Paul Klein, the lead singer of LANY joined Kelsea Ballerini to premiere a brand new song, “I Quit Drinking” tonight during the 2021 CMT Music Awards .

“You’re the reason there’s no whiskey anywhere inside this house, You’re the reason all my friends know I don’t go downtown / you’re the reason I hate champagne, never used to turn it down, you’re the only thing I want when one drop hits my mouth / baby you’re the reason, I quit drinking”

An incredible storytelling song about a break up, Ballerini’s delivery was impeccable. The duet was only amplified at the end of the performance when rain poured down on the two singers. Check back later to watch the full performance but listen to “I Quit Drinking” here.
