Amazon Music’s original podcast Set it Straight: Myths and Legends from country trendsetters Midland will premiere weekly starting August 25. Country Music is full of tall tales and legends. Fortunately, the boys of GRAMMY-nominated band Midland will separate fact from fiction, every Wednesday on their new podcast Set It Straight: Myths and Legends, as they attempt to uncover the truth behind infamous stories from the history of country music.
The season premiere will feature Garth Brooks as he joins Midland to uncover what really happened at the 1996 Fan Fair during his marathon encounter. Upcoming guests who will help the Midland boys dig into other wild country lore include Martina McBride, Darius Rucker, Wynonna Judd, Jake Brennan and more as they set the record straight on what’s real and what is simply a legend of Country’s past and present. Listen to the trailer here.
Midland lead singer Mark Wystrach said: “Set It Straight: Myths and Legends is a chance for us to delve into the fascinating folklore and fables of country music and around and gives us an excuse to hang out and chat about informal way with some of our greatest musical and artistic heroes.”
Midland bassist/vocalist Cameron Duddy added: “It’s a real Cinderella country story: Martina McBride went from selling merchandise for Garth Brooks to supporting Garth Brooks seemingly overnight. Is that true? We had to talk to the legend himself to find out.”
