Our June Swag Session Alumni, the ladies from Runaway June recently released a music video for their sassy single, “Buy My Own Drinks.” The trio is making waves in the country music scene this year with an ACM nomination for New Vocal Group of the Year, as well as, making their national TV debut on NBC’s Today Show.
The girls are proving that they’re ones to watch, as they continue the momentum with their new music video. The infectious song promotes women empowerment, as do the visuals. The colorful and confident video showcases group solidarity, as well as, independence. Each woman participates in their own tasks, such as washing their dog, writing and playing guitar, and painting, while mini-mes of each woman reflect the same tasks and mood. According to Runaway June songstress, Naomi Cook, “’The ‘Little Junes’ were the perfect way to capture that carefree feeling of returning to your inner child and getting a little wild. In doin’, that we find true liberation.”
Check out the liberating video below.
The song was co-written by Runway June’s Naomi Cooke, Hannah Mulholland, and Jennifer Wayne with songwriters, Hillary Lindsey, and Josh Kear. The bop is truly an anthem for girls and women of all ages. Watch the video below to see our live session with Runaway June, where they sing “Buy My Own Drinks,” and “Wild Wild West,” both off their debut EP.
The powerhouse group of ladies will lend their vocals as openers on Carrie Underwood’s ‘The Cry Pretty Tour 360,’ this fall, accompanied by fellow female country duo Maddie and Tae. The girl-power tour stops at the iconic Madison Square Garden on October 2nd. Find tickets here. In addition, the trio will play CMA Fest this June, at the Riverfront Stage.
