On the Rocks will feature Midland's certified-gold song "Drinkin' Problem," as well as tracks such as "Lonely for You Only, "Nothin’ New Under the Neon, "Burn Out and "At Least You Cried.

Melodically reminiscent of Train's 2001 hit, "Drops of Jupiter," "Check Cashin' Country" joins pop rock, classic rock and alt-rock with modern country
