Angaleena Presley Collaborates With Chris Stapleton, Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe On New Project

Angaleena Presley joined forces with co-writers like her Pistol Annies partners-in-crime Miranda Lambert and Ashley Monroe, Guy Clark, and Chris and Morgane Stapleton for her latest album, Wrangled, which is due out April 21.

Presley co-produced the 12-track CD with Oran Thornton (Eric Church, David Nail), who also co-wrote two tracks on the album, “Motel Bible,” and “Mama I Tried.”

The album was recorded at the famed “Ronnie’s Place” in Nashville. “Only Blood, ” penned with fellow East Kentuckian Stapleton, features Morgane Stapleton’s vocals, while “Good Girl Down” reportedly yielded unforgettable moments with legend Wanda Jackson. Hip hop artist Yelawolf offered vocals on the track “Country,” and Presley’s compadres Lambert and Monroe helped co-write “Dreams Come True” on the new project.

“Wrangled is an explicitly forthright journey through my experience in the business of country music. I tried to tackle uncomfortable realities like the discrimination against female artists at the height of bro-country, the high school mentality of Music Row and the pain that’s just beneath the surface of the road to stardom,” says Presley. “Covered in elbow grease and sacrifice, I set out to shed the skin of my ‘dream’ Nashville by painting a musical picture of loss, surrender, resurrection, redemption, and connection with real people who make and support honest music.”
