Margo Price made chart history, played SNL (watch)
Americana-country singer-songwriter Margo Price’s debut LP, Midwest Farmer’s Daughter (Third Man), makes a historic debut on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, arriving at No. 10 with 4,000 sold in its opening week, according to Nielsen Music.
The launch marks the first time in the history of the chart, which dates to Jan. 8, 1964, that a solo female has debuted in the top 10 with her first charted title without the benefit of any history on the Hot Country Songs ranking. [Billboard]
On Saturday night Margo was the musical guest on Saturday Night Live. Unlike at her intimate BV-SXSW show (where she repeatedly told the crowd which included Bill Murray how much fun she was having), she maybe seemed a bit nervous on the big TV stage, but great regardless. Watch:
