Marcus King recently stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to deliver a soulful performance of “Wildflowers & Wine.” The South Carolina native was also backed up by the very talented Maggie Rose.
Written by King himself, along with Ronnie Bowman, King tells Relix that the track was inspired by a trip to Virginia:
“’Wildflowers & Wine’ is another one we wrote with Ronnie. He’s got this way about him where he can really read the situation. He pulls ideas out of me and comes up with ideas where I’m like, ‘I can’t believe I didn’t think about that.’ We were talking about this particular trip that I took to visit my girlfriend in Virginia. I picked some wildflowers on the way up there and I got a bottle of wine. It was the first time I drove that far to see someone that I cared so much about. It was just a special trip.”
If you get the chance to dive into his 2020 record El Dorado this week, do it. The kid is the real deal.
