Spotlight: Margo Price

Born in Aledo, Ill., Margo Price moved to Nashville after dropping out of college in 2003. There, she met musician and future husband, Jeremy Ivey, and formed a band called Buffalo Clover who would eventually develop a local following. But it was personal tragedy (losing her firstborn son to a heart ailment) that brought Price's calling into even sharper focus, leading to her debut LP, Midwest Farmer's Daughter — released on March 25 on Jack White's Third Man Records. Tracks like album opener "Hands of Time," "About To Find Out," and "Hurtin' (On The Bottle)" add a fresh twist to classic Nashville country, with a sound that could've made hits in any decade. Meanwhile, the hard-hitting blues grooves of "Four Years of Chances" and "Tennessee Song" push the boundaries further west to Memphis (the album was recorded at the legendary Sun Studio). Midwest Farmer's Daughter has been met with historic praise, performances on "Saturday Night Live," "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," Conan, CBS This Morning, and major profiles with the The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, NPR, Fader, and more. It also debuted in the Top 10 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart — the first time in history that a solo female artist's first album has debuted in the Top 10 without the benefit of a single on the Hot Country Songs chart. Currently in the midst of a headlining U.S. tour, the GRAMMY Museum welcomes Margo Price to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate conversation surrounding her debut album, tumultuous life and rising career, moderated by Scott Goldman, Vice President of the GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares. The conversation will be followed by a special acoustic performance.
