Miranda Lambert Rocked CMA Music Festival With Pistol Annies & Some "Hell On Heels"

Miranda Lambert helped to close out the CMA Music Festival last night in front of a packed stadium at LP Field. Her blistering, 30-minute set included her Number One singles, “White Liar,” “The House That Built Me,” and “Heart Like Mine,” all from her CMA and ACM Album of the Year, Revolution. 
 
During her show, Lambert’s trio, Pistol Annies, performed their self-penned song, “Hell On Heels,” which is available for purchase now at www.pistolannies.com. The song 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.”

Comprised of Lambert and singer-songwriters Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley, the genesis of the group was during a songwriting session with Lambert and Monroe. While writing and sharing stories, Monroe decided that Lambert and Presley needed to meet, and a midnight phone call with the three of them launched what became Pistol Annies. 

“Hell On Heels” was the theme of Lambert’s show last night. In addition to the performance of the song, Lambert put an exclamation point on the end of “Only Prettier” when she heel-spiked and burst a beach ball that landed on stage. To a roaring crowd, Lambert asked, “Is it just me or do those beach balls irritate the hell out of y’all?”

  1. Miranda Lambert was the only performer at CMA fanfest who seemed to be all about herself. She did not thank the fans for anything at her performance. She wanted everyone to hold the beach balls so they could be sure to listen to her sing, and she required applause, not once--but twice, for the fact that she got married. She came across as a spoiled brat, and I will never pay for a ticket to see her again. If she wants to be a country music star, she needs to learn and show a little humility.
