Country music’s all-girl supergroup, Pistol Annies, have announced the release of their third studio album, Interstate Gospel. Due out on November 2nd, the album will consist of fourteen brand new songs co-written by all three members. The trio released the title-track along with two of the fourteen songs, in honor of the album announcement and pre-order: “Interstate Gospel,” “Best Years of My Life” and “Got My Name Changed Back.”
The supergroup is composed of country superstar Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley. The band made their debut performance in April of 2011, on the CBS special Academy of Country Music’s Girls’ Night Out: Superstar Women of Country.
The platinum-selling group began to tease their return to country music by mailing postcards directly to their fans, each with different song titles from Interstate Gospel. They also took to the band’s twitter, posting a photo of the postcards with the caption: “Thursday. We’ve got news. Stay tuned… PS: we just gotta say..y’all are smart. And if you haven’t taken a look back through the hashtag #PistolAnniesAreBack, you should.”
Last Wednesday night, Lambert reunited the trio as apart of her two-night artist-in-residence performance at the CMA Theater in the Country Music Hall of Fame. Rather than performing her solo work, she and the group only performed Pistol Annies songs, including the three new tracks as well as some old material from Hell On Heels and Annie Up.
Lambert was the Country Music Hall of Fame’s fifteenth artist-in-residence. The museum’s artist-in-residence program honors musical artists who can be credited with contributing a large and significant body of work to the canon of American popular music and is invited to use the museum’s performance venues to create unique musical experiences.
Pistol Annies had one more surprise in store for their dedicated fans this morning. Not one, but three intimate concert events. The group will play at the iconic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on October 25th then will follow with a show at Town Hall in New York City on November 2nd and conclude the round of shows at Novo in Los Angeles on November 7th.
Pre-sale tickets for these shows will go on sale Tuesday, October 2nd through the band’s fan club while general sale will begin on Friday, October 5th.
