Margo Price first played at the TaxSlayer Center when it was named "The Mark of the Quad Cities."

Her sister says that when Price was a teenager, she sang the national anthem for a QC Mallards game.

Of course, Thursday night was the first time she played an actual concert in the building.

She posted to her Facebook page Thursday Afternoon saying in part, "Lookin' forward to seeing my family and friends tonight!," with a heart emoji.

Price is an Aledo native who now lives in Nashville. Her popularity has skyrocketed in the last year-and-a-half, especially after her debut album released in April of 2016.

Dozens of family members and friends attended the show Thursday night.

"It's so exciting to see Margo perform in such an amazing setting," said her sister Britni Gibson. "We've watched her move to Nashville quite a while ago and she really worked hard for this. We're so proud of her."
