Elle King is releasing her third country radio single, and it’s her second collaboration with Dierks Bentley. The song is called “Worth The Wait.” Elle and Dierks Bentley first made waves with their Grammy-nominated, CMA Award-winning, number one hit “Different for Girls.”

King said in a press release, “Dierks took a chance and brought me into the country world. I couldn’t make my own country record, which is my favorite album I’ve ever made, without including the person who gave me a seat at the table.”

She added, “To be honest, Dierks and I just have fun no matter what we do, especially singing and performing great songs. This song is all about trying to get back to the beginning of something, and so it’s only right that we go back to where it all started for me.”

“Worth A Shot” is the follow-up of King’s single “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” with Miranda Lambert. The Grammy-nominated certified Platinum hit reached #1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay and Mediabase/Country Aircheck charts.

King and Lambert will perform “Drunk” this Sunday (5/15) at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards, where the song was named a finalist for Top Rock Song.
