Margo Price has released a couple of new singles over the past few weeks, but today she’s returned to her 2017 album All American Made, with a visual for the title track.
Directed by Kimberly Stuckwisch and Carlos Lopez Estrada of Little Ugly productions, the MV was filmed across eight cities including Nashville, New Orleans and Detroit, and features real people (no actors were involved, as the credits note). It’s a poignant clip that highlights the struggles of middle-class Americans, from farmers to barbers to craftsmen, and questions whether the American Dream is just an illusion.
“We actually wrote that song during the Obama administration,” Price wrote in a statement on her website. “But it really altered meaning for me on the day Trump was elected. That song embodies the good and the bad in the ugly in this country. America is so beautiful to me, but it’s in a really hard spot right now.”
