Elle King and Miranda Lambert‘s Grammy-nominated single “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” has reached No. 1 on both Billboard’s Country Airplay and the Mediabase/Country Aircheck charts.
The Platinum-certified track topping the charts marks the first time a female duet has reached the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart since Reba McEntire and Linda Davis’ “Does He Love You” in 1993. It also makes King and Lambert the second female duet to top Billboard’s Country Airplay chart since its creation in 1990.
“’Drunk’ is number 1! Elle 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 shares. “The fact that a duet by two women hasn’t been a No. 1 in country music since 1993 is crazy to me. So that we got here today means even more because it’s bigger than us. Thanks Reba and Linda 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!”
“Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home),” which has over 275 million streams worldwide, was named a finalist for Top Rock Song at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards. The track also hit No. 1 on both Billboard’s Rock Digital Sales Chart and Country Digital Sales Chart upon its release in February of 2021.
