The Illinois born and Nashville based Americana, outlaw country, and country-soul singer/songwriter & multi-instrumentalist MARGO PRICE has released her third studio album, the Sturgill Simpson produced “That’s How Rumors Get Started” out via Loma Vista Records.
A great example from the album is “Letting Me Down” (video shared below) that offers sweet sad dolefulness jigged into a marinade of wistful rhythms, heartsick guitars, and supercelestial vocals.
This is a song that sounds like an exculpated Stevie Nicks doing a Tom Petty number (an accelerated Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around, perhaps?) while Maro employs some of Petty’s fatalistic nasal twang and affecting, cantankerous grimace.
Yep, this is filled with knowingness, heartgrief and (of course) disillusionment.
