Indie Country: Angaleena Presley Pain Pills Music Video – Country Fancast

Watch rising country singer Angaleena Presley’s powerful music video for “Pain Pills” . . .

Angaleena Presley released Pain Pills on her solo debut album American Middle Class.  Angaleena gained attention as a member of the Pistol Annies trio with Miranda Lambert.  Pain Pills is about the prescription pain pill abuses and addictions occurring across rural america.   Presley is the daughter of a coal miner and was raised in the small town of Beauty, Kentucky.

In an interview about the song, Angaleena stated, “Addiction has really changed the face of my personal life and a lot of things in my family. That song just haunts me,  If there’s anything I would get up on a soapbox for, it’s prescription medication. I just think it’s a travesty how careless doctors are with that stuff. It still happens. You don’t hand a 16-year-old a bottle of heroin and say, ‘Here you go. Just quit taking these after 12.’ Let’s start talking about it, let’s get some resources; let’s get some help.”
