VIDEO: Pistol Annies Alert — Surprise Performance in Kentucky!

“Surprise, Kentucky!”

That’s what Miranda Lambert told the crowd last night in Lexington, Kentucky when she brought the Pistol Annies out on stage with her.   The crowd went crazy as Lambert. Angaleena Presley and Ashley Monroe approached their microphones.  After soaking it all in for a moment, the trio launched into their hit song “Hell On Heels.”  (See the upper-deck fan video below.)

The Annies clearly enjoyed being back in the spotlight.  Ashley Monroe (aka Hippie Annie) posted their thanks on the group’s Facebook page:

Thank you Lexington for such an AMAZING CROWD last night.. wow… you literally blew us away! See ya on down the road! – Hippie Annie

The performance marked the first Pistol Annies concert sighting since December when the trio played a trio of sold-out headlining shows.  Their appearance not only gave the crowd some added excitement, it also probably gave Lambert a boost.  The show at Rupp Arena was Lambert’s ninth in a span of only 11 days.  That long run of her “On Fire Tour” covered more than 4,000 miles.

Lambert will be off for the next few weeks before playing at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo at Reliant Stadium on March 13.  She’ll then resume the “On Fire Tour,” with special guests Chris Young and Jerrod Niemann, in Salt Lake City, UT on March 16.  Will the Pistol Annies be there with her?  Stay tuned!

And here’s a second video. This one, taken in the pit, is much better, even if does end before the end of the song!
