Watch Margo Price’s Epic ‘Cocaine Cowboys’ Drum Jam on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’
Country fans likely already know what a bada-- Margo Price is, but the singer recently brought her hard-rocking talent to a national audience during her slot on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Press play above to watch Price's masterful seven-minute performance of "Cocaine Cowboys," off of her 2017 album, All American Made.
"Cocaine cowboys, they're bad in the saddle / But they're coming from New York, LA and Seattle," Price sings in the chorus of the song, a tongue-in-cheek kiss-off to the sham cowboys who pour in from coastal cities and don western wear to roam the streets of East Nashville. "They're all hat / They don't rope no cattle / They don't ride no bulls."
While the song is powerful in itself, Price took her performance to a whole new level with a bluesy, jam-infused drum solo at the end of the song, following another solo from her husband and bandmate, Jeremy Ivey.
Following her performance, Price shared a snippet of the song on Instagram, commenting, "Don't let anybody tell you you can't play drums while six months pregnant and in high heels on national television."
During the same show, Price showcased a simpler and more intimate aspect of her repertoire with "Loner," also from All American Made, this time addressing the audience with acoustic guitar and Ivey on harmonica.
Coming up, Price is in the nominations mix at the 2019 Grammy Awards in the category of Best New Artist. Additionally, she has suggested on several occasions that she is working on a new album, telling The Boot that a little bit of a "genre switch" may be in the works.
