Just last month, King and Miranda Lambert received a nomination for a CMA Award (Musical Even Of the Year) for their hit single “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home).” Tune in this Wednesday, November 10th on ABC to see if they win.
Their hit single “Drunk” came roaring out of the gate upon release and has already racked up over 150 million streams globally. The single debuted at No. 1 in early March on both Billboard’s Rock Digital Sales Chart and the Country Digital Song Sales Chart. Additionally, King is the first female artist in history to have scored four radio No. 1 singles on different formats including Adult Pop Songs, Adult Alternative Songs, Alternative Songs and Country Airplay charts.

“Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” was clearly THE party everyone was missing. Upon its release, Stereogum wrote “this may end up being a Top 10 pop song, country song, and rock song of 2021,” and iHeart Radio called it “a party anthem all about living your best life on the spur of the moment.” “Drunk” was the top-selling song performed at the recent ACM Awards according to Billboard. Watch their performance HERE.
“Drunk” was co-written by Elle King with Martin Johnson, who also produced the track, and was recorded in Nashville and New York pre-pandemic. This is the second time King collaborated with Lambert, having recorded together their first release “Fooled Around and Fell in Love” (along with Maren Morris, Ashley McBryde, Tenille Townes and Caylee Hammack) which became “Music Event of The Year” at the “2020 ACM Awards.” Elle also was a special guest on Miranda’s 2019 Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars tour. In addition, King’s 2016 collaboration with Dierks Bentley on “Different for Girls,” also scored a No. 1 on the Mediabase/Country Aircheck and Billboard country airplay charts and won a CMA Award for “Musical Event of the Year” the same year.
About Elle King:
Multi-platinum, award-winning recording artist Elle King has enjoyed over 1.7 billion streams worldwide.
Her debut album Love Stuff featured her breakthrough single “Ex’s & Oh’s,” which earned her two GRAMMY nominations and is certified 4x times platinum. The breakthrough single hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Rock Songs Chart, topped the AAA, Hot AC, and Alternative Radio charts, leading King to become the second female artist in 18 years to reach No. 1 at the latter format. Her single “Shame,” featured on her second studio album Shake The Spirit marked King’s fourth radio #1 single. Prior to the release of her hit single “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home),” King released her latest EP Elle King: In Isolation last summer, a collection of raw demos/songs she’s recorded acoustically while quarantining at home.
Rolling Stone wrote “Elle King is a little bit country, a little bit rock n’ roll, but ultimately, she’s punk as fuck.” Variety wrote “…King churned the clotted cream of punkish country, raw R&B, crotchety rock and deep blues into rich, buttery musical drama…(she) belted, crooned, purred, sauntered and swaggered her way through a tautly rocking set…one thing became very clear: nearly every song was equally contagious, catty-cool, and hit-worthy.”
