Trio to hit the road with Luke Bryan in the summer of 2021
Country trio Runaway June was second most added this week behind superstar Eric Churchbehind superstar Eric Church at country radio with brand new single “We Were Rich.” Released on Wheelhouse Records, this single is an ode to realizing the happiness that money cannot buy. This single comes shortly after the addition of country powerhouse Natalie Stovall to Runaway June. Last week the trio released this new version of “We Were Rich” that includes Natalie’s impressive fiddle skills along with her background vocals. The trio also announced they will still be part of Luke Bryan’s Proud To Be Right Here Tour that is now rescheduled until 2021.
Available everywhere digitally now, this single immediately triggers a warm sense of nostalgia. “We Were Rich” takes the listener back to those backyard barbecues sipping fresh lemonade between a game of tag with family and neighbors. This up-tempo heel-tapper reminds the listener of simpler times when it didn’t take all the bell and whistles to feel rich. It is an even better reminder during this time of chaos in the world that it is the little things in life that matter most.
“We Were Rich” is probably our favorite song on the record and it’s been a long time coming, this one being a single,” says lead vocalist Naomi Cooke. “We are so excited to finally be able to say that. It is a song about your childhood or your adolescence. It’s nostalgia reminiscing about back before you knew anything was wrong in the world, back before when you thought you had it all.”
Their new single “We Were Rich” comes shortly after the trio made history with their record breaking single “Buy My Own Drinks” which marked the first time a female trio has broken into the top five on the Mediabase Country chart since The Chicks in 2003.
Stovall joined the trio that also features Jennifer Wayne last month, following the departure of founding member Hannah Mulholland, who decided to be in California with her new husband. Stovall has performed as a solo artist and as frontwoman of Natalie Stovall and the Drive. The band was previously signed by Warner Bros. in which Wayne repped before becoming a performer.
