Kelsey Waldon at The Southgate House Revival

Kelsey Waldon and Margo Price have been good friends for a long time. So when it came time for Waldon to ask a few pals to help out on her upcoming album There’s Always A Song, out May 10th via Oh Boy Records/Thirty Tigers, it was only natural that Waldon would give Price a call. Together, the dynamic duo, backed by Waldon’s ace band, put their stamp on the classic “Traveling the Highway Home.”

“It is so special to have my friend, the force that is Margo Price, singing this song with me,” Waldon says. “We have both come such a long way since the earliest days of our friendship, and it's been a wild ride and there's still so many more memories to go. Who knows more about ‘Travelin' the Highway Home’ than us? She is my fellow road dog and partner in crime. I'm very grateful she lended some vocals to this song. Life is too short to not make music, travel, and get through it all with your friends.”

There’s Always A Song finds Waldon paying tribute to some of the singular artists who shaped her. Waldon shines throughout, and friends Price, S.G. Goodman, Amanda Shires, and Isaac Gibson from 49 Winchester all lend a hand. The eight songs on There’s Always A Song, from the earliest pages of the country and bluegrass music songbooks, helped the singer-songwriter from Monkey’s Eyebrow, KY, find her place in the world before she became an artist whose own work generates buzz, lands on year-end best-of lists, and, in 2019, led Waldon to become the first artist in 15 years to sign a deal with John Prine’s Oh Boy Records.

Waldon kicks off her Spring/Summer headline tour this Wednesday, May 1st in her home state of Kentucky at The Southgate House Revival!
