Duffy may fire me for posting about country music on Donewaiting but I find something appealing about 3-part female harmonies sung with southern accents. With the Dixie Chicks on hiatus (yes, I own all of their CDs), I’ve been looking for a trio to fill in and thankfully stumbled upon Pistol Annies last night.
Even if you don’t follow country music (and I don’t), the name Miranda Lambert might ring a bell – she’s an up-and-coming star (and Grammy winner) in the country music world and somebody that I would love to go out drinking with (Miranda – next time you’re in Columbus, let’s meet at the Surly Girl Saloon!). Lambert’s partnered up with like-minded singer/songwriters Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley in Pistol Annies and the trio’s debut, Hell on Heels, was released today. Maybe a contender for my “Best of 2011″ list.
Don’t worry, I’m sure Wes has some sort of rap/hip-hip post coming up soon that’ll knock this off the top of the page!
