There’s a sound that hasn’t been heard on Country radio in quite some time – the sound of organic, three-part female harmonies, ringing strings and stories that speak the language of modern women everywhere. It’s a sound that was the backbone of a little group known as The Chicks, and now it’s making a comeback through a vocal trio named Runaway June.
Rootsy, brightly colored and mixing bluegrass tradition with dusty desert cool, Runaway June is comprised of three all-American women from different walks of life who have all “runaway” to chase the all-American dream.
Though still being relatively new, the trio has already accomplished many feats that some artists never attain in their lifetimes. This past year Runaway June marked the first time a female trio or group has broken into the top five on the Mediabase Country chart since The Chicks in 2003 with their breakout single “Buy My Own Drinks.” This song cemented their presence and proved their perseverance to spread this light-hearted anthem of independence.
