Not only was the number one a big deal for the singer in itself, it proved to be an even bigger achievement considering it was the first time an all-female duet had reached the top in almost 30 years.

The last song to do so was Reba McEntire and Linda Davis' Does He Love You back in 1993, making this historic achievement all the more special for Miranda.

She shared a heartfelt statement, saying: "Drunk is number 1!!! @elleking is one of my favorite artists and one of my favorite people to be around. I am proud to call her my friend and I'm so glad she asked me to do this song with her. 

"The fact that a duet by 2 women hasn't been a number 1 in country music since 1993 is crazy to me. So the fact that we got here today means even more because it's bigger than us. Thanks @reba and Linda for paving the way."
