    Margo Price - congratulations on #1 album!

    I was delighted to hear that Margo Price has topped the UK Official Country Albums chart with "Midwest Farmer's Daughter".

    It may not last - (Blake Shelton has debuted at number 2 and may take the next top spot) - but it is a milestone achievement for a singer who resolutely pursues her vision of traditional Country. (It's causing excitement among some of the Twitter crowd, who are making favourable comments on our musical taste!) She has made a short tour here, and late night host Jools Holland joined her band to play along with them when she guested on his show.

    I love her voice, and admire her perseverance with music that tends to get nowhere on Music Row. If anyone would care to check her out I'd recommend these videos:

    I've heard some of her songs and seen some of her performances as well. I'm delighted to have her in the current crowd of people who are going against the grain (which is ironic because they are the ones who are truly sticking to it). I do not, unfortunately, see her gaining momentum in the US like Ashley Monroe, Kacey Musgraves and Brandy Clark, perhaps due to an a Americana influecne. They've been able to make some mark despite no radio success, but I feel like Margo will remain underrated. I do hope that she is surprises us by being nominated in the upcoming awards season. That might help her gain some following.
