Midland’s lead singer/guitarist Mark Wystrach grew up in Sonoita, where his parents own the popular The Steak Out Restaurant & Saloon and graduated from Tucson’s Salpointe Catholic High School. Since coming together in 2013 at a friend’s wedding over common influences and the need for a return to this sort of post-Urban Cowboy Country, Midland have sought to reintroduce the Western plains, Laurel Canyon-cum-Bakersfield and Lone Star juke joints to country music. 

For Wystrach, bassist/vocalist Cameron Duddy and lead guitarist/vocalist Jess Carson, the double platinum hit “Drinkin’ Problem” set the stage for their critically acclaimed “On The Rocks” and No. 1 Billboard Top Country Albums debut “Let It Roll” to unite classic country fans, hipsters and media including Entertainment Weekly, GQ, The Washington Post, Vogue, Esquire, Variety, Rolling Stone Country and NPR. 

Bringing listeners a resurgence of their thick harmonies, sad melodies, tart lyrics, and steel guitar with their latest album, “The Last Resort: Greetings From” (Big Machine Records), the retro-Nuevo trio has grown from bar band to an in-demand headliner. The double Grammy® nominee trio last performed in Tucson in 2022. 

Clyne is preparing to release his 11th studio album in 2024. Together, with drummer PH Naffah, guitarist Jim Dalton and bassist Nick Scropos, the Peacemakers blend punk rock, country-western and mariachi music to create a sound that earned the band induction into the Arizona Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame in 2019. Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers have toured all over the U.S. and have achieved a faithful following through hard work and great music.  

The 2024 Cologuard Classic by Exact Sciences PGA TOUR Champions golf tournament is scheduled to be played Mar. 8-10 at La Paloma Country Club. Played each March, the Cologuard Classic kicks off national Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, which raises awareness of colorectal cancer, highlights different screening options, and honors those affected by the disease. The 2024 tournament will feature a 78-player field competing for a $2.2 million purse, with $330,000 to the winner. David Toms is the defending Cologuard Classic champion.
