Angaleena Presley Signs Songwriting Deal With EMI


It’s been a whirlwind of a last few weeks for Pistol Annies member Angaleena Presley. Officially a newlywed, the singer-songwriter has just signed a worldwide publishing deal with EMI Music Publishing. All future songs written by the Kentucky native will now be represented world-wide by EMI Music Publishing and Ten Ten Music. “Holler Annie” co-wrote the group’s debut album “Hell on Heels” and Miranda Lambert‘s current single “Fastest Girl In Town.” Angaleena is currently working on her own solo work as well as the sophomore album of the Annies which will be recorded later this year.

EMI Music is pretty ecstatic about adding Angaleena to its roster. Ben Vaughn of EMI Music Publishing Nashville said:

“You just have to listen to Angaleena’s lyrics to hear that she is a classic modern day songwriter whose music connects to anyone that loves authentic music. Everyone at EMI would like to welcome Angaleena and our new partner Ten Ten Music, and we look forward to the bright future of this talented writer and artist.”

In case you’re wondering the Annies met, Ten Ten Music co-president Jewel Coburn shares a little on Angaleena and Ashley Monroe‘s past:

“When Barry  and I first met Angaleena we both went ‘wow!’ Several years down the road we helped set her up with Ashley Monroe as writing partners and Ashley introduced Angaleena to Miranda. It was a perfect match! It’s been magical seeing Angaleena grow as a writer and performer, we have believed in her right from start and we continue to support her on this incredible journey.”

It’s been a long road for Angaleena herself, who shares:

“The road from my front porch in Kentucky to Music Row has been long and hard but well worth traveling. I want to thank everyone at EMI and Ten Ten Music for helping make my little songs reach front porch dreamers all over the world.”

Angaleena is currently out with the Pistol Annies on select dates of Miranda Lambert’s “ON FIRE” tour. She’ll be part of the Pistol Annies own tour later this year.

Angaleena Presley Wedding Details!


We had the chance to speak with Pistol Annies member Angaleena Presley back in November all about the Annies and her wedding to Miranda Lambert tour manager, Jordan Powell. The two were married Tuesday in a private ceremony in Jacksonhole, WY. While we don’t know the details for sure, Angaleena shared a little bit on what she was expecting with us here at Keepin’ it Country:

“We’re gonna elope. We are, you know, it’s my second marriage and it’s his second marriage and we had weddings the first time and we’re over it. We’re just going to wake up one morning and go to the mountains and get married. We don’t know when and we don’t know where, but we’re just going to wake up one morning and do it one day.”

We wish the happy couple all the best in their new lives together. Read the rest of our interview with Angaleena here.

We just got off the phone with the lovely, and talented, Angaleena Presley of the Pistol Annies. The “Holler Annie” called us on her way to a meeting in Nashville, and answered some of their fans biggest questions: including what was the secret recording with T Bone, what sound track the girls are hoping to get on, and if we’ll see a Pistol Annies tour next year. We also discussed eloping and second marriages, Elvis, and if there’s a chance for a second single from “Hell On Heels.”

CMT’s Next Women of Country Adds Five Artists

Next Women of Country

We can’t say enough about the fierce females who are a huge part of today’s country music. CMT echoes our sentiment, as it gives nods to five upcoming country music starlets who are on their way to striking gold (or platinum) in the genre we all know and love.

This year’s “Next Women of Country” are: Lindsay Ell, Lucy Hale, Nikki Lane, Angaleena Presley, and Natalie Stovall & the Drive. CMT chose these particular ladies for their voices, but also for their music in general. CMT coins each of these talented artists as the types of “women [who] dig deep and find the stories and the lyrics that make listeners stop and think.”

You can find out more about each of these artists by visiting, or by checking out the hashtag #NextWomen on Twitter.

Pistol Annies cancelling shows


Country music all-girls trio Pistol Annies have cancelled all upcoming shows due to “unforeseen circumstances.” The group, which features Angaleena Presley “Holler Annie,” Ashley Monroe “Hippie Annie,” and Miranda Lambert “Lone Star Annie,” had their promoter send a one-sentence e-mail to the venues.

The e-mail said:

“Due to unforeseen circumstances, Pistol Annies are unable to appear on any dates in June but Miranda Lambert will perform instead.”

Miranda will perform solo instead at all Annies scheduled dates in June. The trio have been busy promoting the debut single “Hush Hush” from their sophomore album “Annie Up.” No other information is available at this time as to why all the dates have been cancelled.  There are NO dates listed on the Pistol Annies website at this time, but fans still wanting to catch Miranda Lambert in their spot can check out Miranda’s tour page to see when she’ll be playing all month long. The dates include sold-out Annies dates.

Ashley Monroe has released her own solo work this year on Warner Music Nashville. “Like A Rose” is her return to a major recording label, and she’ll be hitting the road as a solo artist opening up for Hunter Hayes.

What do you think is going on, country fans? Are you disappointed to see just Miranda at one of the Pistol Annies dates you had tickets to?
