Margo Price – A Grammy-Nominated Americana Singer-Songwriter
Midwest Farmer’s Daughter
Midwest Farmer’s Daughter is the first full-on country album released on Third Man Records, which is run by Jack White. The album was co-written by Price, a thirty-year-old originally from Illinois who possesses a rich songcraft and taste for retro styling. The opening track, “Hands of Time,” is a six-minute memoir-style tune that’s wrapped in lush strings.

Midwest Farmer’s Daughter has received critical praise for its unique mix of hipness and country. The album is filled with a rousing anti-establishment song and other fun, unusual moments for a country album. The band is very good and the song “Hands of Time” is an outstanding performance. However, there’s little to no sense of goodwill throughout the album.
All American Made
Margo Price’s second solo album, All American Made, is an impressive extension of her musical capabilities. The album features twelve new songs and an upbeat, wry tone. The lyrics deal with issues like errant lovers, double standards, and the “cocaine cowboys.”
Recorded at Sam Phillips Recording in Memphis, Tennessee, All American Made features a duet with Willie Nelson on “Learning to Lose.” The album also features background vocals from The McCrary Sister on “Do Right By Me.” The album was produced by Matt Ross-Spang and Alex Munoz.
The new album Strays by Margo Price is a multi-genre record about price’s journey from drinking to sober. It was produced by Price and Jonathan Wilson at Topanga Canyon’s Fivestar Studio. The duo wrote most of the songs on the album during the week-long session. They then took a mushroom trip to South Carolina. After finishing recording Strays, Price and Wilson began a podcast called Runaway Horses.
The album is the fourth studio album from the singer-songwriter. It’s set to be released on January 13 via Loma Vista Recordings. Strays deals with themes of self-image and self-worth, topics that Price is familiar with, particularly after quitting drinking. She also collaborated with Mike Campbell, Sharon Van Etten, and Lucius for the album.
