Hear the Pistol Annies Celebrate Independence on 'Got My Name Changed Back'

The Pistol Annies are officially back. On the same day the trio announced their much anticipated new album Interstate Gospel (out on Nov. 2), they released their rollicking ode to divorce, "Got My Name Changed Back."

The Pistol Annies, made up of Miranda Lambert, Angaleena Presley and Ashley Monroe, have said that the album will focus on the truths of womanhood.

"The best way to describe this record is that it sounds like 3 women came unleashed and told a bunch of truth," the trio said on Twitter. "We didn't hold back and we're proud of it."

The Pistol Annies definitely didn't hold back on "Got My Name Changed Back," a tune that recalls the group's trademark wit and tongue-in-cheek humor previously heard on songs like "Hell on Heels."

"I done let a man get the best of me, spent an afternoon at the DMV," the trio sings. "Now who I was ain't who I'll be. I got my name changed back."

In addition to "Got My Name Changed Back," the trio also shared the album's freewheeling title track and the gorgeous and wistful "Best Years of My Life."

Presley released her album Wrangled in 2016. Monroe released her record Sparrow earlier this year.

Lambert recently wrapped up two nights as the Country Music Hall of Fame's Artist in Residence. On her Sept. 26 show, she was joined by her bandmates Presley and Monroe.

'Got My Name Changed Back' Lyrics:

It takes a judge to get married, takes a judge to get divorced
Well the last two years I spent a lot of time in court
I got my name changed back (yeah yeah)
I got my name changed back (yeah yeah)
Well I wanted something new then I wanted what I had
I got my name changed back (yeah yeah)

Well I got me an ex that I adored
But he got along good with a couple road whores
I got my name changed back (yeah yeah)
I got my name changed back (yeah yeah)
I don't wanna be a Mrs. on paper no more
I got my name changed back (yeah yeah)

I done let a man get the best of me
Spent an afternoon at the DMV
I got my name changed back (yeah yeah)
Now who I was ain't who I'll be
I got my name changed back (yeah yeah)
I got my name changed back (yeah yeah)

Well how to win when you play the fool
That's somethin' they don't teach in school
I played to win, lookin' back it's funny
I broke his heart and I took his money
I got my name changed back (yeah yeah)
I got my name changed back (yeah yeah)
I don't wanna be a Mrs. on paper no more
I got my name changed back (yeah yeah)

I got my name changed back
I got my name changed back
I got my name changed back
I got my name changed back
I got my name changed back
