Miranda Lambert’s Pistol Annies are celebrating the release of their debut album Hell on Heels today. Friends Miranda, Angeleena Presley and Ashley Monroe have long been fans of each other’s music, which is exactly how Miranda knew they were the perfect bandmates. “Sittin’ on the couch, I’m at my farm in Oklahoma, Ashley and I were writin’ songs, and we wrote a couple songs that are now on the record that sort of sparked this idea of bein’ in a girl band. Called Ang — and she had introduced me to Angaleena’s music — and just loved it…fell in love with it. And so we asked Ang, ‘You want to be in a girl band?’ I mean, literally, it just went from the couch to this.” Hell on Heels features songs written by the girls themselves, with the exception of “Family Feud” which was co-written by Miranda’s hubby Blake Shelton.
