Pistol Annies came out with a new video this week and it’s an absolute HOOT. The video goes perfectly with the story of the song and all of the girls announced that their own families were starring in the video. Pay close attention to the girl’s “NICE” dresses as you watch…
Fun video right? I mean you can obviously tell whose parents are whose can’t you?? And Miranda said that was in fact her grandmother drinking from the flask. Go back and catch that part again, I’ll wait. See? Too funny!! Ok, now let’s get down to the business of their clothes. Miranda has a dress on that has ruffles at the neckline and we can hook you up with that same look, perfect for spring/summer! Here’s how we’d do it the Langston’s way!
Two BIG releases this week. First up, Pistol Annies have a new album out today called Annie Up. This is Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe and Angeleena Presley second album together as the group Pistol Annies. You’ve probably heard the first single “Hush Hush” which is a must listen. Some other songs you definitely want to check out are “Don’t Talk About Him, Tina”, “Blues Your a Buzzkill”, and “Damn Thing”, though you should probably buy the whole album because all the songs are great if you are a Pistol Annies fan. They don’t disappoint.
The next big release out today is Lady Antebellum’s Golden. They already have a hit on their hands with “Downtown”. This is their fourth studio album and includes both upbeat fun songs as well as some ballads. Definite must listens are “Goodbye Town”, “It Ain’t Pretty”, and “All for Love”. This is a fantastic album, go check it out!
Blake Shelton has a new album out today called Based on a True Story. This new album comes right on the heels of last night’s season premiere of The Voice. Blake Shelton, three-time CMA Male Vocalist of the Year and current Entertainer of the Year, is a busy guy! There are twelve tracks on this album and of course his wife Miranda Lambert and her band The Pistol Annies make an appearance as do some of this other TEAM BLAKE contestants from past seasons of The Voice. There are plenty of upbeat songs as well as ballads.
These are my must listens: Country on the Radio, Mine Would Be You, and I Found Someone.
I’ve Still Got a Finger is PURE Blake humor, so you must listen to that one! And of course his current single Sure Be Cool If You Did is already a hit. So have a listen and tell me which of the songs on this album are your favorites, it was definitely a tough decision picking out just three!
Hey guys, we’ll pick up with new music releases next week when we have some new stuff to talk about. Let’s talk about one of my favorites, Ashley Monroe. I have waited for another album of hers to come out for a long time since her 2007 album Satisfied. I seem to always go back to it plus the singles she’s released since and listen to them over and over again. She will have a new album out in March, Like A Rose, which I’m very excited about! In the meantime we can listen to her with the Pistol Annies.
My favorite songs have got to be her duet with Ronnie Dunn called I Don’t Want To, and the title track of her album, Satisfied. Also off the Satisfied album I LOVE Hank’s Cadillac and the duet with Dwight Yoakum called That’s Why We Call Each Other Baby. Both are fantastic. Ashley just has a fantastic, unique voice and I can’t wait to hear her upcoming album!
Don’t you just love the everyday wearability of her outfit? I mean it’s comfy yet elegant looking. As for the men, you can definitely all pull off Pat Monahan’s layered look by putting a basic tee under a button up, pair that with some jeans and some Dingo Harness boots and you are set!
Blake Shelton’s highly anticipated Christmas album comes out today. It’s called Cheers, It’s Christmas. This album has tons of classics and also duets. You can count on duets with his wife Miranda Lambert, her band Pistol Annies, Reba McEntire, Xenia, and Trypta-Phunk. He also reworks Michael Buble’s Home with a holiday feel and sings it as a duet. And in addition to all those duets, Shelton also sings with his very own mother on “Time For Me To Come Home”.
I pre-ordered this album y’all. We are definitely Blake Shelton fans here at Langston’s if you haven’t caught on to that yet. I’m also a huge fan of holiday music! I always start listening right after Thanksgiving, so I’m glad to have this in my arsenal!
I’ll leave you with this quote that I read via the Las Vegas Review-Journal regarding Shelton’s love for Christmas music:
…he’s a sucker for most Christmas tunes, “even the ones I don’t even know what they mean,” he said.
“There’s one on Anne Murray’s Christmas album, ‘Christmas In Killarney.’ I don’t even know where in the hell Killarney is, but it puts me in the damn Christmas mood. I listen to that one a lot.”
Pistol Annies have a fun new video out called Takin’ Pills. Have you seen it? Check it out:
Fun right? I love all three of the girls’ outfits. It’s like this country rock edgy look, very no holds barred, you know? They layer their tops and they layer their jewelry and they wear fringy boots. Its all fun all the time! So here’s the outfit that I’d put together based on this video but via Langston’s.
Back in June we told you about the new song, Hell on Heels, from new girl trio Pistol Annies, available for download. Well you guys I am here today to tell you that the whole Pistol Annies album is out today!! YIPPEE!
Pistol Annies is the trio consisting of Miranda Lambert “Lonestar Annie”, Ashley Monroe “Hippie Annie” and Angeleena Presley “Holler Annie”. They all hail from the eastern side of their home states, Miranda from East Texas, Ashley from East Tennessee, and Angeleena from East Kentucky. Miranda and Ashley met because they were label mates on Sony Records. Ashley began writing with Angeleena a few years ago and introduced her to Miranda. Apparently a late night phone call instigated the forming of the trio and we all get to benefit!!
As you know Hell on Heels is their latest single but here are a few more songs you will definitely want to go check out now: “Bad Example”, “Housewife’s Prayer”, and “Boys from the South”.
Have you heard of Pistol Annies? They are the new band consisting of Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe, and Angaleena Presley. They debuted their new single “Hell on Heels” at the ACM Girls Night Out back in April. Though the entire album isn’t out yet, I can’t wait for it based on this one single alone! It’s now available for download on their site: http://www.pistolannies.com/
