Angaleena Presley will follow her acclaimed 2014 American Middle Class with Wrangled, her second full-length solo album, on April 21 via Mining Light Music/Thirty Tigers.
The album is co-produced by Angaleena and Oran Thornton, and features 12 tracks, all of which were co-written by Presley.
One of the album's many highlights is “Cheer Up Little Darling” written by Angaleena and her dear friend, Guy Clark.
The song — the last song completed by Guy before his death — features Shawn Camp playing Guy's No. 10 guitar, which was used to write the song with Guy, and Guy's mandola, which Guy had been learning to play during the last year of his life.
“Wrangled is an explicitly forthright journey through my experience in the business of Country Music. I tried to tackle uncomfortable realities like the discrimination against female artists at the height of Bro-Country, the high school mentality of Music Row and the pain that's just beneath the surface of the road to stardom. Covered in elbow grease and sacrifice, I set out to shed the skin of my ‘dream' Nashville by painting a musical picture of loss, surrender, resurrection, redemption, and connection with real people who make and support honest music.” - Angaleena Presley
