If you've ever seen an episode of Gilmore Girls, then you already know who Carole King is because that's right, folks: "Where You Lead" was written (and performed) by King herself!
She originally cowrote it with Toni Stern for her 1971 album Tapestry, but rerecorded it with her daughter Louise Goffin for the legendary Amy Sherman-Palladino TV show. In a concert tour in the mid-'00s, King revealed: "After I recorded ['Where You Lead'] for the Tapestry album, we women decided that we didn't actually need to follow our men anymore. Then, it got a new lease on life." King and Stern edited some of the original lyrics to fit the Gilmore Girls theme, and the last verse was changed to: "You never know how it's all gonna turn out, but that's okay. Just as long as we're together, we can find a way."
