Recently crowned ACM Female Vocalist of the Year, Miranda Lambert, will be “On Fire” when she hits the stage on Friday, August 10 plus a special appearance by the Pistol Annies at the Bismarck Civic Center.
All of Miranda’s hard work has earned her the coveted ACM Female Vocalist of the Year for the 3rd time in a row. Her latest release ‘Four the Record’, the fastest selling album of her career, recently went Gold and was recognized by the ACM for Album of the Year.
The Pistol Annies CD of the same name debuted at #1 on the country chart and has gotten widespread critical acclaim. The new female trio featuring Miranda Lambert, Angaleena Presley, and Ashley Monroe has been creating a huge buzz across the country ever since their live debut last April on the ABC special, “Women of Country.” Their focus and title track Hell on Heels reached the Top 20 on the digital country song charts and is gaining fans across the country.
The Pistol Annies have been making serious music together for years and Miranda Lambert is not shy about the inspiration she receives from her band mates. “We have chemistry as friends, we have chemistry on stage, and we have chemistry in our writing”, says Miranda. “It’s one of my favorite times on set because I get to step into a different role.” “These girls needed to be in the spotlight a long time ago.” What began on a whim in Miranda’s cabin two Novembers ago has become a musical endeavor near and dear to each “Annies” heart. Fans aren’t going to want to miss the Pistol Annies.
