NASHVILLE, TN - Country supertrio PISTOL ANNIES have released their anxiously-awaited third album INTERSTATE GOSPEL on RCA Records Nashville.
"We’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 describe Interstate Gospel is that it sounds like three women came unleashed and told a bunch of truth. We didn’t hold back and we’re proud of it. 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 about Interstate Gospel, along with behind-the-scenes footage of the making of the album,here.
The group celebrated the release with an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Watch their performance of "Best Years of My Life" here.
Penned by the Pistols, the 14-track album showcases the group’s stunning harmonies, such as the "classic country tearjerker" (Stereogum) "Masterpiece"; "sly take on gender roles" (Variety) "Sugar Daddy"; "saucy, high-spirited" (Rolling Stone) "Stop Drop and Roll One“; "more irreverent than earnest” (NPR) “Interstate Gospel”; and “confession of dead-end desperation" (New York Times) “Best Years of My Life.” 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 it here.
