Pistol Annies Cancel All Upcoming Concerts

June 13th, 2013

Pistol Annies have abruptly canceled all of their concerts that were scheduled for June, leaving Miranda Lambert to fill in as a solo act at the upcoming shows.

The trio released their second album, ‘Annie Up,’ in May and were expected to tour in support of it, mingling the dates between Lambert’s solo appearances and Ashley Monroe’s promotional efforts for her recent solo album ‘Like a Rose.’ Lambert performed solo at the Winstock Festival on June 7, where the group were scheduled, and will perform solo at the Country Stampede on June 30.

According to Keepin’ It Country, the only explanation provided to the promoter of the Winstock Festival was an email that read, “Due to unforeseen circumstances, Pistol Annies are unable to appear on any dates in June but Miranda Lambert will perform instead.”

The trio were expected to perform at last week’s CMT Awards, but did not. Lambert and Monroe both attended the awards show, and both appeared separately at events during the CMA Music Festival. Angaleena Presley was not photographed at either the CMT Awards or during CMA Music Festival. According to a tweet from Sirius XM’s The Highway, Monroe has confirmed that the trio are still friends and will continue to make music together.

The trio’s website offers no further information. The Events section simply reads, “There are no events at this time.”

Billboard Speaks With The Pistol Annies

April 25th, 2013

It’s happy hour at the Timothy Demonbreun House, a dignified Nashville mansion with historical significance, and as Pistol Annies knock back a couple after a long media day for new album “Annie Up,” the ladies are very much enjoying each others’ company as they make a little history of their own.

Pistol Annies are made up of three maverick country singer/songwriters — Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley — at different positions on the upward trajectory of their respective career arcs. Even if the Annies are all successful as solo artists, particularly Lambert (who is clicking on all cylinders at radio, retail and headlining tours), whatever you do, don’t refer to the group as a “side project.”

“This not some kind of vanity project,” observes producer Frank Liddell. “They’re dead serious about it and they want it to succeed.”

The three united under a common bond of fierce independence, a rebellious nature, and heavyweight songwriting chops, surprising (and overwhelmingly appealing to) not only the country music “establishment,” as it were, but catching the ears of cynical music press and such artists as Neil Young, who casually tossed out in his new autobiography that the group are “writing their asses off.”

That, Mr. Young, would be correct. The Annies’ first album, 2011’s “Hell On Heels” emerged rather quietly but didn’t stay quiet long, simultaneously out alt.-ing alt.country, out roots-ing roots and out rocking country rock.

With insightful, masterfully delivered songs about love, lust, robust indulgence of a wide range of substances, and domestic dysfunction at all levels, the Annies were, and are, completely dialed into the consciousness of what a certain segment of young American adults are living today, and strikingly divergent from much of what is happening on the contemporary country scene today. Frank, insightful, sharp and totally engaging, songs like “Takin’ Pills,” “Beige,” and “Trailer For Rent” tapped into the spectrum of frustration and celebration in a manner that recalls not only the riskier work of Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn, or Lucinda Williams, but also brings to mind certain commentaries by the likes of Haggard, Cash, John Prine or even Young himself.

Still, Pistol Annies’ perspective is proudly feminine. “It’s inside insight into how women’s minds work,” says Presley. “Listen and take notes, boys.”

More often than on the first record, all three Annies (and only them) are involved in writing the songs on “Annie Up,” and much like last time, each are unfiltered doses of spirit, poignancy, romance, and sharp social observation. Hanging with Pistol Annies is, as Liddell puts it, “flat-out fun,” and here we talk about the new record, their songwriting, and how their evolution as artists and people. Throughout, Pistol Annies show they don’t take themselves too seriously, as long as you don’t call it a side project.

Billboard: The first record seemed to come out of nowhere, but people are definitely paying attention now. Did you feel any pressure to equal or top the last record?

Angaleena Presley: If the songs wouldn’t have come on their own, the way they did, then I don’t think we would be sitting here right now.

Miranda Lambert: We don’t want to force it, ever.

Angaleena: We say our A&R guy, his name’s Jesus Christ. He brought us together, and he gave us the songs, and the time to spend with each other, and the music drives what we do.
