BY MELISSA RUGGIERI/AJC Music Scene

Elle King has canceled her Tuesday performance at the Tabernacle because of an election night scheduling issue.

The “Ex’s and Oh’s” singer, who picked up a CMA Award last week for her collaboration with Dierks Bentley, said in a website post that she was invited to be a guest on Stephen Colbert’s election special on Showtime and couldn’t pass up the opportunity.

Here is the full statement from her Facebook page:

Hi Lovers!

I have a once in a lifetime opportunity to be a special guest for election night madness with Stephen Colbert. I encourage everyone to vote and then tune in to see what we have planned. Unfortunately, this means I can’t make it to Atlanta for my concert on November 8. I'm so sorry for any inconvenience, but I promise to come back and see you all really soon!

For more information, call the Tabernacle at (404) 659-9022, visit www.elleking.com, or www.tabernacleatl.com.

Here is some more info about the Colbert special as well as other election night viewing options.
