Pistol Annies Fight Like Family
The Pistol Annies (Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley) are as close as sisters, for better and worse. Recently, the trio shared that they insist on riding the same tour bus together (“We travel in a pack”), but sometimes that means there’s nowhere to go when they fight. Oh, yeah — they fight.
“We’ve had a bunch,” Monroe tells Taste of Country, “but what happens with us when we fight, it’s like a family fight. It’s real passionate and we cry and we’ll scream and then when we make up, we make up real fast too. Because we can’t stand being mad at each other.”
The trio’s new album ‘Annie Up’ is expected on May 14. The first single, ‘Hush Hush,’ describes a similar unstable family dynamic. “The point is acceptance, and love regardless,” Presley says of the single.
“And you only get one,” Lambert adds before the women joke that it’d be interesting to interview their families.
This week, the group joined Blake Shelton to film the new video for his single ‘Boys ‘Round Here.’ They plan to hit the road together later this year, in between solo tour dates for Lambert and Monroe. If things go right, one day they may be able to afford three separate tour buses — but that wouldn’t drive them apart.
“We decided that if we ever get to have our own bus, we’re gonna have a party bus, a getting ready bus and a sleepin’ bus,” Presley says.
