Elle King is having a very good year. Sure, you could count the fact that her bluesy debut album, 2015's "Love Stuff*" went gold in 2016 and its top 10 single "Ex's & Oh's," earned her two Grammy nominations. More recently, King appeared with Dierks Bentley on the 50th anniversary broadcast of the Country Music Association awards where the pair won a "Musical Event of the Year" prize for their “Different for Girls" duet, as well as Stephen Colbert's Election Night Showtime special.
Yet, it is the fact that King met the man she calls "the love of her life" earlier in 2016 that has inspired her the most; so much so that she started a live showcase, The Ministry Tour, where marrying couples is a centerpiece of each evening with King acting as an officiator. (The couples originally got connected to King in order to have her marry them through her Instagram account.)
