With duet partner Dierks Bentley by her side, Elle King recently crossed “playing the Grand Ole Opry” off of her bucket list. The two performed their chart-topping single “Different for Girls,” along with a rendition of the Johnny and June classic, “Jackson.”

Despite experiencing a few technical sound issues while on stage, the pair sounded as impressive as ever. Dierks played guitar while the “Ex’s and Oh’s” singer picked her banjo. Not only did they sound great while belting out “Jackson,” they looked like they were having a blast doing so.

Playing the Opry had always been a huge dream of King’s. “It means the world to me… I don’t know if people know how much I grew up loving country music,” she told Billboard prior to the show.

The video below includes their performance on the iconic Nashville stage and also some behind the scenes footage.

Country music fans have welcomed the alternative rock singer with open arms. With powerhouse vocals like hers, it’s easy to see why.

In fact, “Different for Girls” recently earned a CMA Award nomination for Musical Event of the Year. If you haven’t seen the music video for the emotional song yet, you can check it out here.
