Margo Price

Illinois born and raised Margo Price should be county music's next star - whether or not she will be, time will tell but she's been getting a lot of buzz for her debut album on Jack White's label Third Man Records, Midwest Farmers Daughter, and with good reason. Sometimes, her voice sounds similar to Tammy Wynette and other times, it's Loretta Lynn or George Jones. It definitely has a range where depending on the song and the lyrics, she's one or the other. Price has been living in Nashville, TN. for almost a decade performing open mics and playing with other bands (her most popular band being Buffalo Clover,) but has never gotten that big break until she sent a copy of Midwest Farmers Daughter to Third Man, performed on Saturday Night Live this April and the rest, as they say, is history. Price is definitely an "artist to watch" and if you're into old school country and bluegrass, I recommend her very highly. You can listen to her single, "Hurtin' on the Bottle" down below.
