Pistol Annies debut at #1 on Billboard Top Country Chart with new album 'Interstate Gospel'
The Miranda Lambert-led country group is sweeping the charts as Pistol Annies get set to take the stage at the CMA Awards on Wednesday
Country trio Pistol Annies claimed the No.1 spot on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart this week with their third studio album 'Interstate Gospel'. The album follows the trio's previous releases, 'Annie Up' (2013) and 'Hell On Heels' (2011), and is streaming now on all major platforms.
The all-female band, comprised of Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley, celebrated the RCA Records Nashville release with multiple high-profile TV appearances, including performances on 'Good Morning America' and 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon'.
The platinum-selling group also brought their unique live show coast to coast for three sold-out concerts in Nashville, New York City and Los Angeles.
Annies recently dropped a music video for the lead single 'Got My Name Changed Back,' which saw the trio celebrate Lambert changing her name back to her maiden name after going through a divorce. Check out the music video below:
Lambert, Monroe and Presley collaborated to write the entire 14-track album, with the exception of the final track, 'This Too Shall Pass,' which was co-written by Monroe and Presley.
"We’ve grown a lot as artists and humans in the past five years," Pistol Annies said of the album. "This album is more mature than our last ones, but still fun. The best way to describe Interstate Gospel is that it sounds like three women came unleashed and told a bunch of truth. We didn’t hold back and we’re proud of it. Our hope is that when people listen, they feel some of the same magic that we felt when we were writing these songs."
This Wednesday, November 14, Pistol Annies are scheduled to perform at The 52nd Annual CMA Awards where Lambert is nominated for a number of trophies, including Female Vocalist of the Year. The show will air live from Nashville at 8 pm EST/7pm CST on ABC.
