Answer

Use This:

 Geocoder geocoder = new Geocoder(this, Locale.getDefault());
 List<Address> addresses = geocoder.getFromLocation(MyLat, MyLong, 1);
 String cityName = addresses.get(0).getAddressLine(0);
 String stateName = addresses.get(0).getAddressLine(1);
 String countryName = addresses.get(0).getAddressLine(2);
