Pistol Annies Aim to Serve Up Hell of a Holiday Christmas Special

Country trio Pistol Annies will bring their special brand of sharp-talking sass to Christmastime this year, as they plan their first ever holiday special.

Dubbed the Pistol Annies Hell of a Holiday Special, the program will be hosted by country radio personality Blair Garner and can be viewed on the group’s Facebook page, starting December 15 at 8 p.m. ET. Featuring special performances from their new album and a sit-down interview with the trio, members Miranda Lambert, Angaleena Presley and Ashley Monroe also say it will serve as a fundraiser for the Music Health Alliance. 

“It’s gonna be a hell of a holiday…special! 📺 December 15th, we’re performing songs off the record, sharing some memories and chatting with @blairgarner and it’s all to benefit an organization dear to our hearts, @musichealthalliance ❤️,” the group writes on Instagram.

The Music Health Alliance helps music industry professionals find and afford health care solutions, and has ramped up efforts to fight against COVID-19 since early last year. In October Pistol Annies released their first Christmas album, also called Hell of a Holiday, and performed the single “Snow Globe” at this week’s CMA Country Christmas special as well.

Meanwhile, the trio has also released an official video for “Snow Globe,” capturing a live performance of the shimmering track filled with three-part harmony and big-band soul.

Hell of a Holiday features 10 original tracks written by the Pistol Annies, plus fresh takes on standards including “Sleigh Ride,” Merle Haggard’s “If We Make it Through December,” and “Auld Lang Syne.” The Pistol Annies Hell of a Holiday Special will stream on the group’s Facebook page December 15 at 8 p.m. ET.
