As The Boot first reported earlier this month, the Pistol Annies have joined member Miranda Lambert on her On Fire tour. Their first appearance will be tonight (April 26) in Fresno, Calif. Tour guests Jerrod Niemann and Chris Young will continue their stints on the journey, as well.
“We have chemistry as friends, we have chemistry on stage, and we have chemistry in our writing,” Miranda says about her Pistol Annies cohorts, Angaleena Presley and Ashley Monroe. “It’s one of my favorite times during my show because I get to step into a different role.”
The time could prove to be twice as productive as the girls prepare to record their sophomore album. “Our goal on this next record is to write everything in our family, just the three of us girls again,” Miranda tells The Boot. “The new album will be what you expect: three country girls singing about three country girls’ lives. I’m looking forward to getting back in the studio with them. That will be our focus after the summer tour.”

The elimination of country cutie RaeLynn sent shockwaves through the audience on Tuesday’s “The Voice,” but despite getting the boot from coach Blake Shelton, the 17-year-old has high hopes for her musical future.
“The show is an amazing, amazing show… it made me a better performer,” RaeLynn told Access Hollywood following her elimination at “The Voice” in Los Angeles on Tuesday. “I wouldn’t be who I am today without the show and, you know, I’ve got tons of fans. I went from having 300 [Twitter] followers to 40,000 followers and I would have never done that if it wasn’t for this show.
“I’m so thankful for the show and I love Blake [Shelton] and Miranda [Lambert] and I know that they’re going to help me and so I’m just really, really excited about what’s to come,” she added.
The wide-eyed Texas native said that while she was “surprised” by her elimination, she was happy to concede her place to Erin Willett, the big-voiced chanteuse who recently lost her father.
“Erin’s been through so much this last year, it happened to the best person in the world,” she said. “I’m so thankful that this happened for her and she’s such a great person.”
And RaeLynn had nothing but praise for Blake and his wife, “The Voice” mentor/country superstar Miranda Lambert.
“[Blake] told me to stay who I am, and him and Miranda just have taken me under their wing and that’s so cool,” she told Access. “I mean I’ve dreamed of meeting Miranda and now she’s like, calling me all the time and being there for me and that’s just — I would have never been able to that if it wasn’t for the show.”
As you can all see the site hasn’t been updated since the ACM Awards, the reason being, I have had a death in my family. The site won’t be updated until next week at the latest. See you all soon!
