Margo Price has attacked President Trump,
Margo Price is emerging as one of the most outspoken artists in country music, and she doesn’t hold back in a new interview, sharing her thoughts about gun control, President Trump and her support for the “amazing” rising tide of women demanding equal rights.
Price recently released her sophomore album, All American Made, which is filled with sharply-written observations about the struggles of everyday working Americans. Speaking to Rolling Stone Country on a day when Trump was visiting Nashville to give a speech to a coalition of farmers, she observes, “I don’t understand how people think that some rich guy that has been handed everything his whole life knows anything about the struggling working class.”
Price herself is the product of a blue-collar upbringing in rural Illinois, which she chronicles extensively on her acclaimed debut album, 2016’s Midwest Farmer’s Daughter. She has been one of the few country artists to speak up to advocate for gun control after the mass shooting that killed 58 people at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas in October, despite the fact that her father used to help feed her family by hunting.
“There’s something beautiful about that,” Price says. “But we didn’t have high-powered machine guns when this all started.”
