Margo Price Releases Music Video for Newly Arranged "Letting Me Down" (Downer Version)
Currently in its third consecutive week as the #1 single on Americana Radio, Margo Price's "Letting Me Down" is one of many, muscular and monumental highlights from her latest album, That's How Rumors Get Started (Loma Vista Recordings). Today, however, with the release of a brand new arrangement she's dubbed the Downer Version, Margo transforms the track from a restless, riff-rocking travelogue of a runaway teenager into a mesmerizing meditation on loneliness. Simmering in a swirl of baritone and acoustic guitars, dobro, lap steel and harmonica, the song emphasizes the new meanings and emotions it has taken on since Margo and her husband Jeremy Ivey first wrote it to a pair of high school friends.

Tonight, Margo Price kicks off a two-night stint at Brooklyn Bowl Nashville, bringing her full band back together to live-stream a special pair of audience-free shows. This evening she'll be joined by Adia Victoria and tomorrow's broadcast will feature an appearance by Lucinda Williams. Each set will include guest vocals from Nicki Bluhm and will be presented through an immersive, interactive video experience via FANS.

Following its #1 debut on Nielsen's Americana/Folk Charts and Billboard's Tastemakers Charts, That's How Rumors Get Started just claimed the #1 spot on last week's Americana Radio Album Charts.
