[photogallerylink id=43927 align=right] [lastfm link_type=""]Miranda Lambert[/lastfm] gives us a little insight on how the group [lastfm link_type=""]Pistol Annies [/lastfm]got started. Miranda says it went down this way.
“Sittin’ on the couch, I’m at my farm in Oklahoma, Ashley and I were writin’ songs, and we wrote a couple songs that are now on the record that sort of sparked this idea of bein’ in a girl band. Called Ang — and she had introduced me to Angaleena’s music — and just loved it…fell in love with it. And so we asked Ang, ‘You want to be in a girl band?’ I mean, literally, it just went from the couch to this.”
Hell on Heels will be available digitally everywhere tomorrow, with the CD available exclusively at PistolAnnies.com. I’d like you to get to know your Annies right off the bat. There’s “Hippie Annie”–Ashley; “Holler Annie”–Angaleena; and Miranda is “Lone Star Annie.” And just incase you were wondering if there was a Pistol Andy, the answer is yes. The Annies honored Miranda’s husband Blake Shelton with the title after he co-wrote the album track “Family Feud” with the trio, but that’s the only song he helped write, all the other songs were written by one or more of the Annies.
