Earlier this morning, ACM nominated New Vocal Group of the Year, Runaway June, made their morning-television debut on NBC’s Today Show. They took the stage during the 10 am hour with co-anchors, Kathie Lee and Hoda, performing their latest single, “Buy My Own Drinks,” off their recently released self-titled EP. Watch the full interview and performance here.
Before performing their catchy girl-power anthem, Kathie Lee and Hoda, came to the stage with special guest Martina McBride to introduce and talk to the lovely ladies, Naomi Cooke, Hannah Mulholland, and Jennifer Wayne. When chatting to the group, Kathie Lee mentioned, “They’re the first all-female trio in over a decade to earn two top 40 hits!” With Hoda continuing by saying, “We’re so excited y’all are here with us, you guys are opening for Carrie Underwood when she goes on tour after the baby, along with Maddie and Tae…Are you pinching yourself?” The trio replying, “Yes, every moment, it’s bananas, it’s crazy!” Making the moment even cooler was having McBride standing beside them, a woman who has paved the way in this genre.
After the quick interview, the time came for the powerhouse group of ladies to take the stage, singing an anthem we all needed. The ladies brought energy to their performance, showing off their incredible talent with such confidence. The trio harmonized beautifully, as they sang their lyrics, captivating their audience at home all while leaving them empowered. At the end of the song, Kathie Lee, Hoda, and McBride came back on stage cheering the girls on and saying, “We love them!” New Yorkers, can catch Runaway June on the ‘The Cry Pretty Tour 360’ with Carrie Underwood and Maddie and Tae at the iconic Madison Square Garden on October 2nd, 2019.
