Midland’s Mark Wystrach is taking all of the necessary steps to finalize details for his upcoming wedding before it’s time to say “I do.”
The trio’s lead singer recently proposed to his beautiful girlfriend, Tyler Haney. The couple announced their engagement on Instagram with an identical slideshow of photos featuring the bride-to-be’s stunning diamond ring.
Now, it turns out that Wystrach got down on one knee for a completely different reason – to ask his bandmates, Cameron Duddy and Jess Carson, to be his groomsmen. The incredible moment happened on the red (blue) carpet, ahead of the 2019 CMT Music Awards on Wednesday, June 5.
“Jess, Cameron, would you guys officially be in my wedding? Be my groomsmen? And also be my bit—s that will do everything that I ask because I will be a groomzilla? It’s my wedding,” Wystrach hilariously asked, pausing the band’s interview with People.
The singer’s buddies, of course, said “yes” to his request with Carson adding, “That’s how it happens too. I asked Cameron to be in my wedding and he goes, ‘Obviously, I’m your best man.’”
So far, Wystrach and Haney have not yet set a wedding date, but from the sounds of it, the ceremony is going to be one for the books! In fact, the frontman of the Grammy-nominated trio plans on tying the knot at his family’s ranch.
Wedding plans aside, Midland, who broke out onto the country scene with their No. 1 debut album, On The Rocks, is set to release their highly anticipated follow up album later this year. The project, titled Let It Roll, is slated to be released August 23. Fans already got a taste of the forthcoming album with the rollicking lead single, “Mr. Lonely,” which the band co-wrote alongside Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne.
“Everything we’ve learned out on the road touring On The Rocks is all right here on this album,” Wystrach stated in a press release about the album, produced by Dann Huff, McAnally and Osborne. “These songs are deeply personal and from the heart.”
