Midland Does High-Fashion Country at the 2018 Grammys

In case you haven’t heard, Midland is the coolest music trio to hit the country scene. Equal parts heartthrobs and fashion risk-takers, band members Mark Wystrach, Cameron Duddy and Jess Carson didn’t disappoint by bringing their style A-game to the 2018 Grammy Awards in New York City tonight. The country men didn’t spiffy up in a traditional sense for the event, though—instead, they embraced their country music vibe with three unique takes on classic suiting.

The bandmates—who are nominated for two Grammys tonight (Best Country Song and Best Country Duo/Group Performance)—wore custom suits with floral and western-style embroidery. Lead singer Wystrach’s suit particularly featured parrot-inspired embroidery applied overtop a dark navy blazer, a motif he carried onto his cowboy hat, which had feathers appliquéd onto the front.

Jasmine Thompson Debuts “Words” Music Video

Music has always been a part of Jasmine Thompson’s life, but the 16-year-old considers the internet to be the true key in transforming her passion from a hobby to her career. After sharing her YouTube covers online, the UK-based musician soon found herself with an online following that quickly skyrocketed into a huge fan base. Soon, she was sharing original songs with her listeners, and by 2015, she had signed with Atlantic Records and had released her first official single into the world. It’s the kind of success story that dreams are made of, and proof that it’s always a good idea to chase down your goals — no matter how big they might seem.

Corey Harper Proves He's 'No Good Alone' in New Video: Premiere

Los Angeles pop-rock troubadour Corey Harper gained considerable traction with last year’s On the Run EP, scoring major festival appearances and a highly coveted Instagram endorsement from Justin Bieber. Today (Sept. 21), Billboard is premiering “No Good Alone,” a sunny, retrofitted pop-rock nugget that celebrates the simple pleasure of spending a lazy day with the person you love.

Harper, a professed classic rock and soul disciple, lays down tasteful John Mayer-esque licks over a relaxed backbeat, creating plenty of space for his smoky, understated vocals. The video shows him whiling away a gorgeous day inside his Venice Beach house with actress Daniele Ifrah.

XYLØ Goes for a Surprise Twist Ending in 'Alive' Video: Exclusive Premiere

XYLO figured they would pull a surprise ending to the new video for “Alive,” and it’s a keeper. “We initially had concerns the ending was going to come across as too sad and dark for how upbeat the song was,” says Paige Duddy, who comprises one-half of the brother-sister duo with Chase. “It ended up turning out the opposite.”

The Los Angeles band burst into mainstream consciousness with 2015’s “America,” the title track of an EP released the following year that’s accrued 2.44 million listens on SoundCloud. Since then, they’ve had a strong rise, guesting on The Chainsmokers‘ “Setting Fires,” which peaked at No. 8 on the Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, and the inclusion of “America,” which was featured in a campaign video for Kendall and Kylie Jenner’s PacSun clothing line in 2014.
