Congrats to Miranda Lambert and Elle King as their song “Drunk (and I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” tops the Billboard airplay chart!
Miranda shared, “Drunk is number-1!!! Elle King is one of my favorite artists and one of my favorite people to be around. I am proud to call her my friend and I’m so glad she asked me to do song this song with her.”
Lambert added, “The fact that a duet by 2 women hasn’t been a number-1 in country music since 1993 is crazy to me. So, the fact that we got here today means even more because it’s bigger than us. Thanks Reba (McEntire) and Linda (Davis) for paving the way. Elle King I love you and your spirit. Thanks to everyone who played /streamed and sang along with us on Drunk. Now let’s get drunk and not wanna go home!“
Elle shared a message too, “I can’t believe it! Drunk is #1! Thank you so much to Country Radio for giving me and my girl Miranda a shot. And to all of the country fans out there, I LOVE YOU! The life of this song has taught me so much, everything has its own time and path. And when in doubt, add Miranda Lambert!!! I am so thankful to you Miranda, you are a shining light, and there’s no one I enjoy singing with more, than you. You’re the only girl I know who can go toe to toe with me in the Tito’s, and nobody makes me laugh harder than you. This has been an ABSOLUTE dream come true. I am so unbelievably proud of us, and our song, and to say, matter of factly, that I finally know what genre of music I make….AND ITS COUNTRY!”
King continued, “To all of my fans who have been with me through all of the sounds and songs I have made, I am so grateful to be on this journey with you! Thank you to everyone who lets me express myself. There is no ceiling or box made to fit my ass! So I don’t plan on having them be part of the equation!”
“Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” from Miranda Lambert & Elle King is the number-1 song in country music this week.
