Elle King & Miranda Lambert’s “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” Reaches #1 On US iTunes Sales Chart Following ACM Awards Performance

King and Lambert opened the show.

Elle King and Miranda Lambert opened the 56th Academy of Country Music Awards with their collaboration “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home).”

Right as the ceremony was concluding, the song reached #1 on the all-genre US iTunes sales chart.

“Drunk” is one of several ACM performance selections in the Top 10. Gabby Barrett’s “The Good Ones”** is presently #3, while Ryan Hurd & Maren Morris’ “Chasing After You” holds the #6 position. Luke Combs’ “Forever After All” directly follows at #7, and Chris Stapleton’s “Maggie’s Song” is #10.

Additional ACM selections are making moves outside the Top 10 — and they could enter the region shortly.

**”The Good Ones” was already in the Top 5 prior to Barrett’s performance.
