(Radio.com) Midland is bringing a traditional sound to country radio thanks to their debut single, "Drinkin' Problem," so it comes across as a bit of surprise to learn that bassist Cameron Duddy is also an award-winning music director, most notably having just received several MTV Video Music Awards for co-directing Bruno Mars' "24K Magic" video. How did this collaboration come about?

"I met Bruno when I was in my early 20s," Cameron recalls in a statement from the trio's label. "My wife took his first publicity photos, and I met him then."

"He's a very loyal person, so he kept me on his team and was kind of the first person to ever take a chance on me for directing - which is something that I've wanted to do my whole life, just like playing music," he shares. Read more here.
