Margo Price has made her long-awaited return with a new song, “Stone Me.”
On the song, which was co-written by Price and her husband Jeremy Ivey, the singer calls out sexism and inequality in the country music industry. “You can pick a side but both are wrong / You can fight the good fight but you’re on your own / I used to feel loved but now I feel used / I almost went broke just from paying dues,” she sings.
Price also recently discussed the topic on a segment of Full Frontal With Samantha Bee, alongside fellow female country musicians Tanya Tucker and Brandi Carlile. “I get blacklisted by a lot of [country labels] because my music talked about real life problems and they just didn’t like what I had to say,” she said.
“After what feels like an eternity, I’m releasing a new song into the wild today,” Price said in a 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.”
“Stone Me” is Price’s first new release since her 2018 single for Amazon Music, “Leftovers.” In 2017, she released her critically acclaimed sophomore record, All American Made.
