Monday, July 29th: MARGO PRICE

Margo Price is an American country singer-songwriter based in Nashville, Tennessee. The Fader has called her "country's next star."

Price grew up singing in church and wound up studying dance and theater while in college. Once she reached the age of 20 in 2003, she decided to drop out and head to Nashville, where she slowly started working at a musical career while working odd jobs. She met a bassist named Jeremy Ivey and soon the two formed the group Buffalo Clover; the pair would later marry. Between 2010 and 2013, Buffalo Clover released three independent albums. Once this band split, Price assembled Margo & the Pricetags, a band with a revolving lineup that sometimes featured future alt-country star Sturgill Simpson.

Price released her solo debut, “Midwest Farmer's Daughter” in 2016 -- the LP garnered nearly unanimous critical accolades. The next year, she released her second album, “All American Made.”

Price is opening for Dawes at the Frederik Meijer Gardens on Wednesday at 6:30.
