Pistol Annies craft holiday album for the not-so-sentimenta­l


Country star Miranda Lambert readily admits that she doesn’t really like Christmas music at all.

The only thing that would get her in the spirit to do a holiday record was singing with her two best gal pals from the Pistol Annies, Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley.

“Hell of Holiday” is the album for the holiday survivors, the folks like Lambert who are a little more sarcastic than sentimenta­l, but still can find the meaning of the season through all the tinsel. The trio of singers bring both humor and harmony as they celebrate with hillbilly relatives, get caught up in the hustle and sing Jesus a “Happy Birthday” song.

“We are all sad song lovers, so there’s some moments on this record that have either some some dark humor or some sad song undertones,” said Lambert.

“Because it is a holiday record, it will live every year forever. And that makes me really happy,” said Lambert.
