Margo Price reveals her musical journey in the current issue of Uncut, dated October 2016 and out now.

The Nashville-based country singer and songwriter released her debut solo album, Midwest Farmer’s Daughter, on Jack White‘s Third Man label earlier this year, after overcoming the death of her child, and time in jail for drink-driving.

“The first 27 years of my life weren’t a walk in the park, so I look at the positives,” she tells Uncut. “I have a healthy baby at home. I have a husband who loves me. I have the God-given gift to sing. Those three things have kept me going, but also just the lack of knowing what the hell else to do. I knew that this was my true calling, so I had to keep going until I either lost my mind or somebody said, ‘Hey, you’re good!'”


Uncut travelled to Nashville for a night on the town with Price and husband Jeremy Ivey, for a feature published in the current issue.

Discussing her honest, autobiographical songs, Price says: “Sometimes it’s painful to wear your heart on your sleeve and go through those details night after night, but hopefully it’s helping somebody else out there who might not have someone to talk to.”

The new issue of Uncut is out now.
