Margo Price is THE REAL DEAL
Margo Price’s Facebook page says she plays “Modern Traditional Country.” We can confirm. At last year’s Suwannee Hulaween, we wrote:
If I were the general manager of a terrestrial country radio station, I would dump all that nonsense they play in the garbage and just play Margo Price 24/7. Nobody kicked more ass than she and her band did. Four guitars! Incredible! She opened with “Been to the Mountain” and followed up with “461 Days.”
Her music stands firmly at the intersection of country, outlaw, and rock, and she and her band do justice to each. There was some mention of the female orgasm before “Tennessee Song.” The piano player was a star all set long. She was struttin’ the stage in her beautiful long dress, singing “Don’t Say You Love Me When You Treat Me This Way” (it’s probably some abbreviation of that). FABULOUS!
We said precisely the same thing last February when she crushed a similar set at Gasparilla Music Festival in Tampa. Margo Price is THE REAL DEAL.
Price and her crack band have a blistering 26-date ‘Til the Wheels Fall Off tour beginning Monday, January 30, at The Orange Peel in Asheville through their show March 9 at Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Also scheduled are appearances at Treefort Music Fest in Boise, Long Story Short: Willie Nelson’s 90th birthday celebration in L.A., and Jackalope Jamboree in Pendleton. In August, Price will open three huge sold-out shows for Tyler Childers.
More to come.
In the meantime, jettison that bro-country garbage and check in on Modern Traditional Country with Margo Price, THE REAL DEAL. Her new album Strays is superb.
