Carole King is arguably the most successful and revered female songwriter in pop music history. To date, more than 400 Carole King compositions have been recorded by more than 1000 artists, resulting in 100 hit singles — many reaching #1. She was the first woman to win four Grammy Awards in one year, and her landmark 1971 album "Tapestry" received a Diamond Award from the RIAA for sales of more than 10 million units in the U.S., with more than 25 million units sold worldwide.

King's first ever holiday album, "A Holiday Carole," was released by Hear Music/Concord Music Group on November 1, 2011. In a career with innumerable highlights, King has reached new pinnacles in recent years including 2010's best-selling "Troubadour Reunion" album and tour with James Taylor, "American Idol" devoting an entire episode to her music in 2011, and a forthcoming memoir due out in 2012.
