Country supertrioÂ PISTOL ANNIESÂ have released today their anxiously-awaited third albumÂ INTERSTATE GOSPELÂ on RCA Records Nashville. Listen now on all streaming platforms and purchase the albumÂ HERE.
“Weâ€™ve grown a lot as artists and humans in the past five years,” the Annies stated. “This album is more mature than our last ones, but still fun. The best way to describeÂ Interstate GospelÂ is that it sounds like three women came unleashed and told a bunch of truth. We didnâ€™t hold back and weâ€™re proud of it.Â Our hope is that when people listen, they feel some of the same magic that we felt when we were writing these songs.”
Watch the trio talk more aboutÂ Interstate Gospel, along with behind-the-scenes footage of the making of the album,Â HERE.
Last night, the group celebrated the release with an appearance onÂ TheÂ TonightÂ Show with Jimmy Fallon, watch their performance of “Best Years of My Life” HERE. Tune in this morning toÂ Good Morning AmericaÂ on ABC to catch their performance of “Got My Name Changed Back.”
Penned by the Pistol Annies, the 14-track album showcases the groupâ€™s stunning harmonies,Â such as the “classic country tearjerker” (Stereogum) “Masterpiece”; “sly take on gender roles” (Variety) “Sugar Daddy”; “saucy, high-spirited” (Rolling Stone)Â “Stop Drop and Roll Oneâ€œ; “more irreverent than earnestâ€ (NPR) â€œInterstate Gospelâ€; and â€œconfession of dead-end desperation” (New York Times)Â â€œBest Years of My Life.â€Â Moving from celebratory anthems, classic country storytelling and vibey swagger, the Grammy-nominated trio are back and sounding Annie-er than ever.
The Pistol Annies’ very first single to go to Country Radio is “Got My Name Changed Back.” Fans should listen for it on their local radio stations. The fun-spirited music video for the single is out now. Watch itÂ HERE.
Following last week’s sold-out show at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium, the trio will perform a sold-out show tonight at NYCâ€™s intimate venue The Town Hall and LAâ€™s breakout downtown concert hall The Novo onÂ Nov. 7. These shows are the Anniesâ€™ way of inviting their fans into their living room to hang, talk, laugh and commiserate about real life while singing their own kind of country music.
