Friday, October 12, 2018

The new disc drops Nov. 2 on RCA Records Nashville.
Penned by the trio, "Stop Drop and Roll One" came after a good songwriting session. "We'd just finished a song out at the farm, and Miranda said, 'Girls, we're on fire I think, and then she said, 'So stop, drop and roll one,'" said Monroe.
The title track previously released "Best Years of My Life," "Got My Name Changed Back" and the title track.
Pistol Annies will play Nashville's Ryman Auditorium on Oct. 25 and New York's The Town Hall on Nov. 2, both of which sold out. The trio will close out the their album release shows at The Novo in Los Angeles on Nov. 7.
Pistol Annies previously released "Hell on Heels" in 2011 and "Annie Up" in 2013.
