Margo Price has released her new music video for “A Little Pain” and it’s sure to resonate with anyone who’s ever had to endure a service industry job. Directed by Mike Dempsey and Joshua Shoemaker, the clip features Price playing an underpaid and underappreciated diner waitress with a creepy boss. The video was shot at Nashville’s historic Elliston Place Soda Shop.
The video shows Price dealing with unruly patrons, putting liquor in her coffee and using a little herbal medicine to get through another day on the job. The diner shots are interspersed with clips of Price and her band jamming in a laundromat.
The role comes naturally to Price, who spent years paying her dues in Nashville while working for tips. According to Price, playing a “diner waitress with a low life boss” wasn’t a stretch. “I prepared for this role my entire life,” Price wrote on Twitter.
The clip ends with Price getting revenge on that low life boss who harasses her. It’s something any dreamer with a day job can relate to. And we all know it worked out for Margo Price in the end.

This isn’t the first time Price has showed off her star power in a cinematic video. She recently starred in the music video for Little Bandit’s “Platform Shoes.” Her previous music video for her song “Weakness” featured her leading a high-speed police chase and leaving a trail of destruction in her wake.
“A Little Pain” is the lead single from Price’s critically acclaimed sophomore album All American Made.
Price is currently on tour across the U.S.
