Miranda Lambert and Elle King Are Making A Historic Achievement

Miranda Lambert & Elle King Become 1st Female Duet To Go #1 In 30 Years
by

The country women are celebrating a different kind of victory today. After a three-decade-long drought, a collaboration between two females tops Billboard’s Country Airplay chart and Mediabase Country Airplay Chart again – and it’s none other than Elle King and Miranda Lambert’s “Drunk (and I Don’t Wanna Go Home).”

The pop-leaning party anthem – about staying out till dawn and drinking the night away – soars from No. 3 all the way to the No. 1 spot. While it’s hard to believe, the last time an all-female duet reached the top actually happened nearly thirty years ago, when Reba McEntire and Linda Davis did it with “Does He Love You” in 1993.

Miranda Lambert took to Instagram to celebrate their well-deserved success and express appreciation to fans – and most of all, to her friend, duet partner Elle King. “The fact that a duet by two women hasn’t been a No. 1 in Country music since 1993 is crazy to me,” the singer said, also thanking McEntire and Davis for paving the way.

This Song Is Clearly The Party Everyone Has Been Missing

“Drunk (and I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” really had a steady climb up the country charts since it was released in February 2021. The fan-favorite track also debuted No. 1 on both Billboard’s Rock Digital Sales chart and Country Digital Sales chart.

Earlier this year, the two female powerhouses were also surprised with a platinum plaque after earning a million in sales. Lambert and King then celebrated with a performance of “Drunk (and I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium.

Our heartfelt congratulations to King and Lambert as they add another record to country music history. You can listen to “Drunk (and I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” in the video below.
