Emerging country singer and guitarist Margo Price was the featured musical guest on Monday morning’s episode of Good Morning America, where she fittingly provided television viewers with a lively rendition of “All American Made“. The song is the title track of her 2017 studio album, which helped earned the Nashville singer/songwriter a 2019 Grammy nomination in the “Best New Artist” category.The notable point to take away from Price’s televised performance on Monday was the fact that she enlisted a full band to help her perform what is typically a more relaxed solo acoustic track. The song opens up hot and fast, maybe even too hot, but Price stays on her feet as her trademark soothing vocals come in to join the band 0:25 seconds into the performance video seen below.Margo Price – “All American Made” (Live) – Good Morning America[Video: Rolling Stone]Price does her best attempt to channel the classic Christine McVie look for her television appearance with a full black outfit and hat to contrast those long blonde locks of hers. She could almost pass for one of the stylish hipsters from nearby Brooklyn rather than a rising star out of Nashville’s alt-country scene. It almost appears that spending even just a little time in New York City has already started to rub off on her. It’s also worth noting that Price was in NYC last weekend, where she welcomed fans to start their 2019 with herself and Lily Hyatt with a New Year’s Eve show at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg.Related: Margo Price’s Big 2018 Acknowledged In Latest U.S. Congressional RecordPrice has a few select gigs lines up for later this month, starting with appearances at an all-star Willie Nelson Tribute Concert at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on January 12th, and the Outlaw Country Cruise in Atlanta on January 27th. Price recently announced that she’s expecting to give birth to her first child at some point in 2019, so fans should expect for her to take at least some time off from performing as she focuses on starting a family in the coming months.
The Saint Mary’s Career Crossings Office and Center for Women’s Intercultural Leadership co-sponsored an alumnae panel discussion on the impact of studying abroad through Zoom, Thursday night. Two alumnae, Jungquie Guan (’11) and Nellie Petlick (’16), shared stories about their times at Saint Mary’s, their study abroad experiences and the impact studying abroad had on their career paths and lives as a whole. Guan is originally from Chengdu, China, and studied abroad at Saint Mary’s while majoring in economics and French. While at Saint Mary’s, she studied abroad in France for a semester her sophomore year. Her unique “double” study abroad experience opened her eyes to an entirely new world, Guan said. She realized her love for dancing, especially ballet, while taking a dance class offered by Saint Mary’s. “Dance became a vehicle for me to make French friends while abroad,” she said.Guan also met one of her best friends while abroad in France. In the trips to Europe following her study abroad experience, Guan visited her life-long friend, and still communicates with her often.After graduating from Saint Mary’s, Guan earned her masters in International Education Policy from Harvard University and an MFA in Dance Performance at the University of Iowa. She is currently working on her doctorate in Culture and Performance at University of California Los Angeles. Petlick studied in Rome in the spring of 2014, and shared some of her experiences in the Zoom panel. She was a history and theater double major at Saint Mary’s, so traveling to Rome encompassed all of her interests, she said. From the time of her commitment to attend Saint Mary’s, Petlick knew she wanted to study abroad, and she was set on going to Rome. She said she did not necessarily think of going to Rome as a tool to help her future career, but she wanted to focus on her history major and knew Rome was the place to be. Petlick said her time in Rome challenged her American ethnocentrism and pushed her outside of her daily way of thinking and living.“It was just humbling to be in another country where I was the outsider,” Petlick said. “[I] realized America was not the center of the world … I began to view things as not right or wrong but just different.” Her time in Rome exposed her to things she would have never experienced otherwise, she added, and influenced her to be open to situations where the impact might be different from what she was expecting.After graduating from Saint Mary’s, Petlick strayed from her intended career path, entered the Peace Corps and moved to Ukraine from 2016 to 2018. During that time, she worked in Ukraine at the State Department for EducationUSA, where she talked with international students about her time at Saint Mary’s. She now attends Yale University, where she is pursuing her master’s of Public Policy. After graduating in 2022, Petlick hopes to join the U.S. Foreign Service as a diplomat. Both Guan and Petlick encouraged students to study abroad while in college, an experience that offers the unique opportunity to live and immerse yourself in a culture for an extended period of time. Both women said their study abroad experiences and their years at Saint Mary’s empowered them in unimaginable ways, and opened up doors they did not know even existed.Tags: Career Crossings Office, culture, Peace Corps, SMC alumnae, study abroad
