Margo and Margot On The Colorado Sound
Margo Price spent the afternoon with our very own Margot for a DJ Takeover today. She shared some stories from the road, alluded to a weekend in prison after Loretta Lynn’s song “Women’s Prison, and more.
Here are some highlights from the Takeover with Margo Price:
On the Townes Van Zandt song “Where I Lead Me”: “I used to cover this song a long time ago. I keep thinking I need to bring it back.”
On recording with Willie Nelson: “I still don’t know how I pulled that off.”
She also shared a story she was told “if he’s not having a good time, and if he doesn’t like the song, you’re probably going to have only one or two takes.”
On her friendship with Nelson: “I aspire to be like him in so many ways, not just as a musician but as a human being.”
On soul icon Charles Bradley: “His presence is greatly missed today,” she said. “He was someone I greatly admired. I wish he was still around.”
On the Tom Petty and Stevie Nicks “Needles And Pins” duet: “I love the way their voices blend on this. There is so much good energy in it.”
On Billy Swan and his cover of “Don’t Be Cruel”: “He told me Elvis was actually intimidated by that cover.”
Listen to all the songs below.
Margo Price will be back in Colorado on September 4, opening for Lyle Lovett And His Large Band at Red Rocks.
