Angaleena Presley Announces Solo Album Details

Angaleena Presley’s new album ‘American Middle Class’ will be released Tuesday, October 14 on Slate Creek Records in partnership with distributor Thirty Tigers. Presley — known to fans as “Holler Annie” from the Platinum selling trio The Pistol Annies (Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe) — is the sole writer of five of the album’s 12 tracks, and co-writer of the remaining seven, which she penned alongside a who’s who of Nashville’s best. Presley, a natural melodist, co-produced the album with husband, Jordan Powell.

Written in the tradition of Willie Nelson’s Red Headed Stranger, ‘American Middle Class’ is a true concept record.

“It’s like my autobiography – each of the songs is a chapter of my life. I’ve literally lived every minute of this record,” says the coal miner’s daughter hailing from Beauty, Kentucky. “My mama ain’t none too happy about me spreading my business around but I have to do it,” Presley says. “It’s the experience of my life from birth to now.”

Presley shines as a producer on this album, having thoughtfully selected an enviable cast of musicians and background vocalists to help bring her vision to life. Vocalists include Patty Loveless, Chris Stapleton, Emily Saliers (Indigo Girls) and even her father, Jimmy Presley, who opens the title track with a personal narrative.

Fans will get to experience Angaleena’s ‘American Middle Class’ on the road soon.

“Playing live is the ultimate connection for a songwriter,” she says, “you get to see firsthand how your songs affect someone and I love it.” Presley recently announced several Indigo Girls dates and will soon reveal fall tour plans.

Angaleena Presley will take her new music on the road when she joins friends The Indigo Girls on tour in August.

If there’s a pedigree for a modern country music star, then Angaleena Presley fits all of the criteria: a coal miner’s daughter; native of Beauty, Kentucky; a direct descendent of the original feuding McCoys; a one-time single mother; a graduate of both the school of hard knocks and college; a former cashier at both Wal-Mart and Winn-Dixie. Perhaps best of all the member of Platinum-selling Pistol Annies (with Miranda Lambert and Ashley Monroe) says she “doesn’t know how to not tell the truth.”
