Rising star Margo Price fuses Nashville country, Memphis soul and Texas twang while challenging country conventions through brutally honest, beautifully poetic portraits of everyday life.
“One of the most compelling country talents to come out of Nashville in recent memory” — Vulture
In 2015, Margo Price called it a win if she had enough gas in the tank to make her next gig. By 2016, she was among country music’s most celebrated new artists. Price’s debut album, Midwest Farmer’s Daughter, made numerous top-10 lists; NPR called it “the hard-won arrival of an artist who feels like she’s always been here.” Her 2017 follow-up, All American Made, earned widespread acclaim and a 2019 Grammy® nomination for Best New Artist. Price’s voice is a brassy, sassy clarion call to wry, weary, and wise stories of heartache and determination. Fusing Nashville country, Memphis soul and Texas twang, she tips her cap to Waylon, Willie, Loretta and Dolly while challenging country conventions through brutally honest, beautifully poetic portraits of everyday life.
