ACM nominated trio Runaway June offer an empowering, can-do message in the video for “Buy My Own Drinks.”
The feisty clip highlights each band members’ self-made spirit and how all three are unique. Using adorable flashbacks to their childhood, three pint-sized actresses wait for no one to chase their dreams. Lead singer Naomi Cooke was a musical junkie, busking on street corners. Vocalist/guitarist Jennifer Wayne loved animals and sets up shop grooming dogs. And vocalist/mandolin player Hannah Mulholland couldn’t get enough of her paint brush.
“The ‘Little Junes’ were the perfect way to capture that carefree feeling of returning to your inner child and getting a little wild,” said Cooke in a press release.”In doing that we can find true liberation.”
It all comes together in the upbeat track’s chorus, set up as a barroom kiss-off but actually telling a smiling story of self reliance.
“I can buy my own drinks / I can pay my own tab / And at the end of the night, when they cut on the lights / I can call my own cab,” the Junes croon.
“Buy My Own Drinks” appears on Runaway June’s self-titled 2018 EP. The trio are nominated for New Duo or Group of the Year at the April 7 ACM Awards. And they’ll support Carrie Underwood on her Cry Pretty Tour 360 starting in May.
