Hell on Heels
Not too long ago I was reading one of those end of the year lists and it mentioned this band who I’d heard about but hadn’t heard. Since I’ve been a fan of Miranda Lambert since her Nashville Star days, this was definately something I wanted to check out.
Luckily for me, Ran is on Sony and so are the Pistol Annies. And what does that mean, boys and girls? That’s right…it’s on Freegal! Yeah! There are 10 tracks on this debut, so in just two short weeks you could be enjoying all the Pistol Annies fun.
Not since the Trio of Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, and Emmylou Harris has traditional country music sounded so good. (I suppose I should mention those chicks from Dixie, seeing as how they were a trio as well, but their music was so much more modern that it’s kinda like comparing apples and maniacs.)
Pistol Annies is made up of Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe, and Angaleena Presley. Their music is pretty hard core country, but they’ve fancied it up a bit for us. Think Gretchen Wilson minus half the party plus a lacy dress – and a shotgun.
The album clocks at a very radio-friendly 30 minutes. If you only pick one, download the title track – it’ll have you tapping your boots in no time. With a free download, what do you have to lose?
