Yes, I can say some nasty things about certain current acts, but there are those who've kept the quality high and the music real.  Miranda Lambert has been one of them and so have the Pistol Annies,  made up of Lambert, Angaleena Presley and Ashley Monroe. I weighed in on their debut album Hell On Heels back in 2011.  And in the next week, I'll be reviewing Monroe's new solo album for the PG, and the new album closer to the release date.

May 7, Columbia Nashville releases the trio's sophomore effort, Annie Up.  It'll be available on CD, Digital Download and on vinyl.  It's 12 songs, all co-written by either all three or other combinations.  Presley wrote one tune herself.  And they alone wrote the stuff.  They didn't need the usual Music Row hack writers to help them, which speaks volumes about the writing skills of all three alongside their considerable vocal skills.

This is the first single, "Hush Hush."
