Miranda Lambert Won’t Let Celebrity or Side Projects Torpedo Her Solo Work
Miranda Lambert is one busy lady these days, with her own solo album and another with Pistol Annies due to be released this year. Lambert wants fans to know that her solo music will mimic that of Pistol Annies or vice versa. The projects will be quite different, and the solo singer's personal sound won't change, she says.
"I would say the biggest difference will be the influence of my friends Angaleena Presley and Ashley Monroe in Pistol Annies," Lambert tells Taste of Country of how the two albums will compare. "They are true wordsmiths and incredible musicians, and working with them will always be unique to my solo work because they each have their own personal sound."
Pistol Annies' debut album is set to be released August 23. The trio have already given listeners a taste of the 10 songs on the album with performances of the record's title track, 'Hell on Hells.'
"How lucky is it that I have two amazing singer-songwriter friends, and together we make an unstoppable musical force,” shares Lambert. “We say things in our music that women all across the country are thinking. This is a great creative outlet for me as a solo artist."
In case you're wondering, Lambert tells Taste of Country that she won't be letting her celebrity with husband Blake Shelton -- who has been seeing quite a bit of mainstream success as of late, thanks to his stint on 'The Voice' and his No. 1 album 'Red River Blue' -- negatively impact her music, either.
