Boys From The South
Label: Rca Records Label Nashville
Miranda Lambert always comes out with guns blazing. Here, that's exactly how she and her fellow Pistol Annies -- Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley -- roll. Backed by a slow beat and twangin' guitar, "Hell on Heels" is a delightfully sinister song that has the three sirens triumphing over their men. Elsewhere, the girls drink, smoke and take pills; go off the deep end ("Housewife's Prayer"); and lament marriage in various ways ("Trailer for Rent," "The Hunter's Wife"). And while the circumstances are less than ideal, there's plenty of cleverly written one-liners to lighten things up.
