The Caverns Above Ground Amphitheater, situated about an hour and a half southeast of Nashville, opened above the famous underground Caverns in October, and already has more than a dozen spring shows on its calendar, including Del McCoury Band (April 18) and St. Paul and The Broken Bones (April 23-24).

Price released her third studio album, That’s How Rumors Get Started, in July 2020. Weeks earlier, she released the live album Perfectly Imperfect at the Ryman, recorded over three sold-out nights at the famed Nashville venue in May 2018. According to Pollstar Boxoffice reports, the gigs moved 6,815 tickets and grossed $247,280.

Despite the lack of physical touring, Price made several livestream appearances in 2020, including two ticketed, audience-less shows broadcast from Brooklyn Bowl Nashville in September.

In August 2019, Price opened several successful shows for Chris Stapleton; prior to the pandemic, she was booked to open for The Head and The Heart on it spring tour.
