Rising artist Margo Price set the Grand Ole Opry on fire with her rocking performance of “Hurtin’ On the Bottle” earlier this month.
Although she’s been writing and performing her own version of old-school country music for years, Price has rapidly become one of the most-talked about new artists in the genre. One of the first East Nashville newcomers to bring back fringe-and-sparkle-covered outfits and steel guitar-driven country, Price has always been ahead of the times. After catching the eye of Jack White and inking a deal with Third Man Records, she’s been busy promoting the upcoming release of Midwest Farmer’s Daughter, which included a debut performance at the Grand Ole Opry.
The moment was an important one for Price, who looked right at home while performing on the historic stage. There have been many newcomers who make it to the Opry stage but quickly fizzle out. Unlike others, Price knows herself and has crafted a sound that reaches farther beyond whatever country-pop anthem is climbing up the charts. She’s got talent and moxie, and both will likely help lead her back to the Opry stage sooner rather than later.
