OFFSTAGE: Pistol Annies: Girl Power and Then Some

Pistol Annies
(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and
out of the spotlight.)

People make such a fuss over girl power. But the Pistol
? They are making a fuss over girlfriend power. At least, that’s the message I get when I read between the lines
in the liner notes on their new album Annie Up. First, Miranda Lambert thanks
her bandmates Ashley Monroe and Angaleena
because, with them, she says, “I get to be 12 forever, play dress up and sing in a hair brush! And do it all on
a tour bus!” Monroe echoes that sentiment and even refers to the group as “sister wives” to Blake
. But it’s Presley’s gratitude that really sums up how much good girlfriends matter. “Thank you for letting me
sing, cuss, write, cry, talk about boys, drink, smoke, take my crazy meds, play guitar, laugh, bitch, exercise, play dress
up, get homesick, create, hide, say and do inappropriate things, scream, dance, fall, make a fool of myself and shine like
a diamond around you with wild abandon,” she says in the happiest run-on sentence I’ve ever read.
