Jeff's Best of 2016 - #6: Margo Price - Midwest Farmer's Daughter

My #6 album is Margo Price's Midwest Farmer's Daughter.

This one came out of nowhere for me. The retro classic country sound has been making a lot of waves, and Jack White's Third Man Records is really putting out quality stuff in this area, and Margo Price is no different in that regard. It feels classic and timeless while still having that raw quality to it that keeps it sounding fresh. The melodies here stick in my head all the time, and there's not a bad song on the album. And basically? The only thing keeping this from being the album of the year for me is because of how much good music has come out in 2016.

If you've slept on this up until now, you still have a chance to come around. If you like classic country at all, you just need to drop what you're doing and give this a shot.

Recommended songs: "Hurtin' (On the Bottle)," "Four Years of Chances," "This Town Gets Around"
