Margo Price Releases Live Album, ‘Imperfectly Perfect At The Ryman’

Margo Price released a new live album today, highlighting some of the moments from her sold-out, headlining residency two years ago at the Ryman Auditorium.

Perfectly Imperfect at The Ryman revisits the three-night Ryman run and is out exclusively on Bandcamp, with all proceeds benefiting the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund.

Price was slated to release a new full-length studio album, dubbed That’s How Rumors Get Started, on May 8, but that project was postponed and is now set to release later this summer via Loma Vista Recordings. Price shared her reasons for delaying the album in an essay penned for Vogue.

Perfectly Imperfect at the Ryman features plenty of starpower, with Emmylou Harris joining Price on “Wild Women,” Sturgill Simpson offering a rendition of Rodney Crowell‘s “Ain’t Livin’ Long Like This,” and Jack White joining on a duet of The White Stripes’ “Honey, We Can’t Afford to Look This Cheap.”

“I am so excited that we are releasing it today,” she says of the new live album. “The recordings are rough and the performances are raw, but there was a magic there and the band was on fire. We played unreleased songs, alternative album versions and had lots of special guests. I hope it moves you.”
