Elle King & Miranda Lambert, "Drunk (and I Don't Wanna Go Home)"
In this time of no bars and home confinement, the refrain of this anthem to excess (out now via RCA) has particular resonance. Elle and ACM multi-nominee Miranda sing the shit out of this jam (penned by King and producer Martin Johnson), which is accompanied by a vibrant, '80s-themed visual full of debauchery, familial mortification and karaoke. Cheers.
