Margo Price, 'Paper Cowboy' (Live At SXSW 2016)

At our SXSW showcase, Margo Price performed this non-album cut written by her bass player Matt Gardner, who was also in her previous band, Buffalo Clover. After a gentle intro, "Paper Cowboy" turns into a honky tonk rocker that speeds along at a fast clip, with barroom piano, scorching electric guitar and dizzying solos from the pedal steel.
