, as well as an exclusive performance of "It Ain't Drunk Driving If You're Riding A Horse" featuring her new Masterbilt Century De Luxe.
"Americana is such a funny word," Price told Epiphone while recording at Sam Phillips Studios in Memphis. "I remember the first time I started hearing it and when I looked it up it means "of America" which is cool. I feel like so many people slap it on anything that doesn't have a genre. That being said, it is nice to have a place where my music is accepted. Where as I often hear about my music: "well that's too country" for country. I had a radio programmer say that to me. But what I think of as "country" is not country now. These days I think people are trying to be more rooted. I think there has been a wave of less pop and more substance. That word "Americana" is a tricky word. But I don't mind because the other alternative is less descriptive of what I do. Definitely that last record I would just call it a country record but other people don't know what to think about it (laughs)."
