Midwest Farmer's Daughter by Margo Price
When I rolled out of town on the unpaved road, I was fifty-seven dollars from bein' broke . . .
That's the opening line from Margo Price's Midwest Farmer's Daughter and when you hear deliver that line in her neo-traditionalist country voice, you're hooked. You know you're in for a good story.
The album is part auto-biography, part myth. The album is full of her hardships and heartaches, sorrows and strengths, the best and worst of humanity. Like so many of the great country singers before her, her voice is beautifully feminine and strong at the same time. Comparisons to Dolly Parton would be appropriate.
Highlight tracks include the honky-tonk number "About To Find Out," the country rock "Hurtin' (On The Buttle)," and "This Town Gets' Around," which has a rockabilly vibe.
I'm adding "Hands Of Time," "About To Find Out," "Since You Put Me Down," "Four Years Of Chances," and "This Town Gets Around" to rotation.
