King, Lambert get "Drunk" acoustically
Friday, September 10, 2021
– Elle King and Miranda Lambert released an acoustic version of their song, "Drunk (And I Don't Wanna Go Home)," today.
This new acoustic version follows the news yesterday of their 2021 CMA Award Nomination for "Musical Event of the Year."
King also announced the birth of her first child, Lucky Levi, with her fiancé Dan Tooker.
"Drunk" debuted at number one in early March on both Billboard's Rock Digital Sales Chart and the Country Digital Song Sales Chart. King is the first female artist in history to have scored four radio number one singles on different formats including Adult Pop Songs, Adult Alternative Songs, Alternative Songs and Country Airplay charts.
"Drunk" was co-written by 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."
King also was a special guest on Lambert's 2019 Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars tour. King's 2016 collaboration with Dierks Bentley on "Different for Girls," also hit the top of the Mediabase/Country Aircheck and Billboard country airplay charts and won a CMA Award for "Musical Event of the Year" the same year.

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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
