King has released new track Wildflowers & Wine, the second to be lifted from El Dorado and the follow-up to The Well.
Discussing the song’s lyrics, King shares, “Driving from South Carolina to see a girl in Virginia. Stopping only to grab a bottle of red wine, and to pick some wildflowers by the interstate.
