Pistol Annies Share New Song ‘Family Feud’ in Daily Music Stream
In a recent interview with Taste of Country, Pistol Annies member Ashley Monroe listed album track 'Family Feud' as the song that most stems from her personal life. "I lost my father and the day after I had family members come and grab all of his tools," she said. "I’ve seen firsthand how cruel a family can be over possessions."
Although the 'Hell on Heels' album won't be in stores until August 23, the band is letting fans stream a new track each day this week. Yesterday, 'Bad Example' was released at Entertainment Weekly, and today Us Magazine is giving fans a chance to hear the album's closing track. By listening to all five songs that will be streamed this week, fans can win an exclusive meet and greet with Monroe, Miranda Lambert and Angaleena Presley.
For many, the action in this song is all too real. "Fine china stacked by the kitchen sink / Aunt Tammy's in there cleaning all the diamond rings / Uncle Bobby's loading up the TV set / Only thing their grieving over is what they ain't gonna get / She's only been in the ground a day or two / I'm glad mama ain't around to watch this family feud."
Lambert's voice drives this song, but she doesn't carry the lead the entire time. Depending on one's circumstances, the song is either a hilarious or painful reminder of how petty family can be. "I'm watching it all go down in shame / Wish the whole house would go up in flames / Who gives a damn about a cedar chest / When we just laid her soul to rest."
Pistol Annies have been appearing during select Miranda Lambert tour dates nationwide.
