” The CMA ignored Margo Price at their 50th awards show in November, but they did so at their own peril. This Illinois troublemaker’s debut album, released on Jack White’s Third Man Records, is a marvel from a modern outlaw. Price lays it all bare, singing in her Loretta Lynn yodel about the death of a child in “Hands of Time,” her skeevy experiences with Nashville music men in “This Town Gets Around” and, in “Weekender,” even a stint in the can. In a town where “honest” and “authentic” are thrown around to suggest credibility, Price needn’t even speak the words, she just lives them. J.H.” – Rolling Stone
Last night, Price was the musical guest on Late Night With Seth Meyers, and she and her band cranked right through the honky tonk anthem “About To Find Out,” one of the highlights from her debut album Midwest Farmer’s Daughter. There are, as ever, a lot of people out there playing around with the signifiers of ancestral country music, but very few of them are doing it with this sort of spirit and flair. Check out the performance below.
Midwest Farmer’s Daughter is out now on Third Man.
‘There’s a lot of things happening, and that’s great. Putting my nose to the grindstone, I want to take advantage of every opportunity. And there’ve been a lot of shows. When we go out to play, there definitely seems to be a buzz and an energy in the room.’
