Singer/Songwriter Drew Baldridge has released a dynamic new single, titled “Middle Of Nowhere Kids,” following an exclusive premiere on Billboard. Acting as an anthem for people everywhere, Baldridge pulls from his Patoka, Illinois upbringing for inspiration, where the “raised on a John Deere plowboys” call home and the population tops out at 582. “Middle Of Nowhere Kids” will impact radio on July 29.
Co-written by Randy Montana (Riley Green, Cody Johnson), John Pierce (Reba, Chris Young), and Tony Lane (Luke Bryan, Cody Johnson) and produced by Chris Stevens (Blake Shelton), “Middle of Nowhere Kids” breaks new territory for Baldridge:
“I chose this song because it hits so close to home for me. This song is very reminiscent of my life and everything I stand for.” For the first time, the singer-songwriter allows listeners deeper into his past, sharing parts of his life that have made him the person he is today, “I was that ‘Middle Of Nowhere Kid’ riding a tractor and dreaming of what it would be like to hear my music on the radio one day. Now the world gets to hear my story. I’m proud to be a ‘Middle of Nowhere Kid’.”
