Midland dials back the twangy snap that gave 2017's On the Rocks the occasional kick.
