Elle King is bringing the Country: Elle King might be the daughter of comedian Rob Schneider, but that’s probably the least interesting thing about her. There’s no “Hollywood princess on a pop road to stardom” narrative here, or at least there shouldn’t be. Her rootsy Americana with a raunchy swing is charming, and absolutely authentic.
A couple of years ago, she opened up the Heart/Joan Jett & the Blackhearts show and did herself proud; she didn’t look the slightest bit out of place and anthemic single “Ex’s and Oh’s” was one of the highlights during an evening full of them.
It’s been a little while since her last album, 2018’s Shake the Spirit, but she livestreams this week as part of the County Now Live series, and that’s cause for celebration.
Elle King is bringing the Country: Tune in at 6 p.m. PT on Wednesday, April 14 via Twitch.
