Jack White’s latest discovery is right out of Nashville.
Margo Price released her debut album ‘Midwest Farmer’s Daughter’ through White’s Third Man Records in the USA in March. It is about to be released in Australia.
The album made Top 10 on Billboard’s Country Chart and went on to win the Ameripolitan Music Award for Honky Tonk Female for Margo.
Margo Price comes from a musical lineage with her style compared to Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton and with the White touch, a dose of Loretta Lynn and Tammy Wynette in there as well. Both Loretta and Tammy have also been given a modern-day tune-up by Jack White.
Margo Price performed ‘Four Years of Chances’ for Jimmy Fallon last week.
She spoke of how she wrote the song ‘Four Years Of Chances’.
Price has her own life to source for song inspiration. “I lost my firstborn son to a heart ailment,” Price says, “and I was really down and depressed. I was drinking too much. I was definitely lost. I did some things that I regret very much now that resulted in a brush with the law. Thank god I had my friends and family to keep me going. Coming through that, I thought, ‘I’m just going to write music that I want to hear.’ It was a big turning point.”
Warner Music will release ‘Midwest Farmer’s Daughter’ on 29 July 2016.
