Shawn King’s Wiki
TBT I was 14 yrs old here. Touring with a musical, we played in Vegas for 3 weeks. This was taken at the MGM Grand in a photo shop with all kinds of costumes from the days of saloons. I liked being a cowgirl. It's in my DNA. At least that's what my parents (and ancestry.com) tell me. #family #pioneerancestry #showbiz #touringwithmybesties
