King has been nominated for a Lone Star Music Award for Best Vocal Performance-Female for her seventh CD “Welcome Home,” which features the hit single “Summer Wine.” “She's the player who can hit all the balls, from bluesy balladry (‘It's Starting to Rain’) and gospel (‘Welcome Home’) to zydeco (‘Everything's All Right’) and country swamp pop (‘Asking Too Much’) with righteous force,” said Margaret Moser, reviewing “Welcome Home” for the Austin Chronicle.
