The Grimey Backwoods & Gatsby Melody…
From Tennessee born Ashley Monroe “Hippie Annie”, Kentucky beauty Angaleena Presley “Holler Annie”, and Texas gem Miranda Lambert “Lone Star Annie” ring in the new grimey country trio of the century. With Presley and Monroe’s background work on Nashville’s Music Row, and Monroe’s work with indy famed rocker and producer Jack White at the table. Alongside one of country music’s biggest stars Lambert bringing her three successful number one albums (Kerosene-2005, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend-2007, Revolution-2009) to the table. It’s simple to see that there are masterminds at play known as Pistol Annies.
The newly formed trio got right to business writing and recording songs, and with barely six tracks down. Pistol Annies were offered the incredible opportunity for an official debut on the Academy of Country Music’s Girls Night Out on CBS in April of 2011. Fighting through the nerves these ladies proved their Gatsby sides with their first live band practice being only moments before the show at rehearsal the day of. With the declaration of wicked, raw girl power dished out at every show and the marrying of these three distinct voices together. Pistol Annies are sure to be blazing saddles and rocking stages for some time to come!
The Pistol Annies first album and hit single “Hell On Heels” says it all! And the equal parts sass, heartache, and hard knocks in this album are the perfect orange twist to go with that perfect Seelbach. Sitting back and feeling Gatsby comes easy as these ten tracks walk you through the blend of Classic Tennesee Country in Monroe, the Kentucky Bluegrass of Presley, and the Hard Edged Outlaw Honky Tonk of Lambert. So sit back and enjoy the Grimey train ride at the heels of the Gatsby Pistol Annies “Hell On Heels”
