Americana singer-songwriter Margo Price has released a new stand-alone single titled, “Stone Me”. The relaxed tune hears the Nashville-based singer belt out blissful melodies alongside the warm and consistent strumming of an acoustic guitar for her first new original single since the arrival of All American Made in October 2017.
The smooth-flowing song features performances from Benmont Tench (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers) on piano, Pino Palladino (John Mayer Trio) on bass, James Gadson on drums, and Matt Sweeney on electric guitar.

The song’s lyrics are as self-reflective as they are affirmative, as Price sings out, “I won’t forget what it’s like to be poor/I could be there again baby that’s for sure” and “Through the mud and rain you can drag my name/You can say I’ve spent my life in vain/But I won’t be ashamed of what I am/For your judgment day I don’t give a damn.”
“After what feels like an eternity, I’m releasing a new song into the wild today,” Price added about her new track in a statement via press release. “It’s been hard to keep everything I’ve been working on for the last year to myself and I’m so excited to share it.”
