Officials for the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship presented by P&G announce that Elle King will headline the tournament’s Walmart Community Concert, held on Saturday, June 24 at the Walmart AMP. The Walmart Community Concert joins a line-up of other tournament week events including BITE NW Arkansas food festival, the 5k @ the LPGA benefiting Mercy, and the full-field LPGA golf tournament. #NWAChampionship Week returns June 19 – 25, 2017.
Elle King took the world by storm with the release of her Gold-certified debut album Love Stuff in 2015, a display of King's grounding in rock, blues, country, and pop styles. Her hit single “Ex’s & Oh’s” was nominated for 2 Grammys and 2 Billboard Music Awards, was certified double platinum, and she made chart history, becoming the second female artist in 18 years to reach #1 at Alternative Radio. In 2016, she teamed up with country singer Dierks Bentley for the song "Different for Girls". They performed together at the 2016 CMA Awards where she and Bentley won the award for Musical Event of the Year.
