Margo Price has announced the October 20 release of her new album All American Made on Third Man Records. Delivering on the promise of her 2016 debut Midwest Farmer’s Daughter, – an album that took her from country underdog to breakout star – Price raises the stakes considerably on All American Made, offering twelve new, original songs that explore long nights and hard days, wild women and cocaine cowboys, politics and sexism, with plainspoken poetry and cutting insight.

Sessions commenced shortly after the 2016 election with Price and her hard-touring band – Kevin Black (bass), Jamie Davis (electric guitar), Micah Hulscher (piano), Jeremy Ivey (acoustic guitar/bass/harmonica), Dillon Napier (drums), and Luke Schneider (pedal steel) – returning to Memphis to work at Sam Phillips Recording, just down the street from the original Sun Studios where she cut her debut. Once again, Grammy-winner Matt Ross-Spang and Alex Munoz helmed the sessions, co-producing with Price and Ivey. It proved an incredibly fruitful period, yielding over thirty new songs. From those, Price selected all the tracks that appear on All American Made plus her recent surprise-release ‘Weakness’ EP, which earned praise from the New York Times, NPR and Pitchfork, who hailed the title track’s "fiery country-soul" and "gritty momentum."

Real-deal country music may be the most prominent touchstone on All American Made, with the genre’s éminence grise Willie Nelson dueting with Price on the heart-stopping "Learning to Lose," but touches of classic soul and R&B inform many of the arrangements here, fusing two of Tennessee’s greatest musical exports. The funky "Do Right By Me" grooves with gospel legends The McCrary Sisters on backing vocals, and the driving "A Little Pain" features sweeping orchestration by Memphis legend Lester Snell (the man responsible for the string arrangements in "Shaft").

With the largely autobiographical Midwest Farmer’s Daughter, Margo Price was hailed as "country’s next star" by The Fader and "a singular voice" by The New York Times Magazine. The album debuted in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Country Albums Chart, and NPR predicted "Margo Price will stop Music Row dead in its tracks." Her impact was felt far beyond Nashville, with performances and interviews everywhere from SNL, Fallon and Colbert, to Charlie Rose, Austin City Limits and CBS This Morning. The album earned Price the Emerging Artist of the Year honor at the 2016 Americana Music Awards (she’s nominated for Artist of the Year this year), collaborations with some of her musical heroes including Emmylou Harris, Kris Kristofferson, Loretta Lynn and Jack White, and her own display at the Country Music Hall of Fame.
