So, did you hear that the Pistol Annie's very own Holler Annie, aka Angaleena Presley, got married last week? I'm sure you did, but if you didn't she got married to Miranda Lambert's tour manager, Jordan Powell, in Jackson Hole, Wyoming on May 22.
Miranda posted to the group's Twitter the above romantic photo along with: Holler got hitched, y'all! Congrats Angaleena we love you!
Awww, congrats to Angaleena.
Well, before Ms. Holler became Mrs. Holler, she gave an interview to Nashville Scene's Nashville Cream section, touching on everything from how broke she was when the Pistol Annie's gig came along:
Personally, my story, I was going through a divorce, I was broke. I did not know how I was gonna feed my baby. I was right in the thick of it. I bought a house when I got pregnant, and it was right at the end of the ridiculous housing market. So the market crashed, and then here I am stuck with this house that’s worth way less than what we paid for it. You know, I was just panicked. So there’s a song on our record “Housewife’s Prayer.” That was me sitting on the couch, thinking about burning my house down. I was literally trying to figure out, “OK, how can I do this and not have the insurance people know it?” It’s just desperate times right now. That was just my take on it. And there’s so many other people who are going through that same thing. I’m just glad that they got it and they understood that I’m just trying to make it just like anybody else. I have the platform to sing about it, and I’m glad to do it.
to how she hopes country music fans don't turn on the Pistol Annies like they did on The Dixie Chicks:
We love the Dixie Chicks. We love their music, and we’re obviously inspired by them. But, you know, I think we’re just gonna push on through and keep being honest, [laughs] and hopefully there won’t be any fallout like there was with them. It’s sad what happened to them. I don’t know. It’s a weird thing in country music. We’re just gonna do what we do, and just hope that people can attach to it or relate to it.
It's a great read so be sure to check out the whole interview here.
