Midland Told Tim McGraw ‘No’


Can you imagine having to turn down one of country music’s biggest superstars? It’s a tough decision that Midland had to make.

In a recent interview with Cody Alan, the “Burn Out” singers shared how they once had to decline an invite politely.

"We just flew in from doing four dates with Tim McGraw and Faith Hill up in Canada,” says Mark Wystrach of the group. “Tim asked us to come on stage and sing “Dixieland Delight” with him like we did in Edmonton, and we had to tell Tim McGraw “NO.”

Granted, their reason to decline had merit.

“We said, no, because we had to drive 3 hours to Regina. We can say that because it’s a real place,” laughs Cameron Duddy.

“With six guys, four guitars, and suitcases. It was ridiculous. Then, to catch a red-eye, which wasn’t really a red-eye because we had to connect in the middle of the flight and go through customs in Toronto,” says Mark. “So, I would sleep for an hour, get off the plane, go through customs, try and sleep for like an hour. It’s the age-old tale of musicians. We aren’t complaining.”

Thankfully, this wasn’t a make-or-break moment for the singers and their relationship with the power couple.

“Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are maybe two of the biggest class acts that we have ever met,” Jess Carson concludes.
