This Week’s Model — Margo Price, “Twinkle Twinkle”


Now that Margo Price has moved on from Third Man Records, it’s evidently time for her to make some music that sounds like it would have been snugly at home on Jack White’s Nashville-based label. For the lead single from her forthcoming third full-length, That’s How Rumors Get Started, Price hangs onto her pure country songwriting while adding a potent punch of nineteen-seventies classic rock guitars. Thanks the easy lilt of her vocals and evocative lyrics such as “In the back of my mama’s car/ Winding down that dirty road/ Town was close, but it felt far,” “Twinkle Twinkle” suggests the outcome if Dolly Parton had commandeered the Ozark Mountain Daredevils sometime around 1975 and never looked back.

So, yes, I’d like more of this, please and thank you.
