June 13th: On This Day

On this day in 2011, Miranda Lambert and her girl-project the Pistol Annies signed their first recording contract with RCA records.

Ashley Monroe, Angaleena Presley, and Lambert would debut their group on the National Stage earlier in the year, on April 4th, on the CBS special Academy of Country Music’s Girl’s Night Out: Superstar Women of Country.

The trio would release their debut album, Hell on Heels, in August of the same year. Pistol Annies debuted at Number 1 on the Billboard Top Country Album chart and with little to no promotion, the group also landed at #5 on the Billboard 200 Album chart.


November 10th: On This Day

On this day in 2014, Warner Bros. released Blake Shelton’s collaboration with Ashley Monroe, “Lonely Tonight,” to radio. The song was released as the second single from Shelton’s eighth studio album, Bringing Back the Sunshine.

“Lonely Tonight” reached #1 on the charts and was Shelton’s 14th consecutive number one. The song would later be Certified Gold by the RIAA in 2015.
