Fresh off releasing her acclaimed new LP Midwest Farmer’s Daughter, country singer Margo Price visited Saturday Night Live to perform a pair of her honky-tonkin’, hard-livin’ anthems as musical guest on the show’s Russell Crowe-hosted episode.
First, the East Nashville singer and her backing band delivered the boozy breakup track “Hurtin’ (On the Bottle).” Price followed that up later in the episode with an intimate, aching take on “Since You Put Me Down.”
In a recent Rolling Stone profile on Price, the Third Man Records signee and country badass talked about her long journey before recording her breakthrough album.
Price, whose music recalls similarly well-traveled, authentic-sounding country singers like Chris Stapleton and Jason Isbell, told Rolling Stone, “A lot of people like mainstream country because they’re not given another option of country music to like that’s modern. Much of the record is me giving the finger to the music business. I’m curious how I’ll be accepted in those circles now.”
