The Opry Issues An Apology Following Elle King’s Performance In Honor Of Dolly Parton’s Birthday


The Grand Ole Opry has issued an apology after Elle King’s disastrous performance at the venue’s tribute to Dolly Parton in honor of her 78th birthday.

Video shows that when the singer took to the stage at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium Friday (January 19th), she cursed and slurred her way through her performance before telling the crowd, “You ain’t getting your money back. I’ll tell you one thing more: Hi, my name is Elle King [and] I’m f-king hammered.”

The Opry issued an apology on social media, writing, “We deeply regret and apologize for the language that was used during last night’s second Opry performance.”
