Pistol Annies At Grand Ole Opry
The Pistol Annies are a trio of country singers. Miranda Lambert, Angeleena Presley, and Ashley Monroe formed the band on a whim after Monroe introduced Lambert to the music of her longtime friend, Presley. The three ladies clicked and immediately began writing songs together. Under the nicknames “Holler Annie” (Presley), “Hippie Annie” (Monroe), and “Lone Star Annie” (Lambert), the trio sings songs with a healthy dose of defiant attitude. Many of the Pistol Annies' songs also contain realism and a reflection of the parts of life that most of modern country doesn't mention, like “Beige,” written from the perspective of a young bride who feels judged, and “Housewife's Prayer,” about the frustration of the inability to make ends meet. These ladies can also do rowdy, fun songs just as well as they do heartache; their fist single “Hell on Heels” is a sassy, girl-power country anthem.
