I walked into Moon Dog Records in Dubuque, Iowa yesterday, which sells old (and new) CD's and vinyl, looking for something good to listen to while driving. They have thousands of CD's, and it's a cool place and the owners are cool guys. I was prepared to start tediously combing through the piles of music, when I realized the music they had playing in the store was really great. I mean, like, GREAT music! I said to the owner, "Who's this?" pointing to the speakers on the wall. "That's Margo Price," he said and went and got another copy and handed it to me. "Are all the songs this good?" I asked him. "Yup," was all he said. I said, "I'll take it." Then he said, "I think she's on Saturday Night Live this weekend."
I listened to the entire CD in my car and, sure enough, every single song was as good as every single other song and they were all out of this world. That is rarely true. Usually they have one or two good songs. Every song on Midwest Farmers Daughter is great.
I got home and Googled Margo Price and, sure enough, she's on Saturday Night Live tonight. And the most amazing thing is that she's from Aledo, Illinois, a stone's throw away from my home town.
This girl's gonna be great, but I can see she probably is going to have a tough time handling the music business for too long, at least their way. Good luck, Margo Price. Be true to You! Do it your way.

Great singing. Reminds me of Loretta Lynn and Tammy Wynette and maybe a little Jenny Lewis Rabbit Fur Coat all mixed togehter. Great sound and appropriately cliche lyrics like a good ol' country tune should have!! Super.

Honestly one of the best albums I have heard from beginning to end in a long time. The music is reminiscent of old country, yet has an updated beat, base runs, and sound engineering. The album was captivating. Margo's voice is great, and she has a real sense of tone and feeling; it comes off as authentic. It has a great mix of instrumentation from pianos, mandolins, background strings, steel pedal guitar, etc. I highly recommend listening to this album.

Best album of 2016 so far -- and will be on all the Best Of lists at year end. This is an incredible Americana/County debut -- filled with rich songs and beautiful singing, humor and sharp points. First country recording on Jack White's label. Wow!!!

Some of the people here talk about the petty, boring musicians on this cd. I couldn't agree more. With the use of simple rhythms and boring licks/chords, who do these folks think they are, the Tennessee 3? Or, are then an actual bar band?? How dare they... And, all of those cheesy country lyrics...who does Margo get her inspiration from?? Maybe some slacker like Loretta Lynn or Tammy Wynette...

So, yeah, if you're into country/pop/American Idol/screaming crap, this isn't the CD for you. However, if you're like me, and you pine for the days of listening to the smart "simpleton" lyrics of folks like Roger Miller, Willie Nelson, Loretta, or any number of classic country musicians, well, brother, you need to buy, Buy, BUY!! Although this is a studio recording, I could easily feel this being a live recording from any great musicians bar...and I would LOVE to hear a live album next *hint-hint*

Seriously...this cd gave me hope that country (which for YEARS has been my least hated genre of modern music) has hope to survive. And, as a child of the mid-west myself, and having endured a lifetime of my parents listening to LP's of Charley Pride, the Statler Brothers, and so many other greats, this is like growing up on Sunday afternoon all over again. Three cheers for this great album!!

Margo Price's MIDWEST FARMER'S DAUGHTER is hard to describe. Oh, I can gloss it over: traditional country meets 70's folk/pop meets alternative country, underlaced with a healthy dose of sarcasm and nihilism. It's an album that revolves around looking at the past, and being uneasy about where you currently are. It's an album about resorting to alcohol--and other vices--to deal with the strains of an everyday life, set to acoustic and steel guitars, steady drums, and Price's sweet-n-sour twang.

But that doesn't capture the feel of the album. There's not a single track here I didn't immediately want to go back and listen to...except maybe "Four Years of Chances," if only because I'd already heard it two or three times in the past couple days (moderation is key to a satisfied life, a lesson Price's characters would do well to learn). Much like the more mainstream Kacey Musgraves (I wince a little at the comparison, though it's somewhat appropriate), Price writes and sings about the seedier side of small town life; or, as she puts it, "I don't write the s*** that gets bought and sold." Here is a singer/songwriter (and I can't think the last time I described a new artist that way, as though I were talking about Kristofferson or Tom Waits) who knows not only what she wants to say, but how she wants to say it. MIDWEST FARMER'S DAUGHTER is undeniably country; and yet, the fact that it's gotten so much commercial airplay surprises me, because this is an album that has "underground success" written all over it. But, hell, if more people convert, maybe Nashville as a whole will start putting out better music. And with that, somewhere, Price is laughing as she sips her whiskey.
