Congratulations to Pistol Annies, whose new album, titled Annie Up, was released on May 7th. Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley, appreciate what it took for their fellow Annie, Miranda Lambert, to branch out from her own career for the making of their acclaimed 2011 debut album, Hell on Heels. They said they weren’t about to shy away from risk-taking: Angaleena: “The first record — it was a big gamble, you know? And we didn’t know what was gonna happen. We just were these three girls who wanted to put out these songs, and Miranda had this whole career hanging in the balance of Miranda Lambert, the brand, and it’s like, to risk that and everything that she’d built and trust us enough to…I mean, it was like a huge risk and gamble…”  Ashley: “Yeah.”  Angaleena: “So this time, we’re like, ‘Hey, Annie up!’”  Ashley: “Let’s risk it again!”  Angaleena: “We’re doin’ it again!”  Miranda: “And it’s, I mean, the bigger you get, the higher the stakes, but it’s worth it. I mean, if you don’t grow, you die! That’s what Ang says!” Angaleena: “It’s true.”
