Margo Price grew up in the small town of Aledo, Illinois, a rural farming community that would shape her as a person and an artist. In 2016, she burst onto the Americana scene with a soulful, deeply personal album called "Midwest Farmer's Daughter." The songs have a timeless quality, especially in the singer's old-school country voice, but they also tell stories of loss, heartbreak, and the disappearing American dream. On this episode, Margo talks about her grandmother's cooking, rolling into Nashville with all her possessions packed on a flatbed trailer, and how she went from playing gigs at dive bars to singing with Loretta Lynn. She also talks about her new memoir, Maybe We'll Make It, which is coming out this fall from the University of Texas Press.
