Grand Ole Opry Apologizes After Elle King Cusses and Flubs Her Way Through Dolly Parton Tribute

Outrage over an embarrassing appearance of Elle King during Parton tribute

After outrage over an embarrassing appearance by a drunken Ellen King during a Dolly Parton tribute, Grand Ole Opry apologized to his fans. The event took place on Friday night. The singer cussed during the traditionally family-friendly show and awkwardly bantered with hecklers. She failed to remember the Parton song that she was supposed to sing as part of the birthday salute. She described herself as “fucking hammered”.

Angry reactions were widespread among country fans. She addressed the crowd in an extremely rude manner.

King changes the lyrics of the songs

King forgot the lines to the Parton song “Marry Me,” and appeared in video clips to be changed the lyrics to “I don’t give a shit” and “I don’t know the lyrics to these things in this fucking town… Don’t tell Dolly ‘cause it’s her birthday.

Fans angry at her behavior

The dispute over King’s appearance quickly spread among all the country fans. Many saw it as a sign that Elle was misguidedly cultivating an outlaw image as she moved from past pop-rock successes into country. Others worried for her health as King has been open in interviews about a history of performing while inebriated.

King owes both Parton and the Opry an apology. King has officially migrated to country music with her last album, 2023’s ‘Come Get Your Wife.

King has recently appeared in a series of high-profile TV gigs within the country arena. She had become a favorite of broadcast bookers, before the reactions to Friday night’s Opry performance.

The singer made her name in the country with the single “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home).

King likes to drink before the stage to calm her nerves

King said in a recent interview with the San Diego Union-Tribune that she likes to drink and sing. However, she said that she does not want to get as drunk as she used to. She gets nervous before she goes on stage, so a couple of drinks help her

King’s performance has constructed compassionate as well as angry reactions.

A commenter described a recent appearance of King at the Rebels and Renegades Festival in California. They said that they have no problem with folks boozing it up. Even weed is okay. However, the first 10 minutes of the show was King strutting around making a big show of having each band member take off her joint. So, filling that role at the Opry isn’t surprising to them.

Parton herself did not give an appearance at the Opry tribute shows. It celebrated her 79th birthday. Other participants of the show that caused less of a stir than King included Ashley Monroe, Tigirlily Gold, Dailey & Vincent, and Terri Clark. Lauren Alaina was also booked but canceled a little time before showtime, due to the snowy Nashville conditions. She told her fans on social media that she lives out on country roads. She was even unable to unable to get off her street.

King has a show planned for California’s Stagecoach Festival on April 26. She has a busy schedule in this spring and summer.
