Margo Price Heads Home in New ‘Hands of Time’ Music Video
Like many Americans, Margo Price was raised in a small town -- and it's that small hometown of hers that serves as the setting for her new music video, for her song "Hands of Time."
Price and director Ben Chappell went home to Aledo, Ill., to film Price's nostalgic "Hands of Time" video. Viewers will see Aledo's water tower, farms and small-town scenery. Price and her family -- husband Jeremy Ivey (who plays in her band), their son and Price's mother -- appear throughout the clip as well. Readers can press play above to watch.
"Hands of Time" appears on Price's 2016 album, Midwest Farmer's Daughter. The country newcomer pawned her wedding ring and sold her car to help pay for the project, which she and her band recorded overnight in three days at Memphis’ legendary Sun Studio. The group came in from Music City, rented an AirBnB and worked their butts off to quickly craft the 10-track record, which was influenced by Price’s years of trying to “make it” in Nashville, the childhood memories of her family losing their farm and the pain of trying to cope with the death of one of her children.
“It’s kind of nice to be away from home. You can fully immerse yourself in the record,” Price previously told The Boot of recording Midwest Farmer's Daughter. “The vibes of the city and the energy kind of seeped into us, and we could stay focused on the project. We didn’t have to go home or deal with anything else; we were just totally there to make the record and to focus on that.”
