Margo Price - "Hurtin' (On the Bottle)"

Margo Price is going to be a tough one to categorize for most people. She's definitely country, like real country as opposed to whatever passes for mainstream country now. She's too mainstream and polished to be considered outlaw country. But she's not a throwback to the days of Johnny Cash or Patsy Cline. Margo Price is straight outta the sparkling, rhinestone 70s country of Dolly Parton and Gram Parsons. I think her only current contemporary would be Jason Isbell. She's raw enough for the alt-country crowd but accessible enough for your mom to like her.

Margo Price's debut album, Midwest Farmer's Daughter, will be out March 25 on Third Man Records. You can listen to "Hurtin' (On the Bottle)" below. For more information, please check out her website. She also happens to be playing the aforementioned Green River Festival this year. Get your tickets for that here.
