Her Kind of Medicine is Whiskey, Straight
Elle King is one of the baddest women in the music industry. With her signature growl and her incredible range, she is a hurricane of a superstar. She is an incredible songwriter and is known to play both the guitar and the banjo at an early age.
Elle King is no stranger to the limelight. She was born to superstar parents comedian/actor Rob Schnieder and model/actress London King. But, King had been determined to build her career from the ground up and not to rely on familial influence.
And, she has succeeded in doing just that. She has received multiple recognitions in the past years. Her debut album “Love Stuff” was released back in 2015, and its lead single “Ex’s & Oh’s” hit number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song also earned her a Grammy nomination, followed by a Teen Choice Award. King has won the CMA awards as Vocal Event of the Year in 2016. King also garnered recognition for her work with Dierks Bentley on their duet “Different for Girls.”
The backing track of the song is mostly King playing the banjo and the anthemic beat of the drums. During the chorus, it picks up with several other instruments like the flute and the trumpet, and people are jamming with it. This formula, coupled with King’s iconic rasp injects a very feel-good vibe to the song.
The lyrics itself scream empowerment. From the first verses, King happily sang that she was proud with how she looked, with lyrics like:
“I think I’m pretty with these old boots on” –
“I like the chip I got in my front teeth.”
She also affirmed that she was content with who she was with the lyric:
“‘Cause I don’t want to be nobody else.”
The song itself scraps the ideal image of being “America’s Sweetheart” and instead portray a more accurate representation of what a country girl is or can be.
