The hit-making trio – comprised of Naomi Cooke (lead vocals, guitar); Hannah Mulholland (vocals; mandolin; and Jennifer Wayne (vocals; guitar) – performed their debut single “Lipstick” as well as heart-wrenching ballad “Blue Roses” to uproarious applause, standing ovations and a handwritten congratulatory note from the legendary Connie Smith who introduced Runaway June to the full house.

“It was everything that I thought it would be,” Cooke told CMT.com moments after Runaway June’s debut performance. “I just closed my eyes and I could just hear our harmonies in the song and [we were] just living in the Opry.”
