Hell on Heels by Pistol Annies

Miranda Lambert, more popular than ever as a solo artist, has teamed up with singer/songwriter gal pals Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley to form one of the few honest-to-goodness all-girl side projects since Dolly Parton teamed with Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt for the Trio albums.

Sparse production, unabashedly country lyrics and strong rhythm sections abound on tunes such as “Bad Example” and “Takin’ Pills,” bringing to mind songs by Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn and the aforementioned Trio. Ashley Monroe’s sweet voice is a dead ringer for Lee Ann Womack’s at times, while Angaleena’s smoky Kentucky voice blends well with Miranda’s forceful Texas twang.

They perform a sweet ode to men who love fishin’ and romancing girls with a Southern drawl on “Boys From the South.” “Hell on Heels” immediately sets a hazy mood as the trio sings hauntingly of three man-eating, gold-digging ladies who have amassed riches from men who couldn’t resist their charms.

The album’s bluesy country sound may not make waves at radio, but these ladies are on track to give country concertgoers a little hell of their own.
