Lambert announces female-centric Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars tour

Friday, April 5, 2019 – Miranda Lambert returns to the road this fall on the Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour 2019 with a slew of female arists supporting her.

The tour, which launches Sept. 13 in Uncasville, Conn. and runs through Nov. 23 in Greensboro, N.C., will feature very special guests Maren Morris and Elle King as well as Lambert's side project, Pistol Annies, Tenille Townes, Ashley McBryde and Caylee Hammack.

"I'm so excited and honored to be on tour with some of my favorite artists, who each inspire me in a different way," said Lambert of the all-star tour roster. "Maren Morris is a fiery fellow Texas girl that isn't afraid to take a risk and be who she is. Elle King is a brave, confident and unapologetic artist who is honest about her life and uses it for her art. My fellow Pistol Annies are not only some of my best friends and writing partners, but also make me want to be a better artist every time we take the stage together. Tenille, Ashley and Caylee are all women who have something to say, and they do it their own way. They are the next generation of fearless female artists and I'm so thrilled to share a stage with them."

Lambert will take the stage this Sunday, April 7 to perform a medley of her hits as well as a special duet with George Strait on the CBS telecast, where she is a double nominee in the Female Artist of the Year and Music Event of the Year categories.

CD reviews for Miranda Lambert

Platinum CD review - Platinum
Cynics might think that Miranda Lambert is presumptuous in entitling her fifth disc "Platinum" and, in effect, assuming she'll get her plaque for selling 1 million units. But Lambert says that isn't the case, but more a matter of style, looks and feel. Lambert also wrote and discovered a lot of excellent songs that fit her quite well in an album in which she exposes her inner self as she matures. That may never more apparent than in the country rocker Lambert wrote »»»
Revolution CD review - Revolution
Every once in a while an album comes along that restores your faith in mainstream country music. Miranda Lambert's "Revolution" is just such a recording. It's not revolutionary, as the title might suggest. Instead, this CD is chock full of topnotch songs that are both memorable and sincere and never sound slick or overproduced. (Come to think of it, such old school values as these may in fact be revolutionary around Nashville). Lambert vocalizes a bit like a little girl at »»»
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend CD review - Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
Even though it sounds like a cliche from the big book of country songwriting, the truth is that, when the timing's right, a loser can end up being the biggest winner of all. Today's object lesson comes from Miranda Lambert and her sophomore album, the follow-up to her 2005 near-platinum debut, "Kerosene." Imagine for a moment if the then-19-year-old had actually taken the crown in 2003's Nashville Star and then been forced into the studio within weeks to be primped and »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Jinks wins over fans, especially new ones – Cody Jinks asked the crowd a bit into his show how many had never seen him before. It seemed like Jinks has made a lot of musical inroads into the public's consciousness because roughly three quarters of the audience raised their hands to show that this was their first time. That probably made Jinks feel pretty darn good about how life has been... »»»
Concert Review: Fogerty lives up to his past – Woodstock 50 may never have happened, but that original monumental event was certainly in the air at John Fogerty's My 50 Year Trip Tour before, during and after. The before and after was in the choice of songs that came over the speakers including everything from Jefferson Airplane's "Don't You Want Somebody to Love" to The... »»»
