Runaway June is turning heads with the recent release of their brand new single, “We Were Rich.”

The song marks the trio’s first radio single with new member Natalie Stovall. The heartwarming track celebrates the simple life and things that money cannot buy.

“We didn’t have it all but we all thought we did/ And Mama always said that we were blessed and I believed her/ I never thought the grass was greener/ On the other side of our old chain link fence/Yeah, We Were Rich,” they sing.

The new version of “We Were Rich” features Stovall on fiddle as well as her background vocals.

“’We Were Rich’ is probably our favorite song on the record and it’s been a long time coming, this one being a single,” says the trio’s Naomi Cooke. “We are so excited to finally be able to say that. It is a song about your childhood or your adolescence. It’s nostalgia reminiscing about back before you knew anything was wrong in the world, back before when you thought you had it all.”

“We Were Rich” follows the release of Runaway June’s record-breaking single, “Buy My Own Drinks,” which marked the first time a female trio reached the Top 5 on Mediabase Country chart since The Chicks in 2003.

Fans can catch Runaway June on tour with Luke Bryan in 2021.
