Runaway June’s “Buy My Own Drinks” has extended its run marking the first time a female trio has broken into the top five on the USA’s Mediabase Country chart since the Dixie Chicks in 2003. This is a thrilling triumph for the band as it also marks their first top five hit as songwriters. This milestone is part of Country music history, making them the highest charting female trio since the Dixie Chicks’ “Travelin’ Soldier” sixteen years ago. Along with earning this coveted accolade, the trio have announced their upcoming performance on ABC’S Good Morning America on October 3rd.
Not only are the members of Runaway June tremendous performers and musicians, but they are clearly successful songwriters; this song is the first top five song for each of the members as writers in which they wrote alongside Hillary Lindsey and Josh Kear. As songwriters, the members of the band wrote or cowrote a majority of the tracks on their critically acclaimed album Blue Roses.
