Margo Price: Exclusive

Margo Price has never given up her dreams. After leaving college to pursue music full-time in 2003, the Tennessee native dropped out to pursue it full-time; slowly but surely her career took off following 2016’s Midwest Farmer’s Daughter for Jack White’s Third Man Records. Since then she has made appearances on CBS Morning Show, Late Late Show with Sharon Van Etten and hosted live CMT Crossroads event alongside Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats; written a memoir; celebrated Willie Nelson at Newport Folk Festival; released two country-rockers with her band The Pricetags; reigned 14 weeks at No.1 Americana radio with “Change of Heart”, plus much more.

On her 2023 album Strays, singer-songwriter Kelly Willis continues her experimental musical exploration beyond traditional country and folk aesthetics and into psychedelia and dreamlike territory, resulting in an album that defies categorization. While songs such as ‘Hurtin’ On the Bottle’ and ‘I Would Die for You’ give an indication of her past musical direction, Willis clearly wants to express herself without conforming to expectations; rather, she wants to simply be herself.
