One of Wide Open Country's most anticipated country albums of 2022, King has been previewing Shot Glass since the release of the Leanna EP in 2020, named after his late sister. In addition to EP tracks Hey Cowgirl and "I'll Fly Away," King also delivered early album POVs with You In A Honky Tonk, Baby Do and Record High. Rolling Stone raved about the latter: "King sings it with delicious gusto.... And shows why he's a talented newcomer to keep an eye on."
King, who is listed as a Country Artists to Watch on Pandora and Country Now 2022, has amassed more than 120 million streams in his career to date. King, who has been described by Whiskey Riff as "one of the best live shows you'll ever see," is currently on a string of tour dates with Tracy Lawrence and Clay Walker in March and will continue to headline for the rest of the year.
