Runaway June Make Confident ‘Today’ Debut With ‘Buy My Own Drinks’ [Watch]
Runaway June gave an empowered performance of their latest single "Buy My Own Drinks" on the Today show on Nov. 1.
The trio of Naomi Cooke, Hannah Mulholland and Jennifer Wayne had all the confidence while delivering their girl power hit for a national audience. With Cooke on lead vocals and Wayne and Mulholland providing smooth harmonies, the three singers tell the story of a self-sufficient woman who's secure in the fact that she can take herself out for a solo night on the town without the help of anyone else.

The trio sings every word with conviction and bring energy and enthusiasm to the stage as they proclaim: "I can walk my own self to the front door / I can take my own self to bed / I can medicate my own headache / I can be my own boyfriend."
"Buy My Own Drinks" is the first single from Runaway June's 2018 self-titled EP.
"There's a shift sometimes that happens after a breakup where it's like 'I can make myself happy, I need to make myself happy.' I feel like everybody feels that energy," Cooke tells Taste of Country of the song. "Singing it out to people or hearing someone say 'That made me feel really good, and I reminded myself to love myself first,' that's really the message of the song."
The trio of fierce singers will achieve a major milestone in 2019: they've been selected as one of the acts to open for Carrie Underwood on her massive Cry Pretty Tour 360, which kicks off May 1 in North Carolina.
