Singer/songwriter Margo Price heard her calling young. After attending Northern Illinois University for theater and dance, she dropped out and relocated to Nashville in 2003.
She played around town and worked on the side to support herself and her husband, guitarist Jeremy Ivey. But it would take several more years before her debut album, 2016's Midwest Farmer's Daughter, arrived.
The autobiographical album wove together strains of traditional country, honky tonk, rock 'n' roll and other genres to create a stage for Price's honest lyricism and distinctive voice.
The album soon landed on several prominent end-of-year lists and earned Price a win at the Americana Awards for Emerging Artist of the Year.
Price followed that success with the EP Weakness in 2017. That same year, she released her sophomore album, All American Made. In 2019, she was nominated for Best New Artist at the Grammys.
In 2020, Price's third album That's How Rumors Get Started arrived. Her longtime friend Sturgill Simpson served as producer. Price wrote the project while pregnant, which she's credited with influencing its subject matter and direction.
Fans of quality roots music may know the name David Ferguson from all the artists he’s worked with; engineering and producing classic and Grammy-winning records, including Sturgill Simpson’s ground-breaking A Sailor’s Guide To Earth. Now, that’s about to change.
