Lambert Reaches No. 1, Revs Up Pistol Annies

Hot on the heels of her latest chart-topping single, Miranda Lambert officially released the first music from her new trio, Pistol Annies.

The newlywed was in Nashville to toast the success of “Heart Like Mine” on June 2 at Virago, where BMI hosted an intimate, celebratory dinner. Co-written by Lambert, Ashley Monroe and Travis Howard, the song is the fourth No. 1 off Lambert’s Revolution album, while it marks BMI songwriter Monroe’s third trip to the top as a songwriter.

Then on Sunday, June 19, Monroe and Angaleena Presley joined their Pistol Annies cohort onstage at the CMA Music Festival, where Lambert was one of the closing acts. They sang “Hell on Heels,” which is available for purchase now at It will be available at all digital outlets on June 28.

“I am so excited about Pistol Annies,” said Lambert. “I feel the songs we are writing are digging deeper into our country roots and getting back to music that inspired us all. Angaleena, Ashley and I are hoping more artists collaborate. This band is made up of three real country girls with three very real stories to tell.”
