, the critically-acclaimed trio of Angaleena Presley
, Miranda Lambert
and Ashley Monroe
, will release their sophomore album, Annie Up
, on May 7. It's the follow-up to the No. 1 album, Hell on Heels
, which they unleashed in August 2011.
"We laid it on the line with Hell on Heels
and we wanted to bring it again on this album," says Miranda, whose nickname in the trio is Lone Star Annie. "We put all our musical chips on the table, so we thought Annie Up
was a good title," adds Ashley (Hippie Annie). "We never tried to sit down and write a song," notes Angaleena (Holler Annie). "When we're together, we're always just writing."
