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.
