Musician Margo Price has spent over a decade fighting her way to the top of the Country and Americana music worlds. She’s performed for hundreds of thousands of fans, she’s the first (and only) woman to be elected to the board of Farm Aid alongside artists like Willie Nelson and Neil Young, and now she’s ready to tell her story in her new memoir Maybe We’ll Make It.

Join us on October 20th, when Price joins the National Writers Series to discuss her book from the stage of the historic State Theater in downtown Traverse City. Get your tickets now and be part of this special intimate evening where she’ll talk about her story of loss, motherhood, and the search for artistic freedom in the midst of the agony experienced by so many aspiring musicians.

From bad gigs and long tours to rejection and sexual harassment to too much drinking and not enough money to live on, this book tells the real story of what it takes to make it in Nashville. If you’ve ever found inspiration in the stories of artists like Dolly Parton and Loretta Lynn, you’ll want to be here when Margo takes the stage to share hers.
