American singer-songwriter Elle King (born on 3 July 1989 in Los Angeles, California) first came to prominence as a teenage actress when she appeared in the cult movie Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo. The film was written by her father Rob Schneider who also starred in the leading role. During her early teen years, she learned to play guitar and cites artists such as AC/DC, Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin and Earl Scruggs as key musical influences. A pivotal experience during her artistic development came when she attended the famous Buck's Rock Performing and Creative Arts Camp, a summer school in Connecticut for performing arts which helped many young people develop their acting and musical skills. Her debut album was the critically acclaimed Love Stuff which was released in 2015 and made history by being the first ever number one album to be listed on the newly established UK Americana Chart. The lead single from the album was "Ex's & Oh's," which peaked at number ten on Billboard's Hot 100 and launched Elle King's career as an emerging talent on the Americana scene. Her diary-like second album Shake the Spirit emerged in 2018 while in 2023 she edged closer towards country for her third LP Come Get Your Wife, which featured a duet with country icon Miranda Lambert on lead single "Drunk (And I Don't Wanna Go Home)." The track shot to the top of the Country Airplay chart in April 2022, becoming the first female duet to do in nearly thirty years, while it was also nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance, the Country Music Association Award for Musical Event of the Year, and won the Academy of Country Music Award for Video of the Year.
