Happy Margo Price day!

This morning Jill spun a new cover song from Margo Price on a bonus 7 inch included with her new album (Bobbie Gentry's 1970 "He Made a Woman out of Me"), Jill brought you this week's Album of the Week review for Margo's new record That's How Rumors Get Started, and just after 9 we'll hear a virtual session from Margo herself.

Why not round out this Margo morning with a Coffee Break focused on modern-day country music outlaws? Let us know who you'd like to hear.

And if you're not quite sure what we mean by "Outlaw", it's a sub-genre of country music that has its roots in honky tonk and rockabilly and is a blend of rock and folk rhythms, country instrumentation and introspective lyrics. Most famous early "outlaws" include Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Tanya Tucker, etc. But this morning, we're on the hunt for more modern suggestions.
