Remember When: Kelsea Ballerini, Kelly Clarkson and Carly Pearce Joined Forces for “You’re Drunk, Go Home”

“You’re Drunk, Go Home” (usually stylized in all capital letters) was released on Ballerini‘s album, Subject to Change. The recently announced Voice coach tapped the two singers to join her on this classic country toe-tapper.

I bet you still live with your mama
Down in her basement, tryin’ to be Nirvana
Playing with your guitar all afternoon, mm

In the song, the three artists shoo away a bad boy. You got the kinda face where it mighta been a maybe / But you got a lot to learn ’bout flirtin’ with a lady, the lyrics read. The trio took to the CMA stage in 2022 to perform this song. It was a masterclass on stage presence and stellar live vocals.

You’re drunk, go home
If you’re trying to hook up
Gotta do it alone
The way you’re slurring and the way you stumble
Ain’t no way you’re gonna get my number
Hey, walk away, so me and my girls can do our thing
I ain’t looking for a one night rodeo

Ballerini kicked off the performance with a bang, before calling her duet partners up to the stage. Of course, Ballerini and Pearce wowed in this country number. But, Clarkson also made a strong showing, despite typically operating in the pop space.

The performance ended up being one of the highlights from the night. Revisit this stellar collaborative performance, below.
