Over the past couple of years, rising star Margo Price has become friends with the entire Nelson family, so it’s no surprise she’s making her third straight appearance at Willie Nelson’s Fourth of July Picnic on Wednesday at Circuit of the Americas.

“It’s nice to have people at the shows, and it’s nice to not have to waitress anymore,” Price said about her seemingly rapid rise to stardom that was actually more than a decade in the making. “But I think being able to meet some of my mentors has been a highlight for sure.”
