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.”
