This is the second time in a week that the Pistol Annies have reunited for an on stage performance. They showed up at a Miranda Lambert concert in Rodger, AR to sing “Hell of Heels” and “Takin’ Pills”. The country trio made up of Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley.
We are ready for another Pistol Annies record!
Here’s what the Pistol Annies tell The Boot about a reunion and new record,
The Annies have been known to show up at Lambert’s shows: In October of 2015, they performed together at an Augusta, Ga., stop on Lambert’s Roadside Bars and Pink Guitars Tour; however, they haven’t released any new music since their sophomore disc, Annie Up, in 2013. That June, the trio abruptly canceled all of their upcoming concerts, and rumors of a breakup began swirling, but all three artists have denied the rumors of tension among them.
“We’ve been missing each other a lot,” Monroe said in November of 2015, adding that a reunion is “definitely brewing.”
“We have a lot of song ideas going,” she said at the time. “I feel like it’s soon.”
Still, Monroe explains, they “never want to force it.”
“You know, Pistol Annies started out that it was just organic: Me and Miranda thought of it on a couch; she had never met Angaleena, and we called her and got started,” Monroe recalls. “… If we’re too busy, then don’t force it. There’ll be a time when things let up a little bit, then we’ll make more music.”
In the years since Pistol Annies’ last album, Lambert, Monroe and Presley have all released solo projects. Lambert is set to release a brand-new single, “Vice,” on Monday (July 18).
