Band to perform touching ode to home, “We Were Rich”
Wheelhouse Records’ Runaway June will be performing this Thursday (10/3) on ABC’s Good Morning America during the 8 o’clock hour. The trio recently scored their first Top five single both as artists and songwriters. The breakout hit, “Buy My Own Drinks” marked the first time a female trio or group has broken into the top five on the Mediabase Country chart since the Dixie Chicks in 2003.
Runaway June will perform their nostalgic record, “We Were Rich,” Thursday morning on GMA from their critically-acclaimed debut album, Blue Roses, produced by legends Dann Huff and Ross Copperman. The album also includes the anthemic Top five hit “Buy My Own Drinks,” as well as their upcoming single “Head Over Heels,” which ships to Country Radio this month.
Since Naomi Cooke, Hannah Mulholland and Jennifer Wayne formed four years ago, Runaway June has become an ACM and CMT nominated band, been named CMT’s “Next Women of Country,” scored major tours and opening slots with some of the biggest names and icons in music (including Garth Brooks) performed on national TV including the CMA Awards, ACM Awards, CMT Awards and others, and soon to be GMA. The trio has received high praise and raves from dozens of critical outlets, all while constantly digging deeper to fill out a sound that connects them to the tradition of Country music and its devoted fans. They are on the road through the fall, supporting seven-time Grammy winner and Pollstar’s three-time top female country touring artist Carrie Underwood on the Cry Pretty Tour 360. Sponsored by CALIA, the tour kicked off on May 1 in Greensboro, NC, playing a total of 55 arenas across the U.S. and Canada promoted by AEG Presents. Tickets for the concerts can be purchased here.
