Elle King is picking herself and dusting herself off after infamously botching Dolly Parton’s birthday tribute show.

Celebrating her musical comeback, the 34-year-old country artist took to her Instagram to post snaps from her performance at the Extra Innings Festival in Tempe, Arizona, which took place on Friday.

“Ope there she is,” she captioned the carousel post documenting the weekend.

In snaps, the Ex’s and Oh’s songstress looked radiant in a red long-sleeved shirt paired with a red and black snakeskin miniskirt and red cowboy boots.

She also wore sunglasses to protect her from the Arizona glare.

In one of the photos, King posed with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards, who re-posted the snap to her own Stories, telling King, “You killed it at @extrainningsfest!!!”

On Saturday, King also performed as a special guest on Chris Stapleton’s All American Road Show tour stop in San Diego, and is set to perform three more shows across the U.K. before announcing more North American concerts later this spring.

In January, King came under fire for “ruining” Dolly Parton’s 78th birthday tribute as she appeared on stage drunk, slurring her words, cussing out the audience, and not even remembering the lyrics to Parton’s songs.

However, Parton did not hold it against her, instead calling King a “great artist” in an interview with Extra.

About the incident, Parton said, “[King] just had too much to drink, so let’s just forgive that and forget it and move on ‘cause she felt worse than anybody ever could.”
