– Miranda Lambert led more than 1,000 country fans, along with their canine companions, through downtown Nashville during the first-ever MuttNation March Thursday to kick-off CMA Music Festival.
The march began at Nissan Stadium, continuing across the Pedestrian Bridge and concluded at Chevrolet Walk of Fame Park where Lambert was joined onstage by Storme Warren, host of SiriusXM's "The Highway," and several adoptable dogs to discuss MuttNation Foundation's mission and encourage CMA Fest attendees to visit the MuttNation mobile adoption unit inside XFINITY Fan Fair X. More than 20 dogs have been adopted since the first day of the adoption drive.
