Margo Price is making history. Her debut LP, Midwest Farmer's Daughter, is the first time a solo female has debuted in the Top 10 without any prior releases on the Billboard Hot Country Songs ranking.
The LP sold 4000 units in its first week to debut on the Billboard Top Country Album Chart at No. 10.

If that's not enough for this gal with the engaging voice, there's more. She received a stellar review from pastemagazine. com which also named Midwest Farmer's Daughter (Third Man) as a Best 10 Album of March 2016.
She's coming across as an overnight success, but she is far from that. In show business, the overnight sensation rarely, if ever, happens. She's worked 12 years in Nashville for her current opportunity.
Margo is a 2001 graduate of Aledo IL High School. She then attended Northern Illinois University in DeKalb for two years before going to Nashville. In November 2015 she inked with Third Man Records. Her debut effort has garnered rave reviews from several music information outlets.
Her recent appearances have included the Stephen Colbert Show and the CBS Morning Show.
Her next appearance is Saturday, April 9 at 10:35 PM Central on Saturday Night Live. SNL musical guests are very rarely of the country genre, so this is a particular network television honor.

Her voice is a cross between Patsy Cline and Pam Tillis. Fresh and new, with plenty of traditional vibes. Just what country music needs.
