2016 was a big year for one of country music's rising stars: Margo Price. She released her debut record, Midwest Farmer’s Daughter, on Third Man Records, made her television debut on Saturday Night Live, and reached #1 on the UK charts. Tonight she carries that buzz into a performance at St. Cecilia Music Center, as part of the Acoustic Cafe Folk Series.
Margo Price moved to Nashville after dropping out of Northern Illinois University at the age of 20 to pursue music. There she met husband and bandmate Jeremy Ivey and quickly carved out a notch as a fixture in the East Nashville music community.
Price has often drawn comparisons to Loretta Lynn and Tammy Wynette. Her album was recorded live to analog tape at legendary Sun Studio in Memphis, giving a warmth and familiar energy to the sound. It was produced and engineered by Matt Ross-Spang who has worked with Zac Brown, Drive By Truckers, and Jason Isbell.
