14. Angaleena Presley, 'Wrangled'

The Pistol Annies cowgirl brings all her sardonic country realness, teaming up with guiding spirits like Wanda Jackson and Guy Clark (as well as her fellow Annies, Ashley Monroe and Miranda Lambert), yet belting wise-ass outlaw tunes that sound like nobody but her.
