Last night, Margo Price wrapped up her three-night run at the legendary Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee. During her stand, which took place Saturday, Sunday, and Wednesday of this week, the 35-year-old welcomed an impressive roster of special guests.
On the first night of her Ryman residency, Price was joined by Sturgill Simpson for a cover of Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty‘s 1971 “After the Fire is Gone” on Saturday. During the same show, Lukas Nelson, son of Willie Nelson and vocalist/guitarist of Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, joined Price for a duet of her own “Learning to Lose” from All American Made, which features Willie on the studio version.
The Americana superstar’s second show took place on Sunday night and featured a very special guest performance from Jack White. The two Nashville-based artists collaborated on 2007’s “Honey We Can’t Afford to Look This Cheap” by the White Stripes.
“Margo and I are gonna do a song I wrote on an airplane a few years ago,” White said explained to the audience. “It’s about songwriters living in Nashville. Maybe some of you could understand.”
Margo Price is signed to Jack White’s Third Man Records, so the collaboration wasn’t totally shocking–although White certainly isn’t known for surprise sit-ins, only adding to the point that Margo Price is deeply respected within her scene. Following the success of her sophomore album, All American Made, Price has received national praise for her singing and songwriting and is widely recognized as one of the best new artists in Americana.
Last night, to closer her three-night stand, Margo Price once again welcomed Sturgill Simpson to the stage, who was joined by 14-time Grammy-winning vocalist Emmylou Harris.
