Pistol Annies – Hell Of A Holiday (CD). Sony Music.
Release Date : October 22nd 2021
Christmas album by the country music trio comprising Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley. Full of yuletide treats, ‘Hell of a Holiday’ includes ten festive original tracks written by the Annies with their signature winking humour, while also honouring the spirit of the season. The title track conjures images of the hectic holiday whirlwind that arrives every 1st November, while ‘Snow Globe’ dreams of a romantic winter wonderland. Elsewhere, a family of country-fried characters come to life, and there’s even a new ode to Santa himself. The project also features their take on standards including ‘Sleigh Ride’, and Merle Haggard’s ‘If We Make it Through December’, plus a reimagined ‘Auld Lang Syne’. This marks the fourth studio album for the trio, following their Grammy-nominated 2018 project ‘Interstate Gospel’.
