Miranda Lambert and the Pistol Annies dressed up as the Sanderson sisters from Hocus Pocus for Halloween? That is like every country music fan’s dream come true.

We have got to assume that everyone out there reading this has seen the 1993 live-action film Hocus Pocus. After all, it’s one of the most beloved Halloween movies of all time. It’s without a doubt one of the must-watch movies during the month of October. We can thank all of the millenials out there for that. They grew up watching the movie and now year after year they crave that nostalgia.

The movie, of course, follows three sisters who are witches. They are brought back from the dead thanks to a gullible teen and set out on a path to suck the lives out of the children of Salem, Massachusetts. They want to stay young and beautiful forever. It seems like perhaps Miranda Lambert and the Pistol Annies have that same idea.

On Sunday, the official Twitter account for the Pistol Annies posted a picture of the Hocus Pocus cover. But it didn’t have Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker’s faces like usual. Instead, the photo hilariously has the faces of Lambert and the other Pistol Annies’ members photoshopped in. Take a look down below:

“Happy Halloween from the Pistol Sanderson Sisters!!! 👻”

And just like us, country music fans out there were loving the Hocus Pocus tweet from the Pistol Annies. It’s like taking two perfect things and putting them together. There’s really no downside.

“That’s amazing, and I’ll gladly accept a Halloween album next! 👻🎃” one fan replied.

“Omg I love this!!!” said another person.

“Happy Halloween my sister friends! 🎃👻” a fellow user wrote.

Miranda Lambert and the Pistol Annies Double as the Sanderson Sisters

Okay, so we all love the Pistol Annies and we all love the Sanderson Sisters from Hocus Pocus. But what makes them all so special? Well, for starters, each of the members of the Pistol Annies and the Sanderson sisters is pretty darn amazing.

Like we mentioned up above, Midler, Najimy, and Parker are as iconic as they come. They perfectly portrayed the Sanderson sisters. If you are a Hocus Focus fan, then you know that the three actresses have great chemistry together on screen. So much so that you can immediately believe they’ve been sisters for 300 years. Not only that, but each of the sisters has a completely distinct and hilarious personality. That in itself helps make every scene in the movie that much more fun.

Can you see that the members of the Pistol Annies have a lot of those same qualities? If anyone is qualified to replace the Sanderson sisters in the Hocus Pocus cover, there’s an argument to be made that Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe, and Angaleena Presley are right near the top.
