Please take a seat; the queens have the floor. And if you’re drunk? Return home!
Wednesday’s performance of “You’re Drunk, Go Home” by Kelsea Ballerini, Carly Pearce, and Kelly Clarkson at the 56th Annual CMA Awards demonstrated the strength of women..
In complementing denim attire, the three stars ascended the stage and sang along to the song about a lover who is extremely inebriated and tells them to get lost!
They sang, “You’re intoxicated, go home/If you’re trying to hook up, you’re on your own.” The way you’re stumbling and slurring, there’s no way I’ll give you my number..,
“You’re Drunk, Go Home” was included on Ballerini’s September-released album Subject to Change.
“This is my post-pandemic endeavor. I was forced to sit motionless, as was everyone else in the world, and I’m not very good at it “the 29-year-old singer stated at the time.
“I enjoy constantly working, performing live, and recording albums. And that was not a possibility.
During this time, I awoke and realized, ‘Oh, I’m not 19 anymore. That seems strange.’ And I have a great deal of life and time to process everything.”
She went on, “I believe that the unraveling of all the lovely, amazing experiences I’ve had over the years in my job and in my personal life unlocked this honesty and, in some ways, the courage to go there even more than the honesty. And I believe this can be heard across the entire project.”
Ballerini, who just achieved a divorce settlement with ex-husband Morgan Evans, began on a 10-night Heartfirst tour after the album’s release.
On September 30 on The Kelly Clarkson Show, 40-year-old “Breakaway” singer Kelsea Ballerini spoke humorously about her status while recording the song.
Clarkson recalled arriving at the studio with music director Jason Halbert and saying, “I had no idea I would be singing today.” “I did not know…
So I had to sing ‘You’re Drunk, Go Home’ while intoxicated, attempting to perform first soprano sections such as ‘I’m OK!'”
Clarkson also insisted it did not occur frequently: “In twenty years, this has never happened to me!” she exclaimed. “I have never ever gotten intoxicated while singing. I am currently singing “you’re drunk, go home””
Pearce, 32, who won female vocalist at last year’s ceremony and musical event of the year on Wednesday, recently sold out her first headlining engagement at Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.
She declared to her sold-out audience, “Tonight, all of my country music dreams are coming true.”
The 2022 CMA Awards are broadcast live from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on Wednesday evening.
