Midland have released their cover of Jerry Reed's "East Bound and Down” after performing the Smokey and the Bandit theme at the 2018 CMA Awards on Wednesday. “The way Burt Reynolds and Jerry Reed operated, they’re having the best f**king time. But they took the work seriously, and were there to make the best possible film they could,” band member Mark Wystrach tells Rolling Stone Country. “It’s just like us: We take everything seriously, but we’re also the biggest jokesters you’ve ever seen.” Midland performed the track in honor of the Reynolds, who starred inSmokey and the Bandit and passed away earlier this year.
