Elle King concusses herself falling down stairs, cancels show

Elle King announced that she is withdrawing from three radio shows after falling down the stairs resulting in a concussion.

The Grammy-nominated musician, 33, shared an update with fans on her Instagram Story on Thursday, revealing that she fell one night while making a bottle for her son Lucky Levi15 months.

“No one ever wants to pull out of shows, especially me. I live to perform. I slipped down the stairs and did a bottle in the middle of the night, knocked my ass out, resulting in a concussion,” King wrote.

“I tried to push through and played 3 shows, but the travel, the lights, it all just made things worse. I want to thank the artists who stepped in and filled my slots, as well as the radio stations for their understanding and continued support.”

King’s upcoming shows were in Tampa, Detroit and Seattle, she shared — but the “Ex’s & Oh’s” singer will instead get some much-needed rest while she recovers ahead of some upcoming dates in mid-January, February and March.

“I wish you all happy and healthy holidays and I can’t wait to come back next year and sing with you soon,” King concluded his note.

There’s plenty of new material for King to sing on tour next year, like her upcoming country album Come and get your wife will be released on January 27. The LP marks her first full-length record in nearly five years, following 2018’s Shake the Spirit. So far, King has released singles in “Try Jesus”, Miranda Lambert collab “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” and Dierks Bentley duet “Worth a Shot.”

“This whole album and everything reveals a lot more about myself, because now I’m a lot more comfortable because I don’t have anything… It’s not because I don’t have anything to prove, because I always want to prove it to you. I want to. I love to,” she told PEOPLE about the new album in October. “But I’m much more revealing about my life and about a part of my life that I’ve been so protective of, which is where my family is from and where my family still lives in Ohio and what really made me who I am and what brought me here.”

While King embraces country music, she is also proud of her young son, whom she shares with her partner Dan Tooker. The singer told PEOPLE in October that motherhood has changed her life completelyand explained how it has made her a “gentler person, a stronger person” and ultimately “happy”.

“Parenting in any sense, no matter what kind of caregiver someone is in that position, it’s going to humble you. You have to learn empathy,” she said, noting how she tries to model the behaviors she wants her son to learn .

“I am telling [Lucky], ‘You have to wake up. You must brush your teeth. You have to eat. You must love yourself. You must be kind to other people. You have to be kind to yourself’. I have to show him that,” she continues. “And so I’ve learned to be patient.”

And she doesn’t do it all alone. King also praised Tooker, calling him “an incredible partner who believes in me.” “I want my son to see that he has two parents with dreams and they work really, really hard to do it,” she said.
