Before breaking through with new music in 2020, Baldridge first debuted on the country music charts with his R&B-infused single "Dance With Ya" in 2016. But sophomore single “Middle of Nowhere Kids” was really the tune that led Baldridge back to his traditional roots. Written by Tony Lane, Randy Montana, and John Pierce, "Middle of Nowhere Kids" conjures up those images of growing up in Patoka, population 550.
And as he has done for most of his career, Baldridge achieved radio success on his own terms – with extreme drive and belief in the message. As with “Senior Year,” “Middle of Nowhere Kids” became a Top 50 song with no major label help. The connection between Baldridge and his passionate fanbase is true and authentic.
