The tune would ultimately become the title track to their debut album, and the three ladies were the only writers on the entire album (aside from Miranda’s ex-husband Blake Shelton on “Family Feud”).
Since this day, they’ve released a total of four studio albums (including a Christmas album), and for my money, are probably still the most underrated band in all of country music.
Their songwriting is exceptionally clever and witty, and as a trio, no topic or statement is ever too obscure or taboo, as is evidenced on some of my favorite songs like “Trailer for Rent” and “Sugar Daddy.”
Miranda introduced her band for the first time this night, saying:
“I do have a surprise. Since it’s girls night out, I gotta new band called Pistol Annies so I wanna bring out the members.
This is our very first debut ever, so please welcome to the stage my good girlfriends, Angaleena Presley and Ashley Monroe.”
I mean, the opening verse of the song pretty much says everything you need to know:
“I’m hell on heels Say what you will I done made the devil a deal He made me pretty He made me smart And I’m gonna to break me a million hearts I’m hell on heels, baby, I’m comin’ for you”
It’s hard to believe there can even be so much talent in one band…
