You love to see it.

For the first time in country music history, two all-female collaborations have entered the top 10 at country radio.

“Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” by Miranda Lambert and Elle King, along with “Never Wanted To Be That Girl” by Carly Pearce and Ashley McBryde, are both within top 10 at U.S. country radio on the Mediabase chart (one of the two charts that artists and labels use to track their songs performance).

“Drunk” was co-written by Elle and Martin Johnson, and “Never Wanted To Be That Girl” was co-written by Carly, Ashley and Shane McAnally.

Currently, Elle and Miranda are at the #3 spot on Mediabase:

And Ashley and Carly are sitting at #7 on Mediabase:

For all the years not too long ago that a lot of really talented ladies were largely absent from mainstream country radio, so it’s encouraging to see these four girls in particular climbing the charts.

While one of these songs is an alternative anthem about staying out all night drinking, and the other is a classic country heartbreaker where two women find out they’re being cheated on by the same man, it’s hard to argue that they both don’t deserve to go #1 before it’s all said and done.

Ashley, Carly and Miranda are all superstars (and total badasses), and showcase the best mainstream country has to offer, and I couldn’t be happier that they’re all getting the recognition they deserve together:
