Shelly King will be at the Dixie Center for the Arts this weekend

Shelley King is royalty in Texas and the first woman to be appointed Official State Musician of Texas by the legislature. The blues, roots-rock, gospel singer stands out in the crowd as an award-winning songwriter, steeped in Americana music. Born in Arkansas, and raised back and forth between Arkansas and Texas, Shelley has surrounded herself with A-list mentors from Marcia Ball to John Magnie and Delbert McClinton.
