Country fans hoping for a reunion from female trio the Pistol Annies are in luck as Miranda Lambert has surprised several cities during her Livin’ Like Hippies Tour with a special performance by her bandmates Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley.
New music may even be on the way as several weeks ago, Lambert teased a new song that she admits might be a good fit for the band.
If this new music sees the light of day, it will mark the first album for the group since 2013’s sophomore project Annies Up. Each member of the trio is a solo artist and often Pistol Annies takes a backseat to their careers as individual artists. Longtime friends, Pistol Annies made their debut performance in 2011 during CBS’ Girls Night Out: Superstar Women of Country. Several months later they released their critically acclaimed debut album, Hell on Heels.
I covered their tour kickoff in 2012 for Billboard and the concert was a memorable one. The three artists combined sass, wit and talent for a stand-out show, I wrote at the time.
“Sharing drinks onstage, constantly complimenting each other and sharing hugs, it’s easy to see the Pistol Annies are real friends on and off the stage. ‘As you can see, we’re in slumber party mode all the time, Lambert said.”
Their songwriting talent is also showcased in much of their material as is their ability to discuss often taboo topics as can be heard on “Talkin’ Pills” and “Hush, Hush,” which you can listen to below.
