We’re not usually ones for country music…not usually, but true country—the stuff that continues to point back to the old time greats and doesn’t veer pop—that stuff sometimes gets us.
Case in point, Margo Price, out of (you guessed it) Nashville. She’s got that authentic country twang and deep, deep soul that she puts into her lyrics and that simply can’t be ignored in her utterly impressive voice. And he backing band is fucking tight.
Our friend Becky turned us on to herald we got a chance to catch her in the intimate setting of the hotel cafe—hard country in the heart of Hollywood. She’s blowing up a bit of late after a run at SXSW and it sounds like it’s some well-deserved success after years of rough times and struggle in the industry.
Price sat down with NPR’s David Greene while she was in town—you can hear that interview below, but first, check out her single “Hurtin’ (On the Bottle)”.
