Margo Price
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Margo Rae Price (born April 15, 1983) is an American country singer-songwriter based in Nashville, Tennessee. The Fader has called her “country’s next star.”[7] Her debut solo album Midwest Farmer’s Daughter was released on Third Man Records on March 25, 2016.[8][9] The album was recorded at Sun Studio in Memphis, Tennessee, and was engineered by Matt Ross-Spang. The album was recorded in three days.[10] On tour, she is backed by her band the Pricetags.


Price grew up in the small town of Aledo, Illinois,[6] where she played piano and sang in church choir before studying dance and theater at Northern Illinois University.[11][12] She dropped out of school in 2003, at age 20, and moved to Nashville, Tennessee.[13]


In Nashville, Price worked a number of jobs including waiting tables, installing and removing residential siding, and teaching children dance at a YMCA.[13] Price and her husband, guitarist Jeremy Ivey, were part of Secret Handshake, a band that only played political songs before she and Ivey started Buffalo Clover and later formed Margo and the Pricetags, which she says was “supposed to be a supergroup.”[11] Sturgill Simpson and Kenny Vaughan, longtime guitarist in Marty Stuart’s band, have both been in the lineup at various times.[11]

Bob Boilen | November 28, 2016 — When I greeted Margo Price in the NPR garage before her Tiny Desk performance, tears were streaming down her face. It was Wednesday morning, Nov. 9, the day after the 2016 election. For her — as for many Americans — it was a stunning and bewildering moment in time, a day when life and the everyday took on new meaning. And so when she and her band began to play “All American Made,” a song she’s sung many times before, those words about America’s changes and failures in the 21st century seemed even more powerful.

Continuing From Wikipedia

Margo Price is a Nashville-based musician, the sort of country artist that captures the hearts of those both inside and outside the country-music scene. Her debut album, Midwest Farmer’s Daughter, is one of the brightest moments in country in a very strong year. As this Tiny Desk progresses, even “Four Years Of Chances,” her song of a love gone wrong, feels less about a lousy husband and more about presidential politics. She dedicates her third and final song, “About To Find Out,” to Donald Trump; she says it was originally written about a “musician acquaintance of mine who’s a complete sociopath.” When the song ends, she rips open her red cowboy shirt to reveal a T-shirt with the words “Icky Trump”— a play on the title of The White Stripes’ song “Icky Thump,” which criticizes the U.S.’s immigration policies. She smiles, wipes a tear away: It seems cathartic, but temporary.


Price has been described by Rolling Stone Country as “a fixture of the East Nashville music community,”[8] and appeared on that publication’s list of Country Artists You Need to Know in 2014.[14] Fellow Nashville musician Aaron Lee Tasjan calls her “a singular and vital part of this scene, as a thing unto herself.”[13] In 2015, she provided backing vocals to the song “Prohibition Rose” from The Limestone Kid album by Parker McCollum.
