The band recalls being selected by Carrie for the big performance.“When we were standing there and it was happening we were still wondering how it happened,” they said. “She has been in the industry for so long and she’s really stayed on the top. She’s never been in the tabloids for anything weird and she represents our genre to the upmost. And you know what? She seriously somehow just keeps getting better and prettier!”

Runaway June is the first all-girl trio to notch a Top 30 single since SheDaisy did it a decade ago.
