Pistol Annies, ‘Hell on Heels’ – Song Review
You can picture a deserted, dusty road at dusk as soon as the spare, atmospheric guitars start dueling at the beginning of this one. The trio — Lambert as “Lone Star Annie,” Angaleena Presley as “Holler Annie” and Ashley Monroe as “Hippie Annie” — sound quite menacing (but also like they’d be worth the trouble) as they take turns talking about the houses, rings and such things they’ve swindled righteously from no-good men.
Tension fills the air like it does just before a thunderstorm as the ladies head out to deal more misery: “I’m hell on heels / Say what you will / I done made the devil a deal / He made me pretty / He made me smart / And I’m gonna break a million hearts / I’m hell on heels / And baby, I’m coming for you.”
Pistol Annies debuted ‘Hell on Heels’ this past weekend on the ‘ACM Girls Night Out: Superstar Women of Country’ special, and you can read about and watch their appearance right here. According to Lambert, the group has been “writing songs like crazy,” but there’s no word yet of when a full-length album will be released.
