Lambert, King get "Drunk"

Monday, March 1, 2021 – Miranda Lambert and Elle King teamed up on "Drunk (And I Don't Wanna Go Home)."

King wrote the song with Martin Johnson, who also produced the track, and was recorded in Nashville and New York pre-pandemic.

This is the second time the two female performers have recorded together with their first release "Fooled Around and Fell in Love" (along with Maren Morris, Ashley McBryde, Tenille Townes and Caylee Hammack) going on to win the 2020 ACM Award for "Music Event of The Year." King also was a special guest on Lambert's 2019 Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars tour.

To accompany the track, the pair met up in Nashville to film an '80s-inspired wedding video starring King as the bride and Lambert as her maid of honor complete with a cameo from King's real-life fiancé as the groom. The video was shot in January by directing duo Running Bear.

King said, "The true story of this song sums up our wild friendship. Miranda is someone I have looked up to as a songwriter, musician, performer and human being for a long time. So our tumbleweed snowball story of getting to know each other is the ultimate real deal kinda thing. Nobody revs me up, kicks my ass on stage, or treats me more like family than Miranda Lambert. Our rowdy reputations proceed us, so who else could sing this song together besides us? Crawling out of such a crazy year, still full of so many unknowns, I ultimately couldn't think of another person I'd rather come out singin' and swingin' with than the most badass chick I know. Miranda."

Lambert said, "I think this fun song was born from our becoming friends over the last couple of years. We are new friends, but it really feels like we are old friends, and I felt like that immediately when I met her at one of her shows. Since then, we've toured together and sang on stage together, hung out and partied together, recorded together and so much more. This song just feels like the natural transition to the after party."

CD reviews for Miranda Lambert

CD review - Platinum Cynics might think that Miranda Lambert is presumptuous in entitling her fifth disc "Platinum" and, in effect, assuming she'll get her plaque for selling 1 million units. But Lambert says that isn't the case, but more a matter of style, looks and feel. Lambert also wrote and discovered a lot of excellent songs that fit her quite well in an album in which she exposes her inner self as she matures. That may never more apparent than in the country rocker Lambert wrote ...
CD review - Revolution Every once in a while an album comes along that restores your faith in mainstream country music. Miranda Lambert's "Revolution" is just such a recording. It's not revolutionary, as the title might suggest. Instead, this CD is chock full of topnotch songs that are both memorable and sincere and never sound slick or overproduced. (Come to think of it, such old school values as these may in fact be revolutionary around Nashville). Lambert vocalizes a bit like a little girl at ...
CD review - Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Even though it sounds like a cliche from the big book of country songwriting, the truth is that, when the timing's right, a loser can end up being the biggest winner of all. Today's object lesson comes from Miranda Lambert and her sophomore album, the follow-up to her 2005 near-platinum debut, "Kerosene." Imagine for a moment if the then-19-year-old had actually taken the crown in 2003's Nashville Star and then been forced into the studio within weeks to be primped and ...
