(Gibson) Margo Price has been announced the 2017 winner of the American Music Prize, an honor that recognizes last year's best debut album. The Gibson-loving singer songwriter was surprised by the news when given to her by her label Third Man in Nashville; she was told that she needed to be at the label for a business meeting.

"I'm really speechless right now. I wasn't expecting this at all, and that's maybe what makes it so sweet," Price said. "I kept asking, 'Am I in trouble? Do you think I did something wrong?' [My husband's] like, 'No, it's fine. We're going to go get a nice dinner.' He even told me to change my dress, that it wasn't nice enough!"

Price's Midwest Farmer's Daughter, released in March of 2016, beat out about 250 other debut albums to win the 2017 American Music Prize, which "aims to encourage, discover, reward and promote new music of excellence by USA artists," according to the Prize's official website. Twelve finalists, from all different genres, were shortlisted. Read more here.
