Elle King earned the wrath of country music fans after a drunken performance disrespected Dolly Parton. Despite her behavior, the singer has booked a new gig with a legendary singer. Keep reading for all the details.

Elle King & Alcohol Don’t Mix

Many people are surprised to find out that country singer Elle King is the daughter of former SNL comic Rob Schneider. But her famous ties didn’t keep her out of hot water after a recent performance at a Dolly Parton tribute.

The Grand Ole Opry hosted the Opry Goes Dolly celebration in honor of Dolly Parton’s 78th birthday. Lauren Alaina was supposed to perform but had to cancel at the last minute. It’s a safe bet that Elle King wishes she had canceled and never taken the stage in her condition.

The “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” singer took the stage and continuously messed up the Dolly Parton song she was supposed to sing. She admitted to the crowd that she was inebriated. “Hi, my name is Elle King and I’m f—ing hammered,” she said at one point during her performance.

This wasn’t the first performance where viewers thought Elle King was under the influence. She hosted the New Year’s Eve Live: Nashville Big Bash on December 31, 2023. Many viewers took to social media to speculate that she was drunk.
