Superstars Elle King and Miranda Lambert had a lot to celebrate at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium on Monday evening (Feb. 28) as their hit duet, “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home),” officially reached Platinum status. 

The superstars were surprised backstage with plaques commemorating more than 1 million sales/equivalents of the fan-favorite track and celebrated with a performance of “Drunk” on the historic stage. 

King and Lambert’s surprise on-stage collab took place during King’s headlining show, which also 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.” 

On top of the brand new Platinum certification, “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” continues to climb the country charts and is currently in the Top 10 at country radio. The song has now amassed over 210 million on-demand streams to date.
