“Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” debuts at No. 1 on both the Billboard rock and country digital song charts
Elle King and Miranda Lambert’s brand new collaboration “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” is clearly the party everyone has been missing. The single debuted at No. 1 on both Billboard’s Country and Rock Digital Song Sales Chart.
The song was co-written by King with Martin Johnson, who also produced the track, and was recorded in Nashville and New York pre-pandemic.
This is the second time the two female powerhouse performers have recorded together with their first release “Fooled Around and Fell in Love” (along with Maren Morris, Ashley McBryde, Tenille Townes and Caylee Hammack) going on to win the 2020 ACM Award for “Music Event of The Year.” King also was a special guest on Lambert’s 2019 Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour.
To accompany the track, the pair met up in Nashville to film an 80s-inspired wedding video starring King as the bride and Lambert as her Maid of Honor complete with a cameo from King’s real-life fiancé as the groom. The video was shot in January by directing duo Running Bear using strict COVID protocols.
