Elle King Firmly Sets Her Stakes In Nashville With The Release Of Her New Album 'Come Get Your Wife'
By Stevie Connor.
Fusing her rural Ohio roots with life lived on both coasts, Elle King firmly sets her stakes in Nashville with the release of her new album “Come Get Your Wife”.
Relaxed, unrestrained, brazen, and vulnerable, the album is all things King! With the release of the new music, Nashville Lifestyles proclaims, “Elle King Reigns Supreme and begs the question, “Is Elle King Country’s New Queen,” in their January cover feature on her.
She co-wrote eight of the songs on the record that opens with a nod to her native Ohio. “It’s where I grew up, it’s where I learned about music,” said King. “It’s about rural living and my foundation and it’s where my Paw-Paw and my brother live. Ohio made me who I am”
Truth and humour permeate the album and are on full display in the already released and current single “Worth A Shot,” feat Dierks Bentley, “Out Yonder,” “Tulsa,” “Try Jesus,” “Jersey Giant” and the smash #1, award winning song “Drunk (And I Don’t Want To Come Home),” with Miranda Lambert.
New songs releasing from the record include the raw and powerful “Love Go By” (performance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Jan 26) and the gratitude infused “Lucky,” that she wrote with a heart full of gratitude and reflection about her life, career and most importantly, her son Lucky her (performance on Good Morning America on Jan 27). “Lucky,” is also featured in a brand new music video.
There’s no better place to celebrate new music than with the fans and that party kicks-off February 14 in New Orleans with her headline “A-FREAKIN-MEN” Tour Presented by Slow & Low. “I have put all of my energy and love into this album, and I cannot wait to share it live for everyone.” Ten markets are sold out already and tickets for other dates are selling fast!
King’s live show is a “… showcase for her range from soulful crooning to guttural singing and head-banging to the rock and roll sound of the drumming and electric guitar solo,” said the San Francisco Riff. American Songwriter Magazine highlighted her performance as one of the “8 Moments We loved at This Year’s Pilgrimage Festival. They noted, “She showcased her rock roots and her country twang on Sunday afternoon with a set that washed an air of levity over the crowd.”
King and her band bring a full set of new music and hits to the stage which include her smashes “Ex’s & Oh’s,” “Drunk (And I Don’t Want To Go Home),” “Different For Girls,” “America’s Sweetheart,” and more. King is offering tickets as well as VIP meet & greet packages at every show which are available to purchase at ElleKing.com.
The Elle King A-FREAKIN-MEN Tour Presented by Slow & Low, will also feature the musical force that is Red Clay Strays.
