THE FRIENDS CELEBRATED AT KING’S SOLD OUT RYMAN AUDITORIUM SHOW LAST NIGHT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Last night, global entertainer Elle King brought her 2022 Drunk And I Don’t Wanna Go Home Tour to Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium, where she and friend and superstar collaborator Miranda Lambert were surprised with RIAA Platinum Certification plaques for their Top 10 smash hit “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home).”
The star-studded show featured surprise performances from Dierks Bentley, who joined Elle on stage to perform an unreleased new collaboration for the first time, and Ashley McBryde, who Elle called down to the stage from her balcony seat to help her sing “Long Haired Country Boy.” As the nightcap, Miranda surprised the electric crowd with their “rambunctious last call singalong” (Billboard).
In addition to the shining new Platinum certification, “Drunk” has amassed over 210 million on-demand streams to date and is nominated for Video of the Year at the 57th Annual ACM Awards, airing Monday, March 7.

King spent the better part of 2021 supporting her #1 hit “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home) with Miranda Lambert, which has amassed over 200 million on-demand streams, and hit #1 on both Billboard’s Rock Digital Sales Chart and Country Digital Sales Chart upon release. The track not only garnered a nomination for Musical Event of the Year at the 2021 CMA Awards, but earned King her fourth Grammy nomination (Best Country Duo/Group Performance). Additionally, the track marked King as 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.
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 current single “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home),” King released her latest EP Elle King: In Isolation in summer of 2020, a collection of raw demos/songs she’s recorded acoustically while quarantining at home.
“Elle King is a little bit country, a little bit rock n’ roll, but ultimately, she’s punk as fuck.” – Rolling Stone
“…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.” – Variety
