Songfacts®:

  • Pistol Annies are an all-female trio who formed after singer-songwriters and friends Miranda Lambert and Ashley Monroe got together for a song writing session. As they shared stories, Ashley decided Miranda needed to meet her friend and fellow songwriter Angaleena Presley. Following a midnight phone call between the three ladies, the group was born.
  • Ashley and Miranda wrote this song about a shotgun wedding the night they called Angaleena to invite her to make up the threesome. Monroe recalled to CMT News: "We were at Miranda's house in Oklahoma. Miranda walked in the living room and said, 'Beige!' I said, 'What's beige?' She said, 'The song is about beige because she's wearing beige down the aisle. I'm going to go make a drink. Have the first line done by the time I get back.' [laughs]"
