Songfacts®:

  • "Stone Me" is a righteously defiant song where Margo Price details the difficulties she has faced throughout her life. She takes the listener from her childhood poverty to almost going "broke just from paying dues."
  • Throughout the track, Price stares down the haters who criticize her socio-political lyrics.

    You don't know me
    You don't own me
    Yeah that's no way
    To stone me


    Price stands her ground and ignores her detractors.
  • The confessional tune was written by Price and husband Jeremy Ivey. The singer also co-produced the song along with Sturgill Simpson and David Ferguson.
  • Price's backing band on this track includes Marvin Gaye drummer James Gadson, go-to session bassist Pino Palladino and Tom Petty bandmate Benmont Tench on piano.
  • Price debuted "Stone Me" on January 15, 2020 during an episode of TBS's Full Frontal With Samantha Bee. She also took part in a discussion on the show, alongside Tanya Tucker and Brandi Carlile concerning gender inequality on mainstream country radio.
