Miranda Lambert's “Roadside Bars and Pink Guitars Tour” is back and better than ever! The Country superstar is gearing up to hit the road again in 2019, and she’s bringing some special friends along for the ride.
The 26-date trek kicks off September 13 with a pair of back-to-back shows in Uncasville, CT before setting out to hit a slew of cities including Baltimore, New Orleans, Wichita, and Jacksonville. A final performance in Greensboro, NC will bring the curtain down on November 23.
Lambert will be joined by a killer lineup of supporting acts this time around, featuring her trio Pistol Annies (with Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley) on all dates along with other supporting artists including Elle King, Maren Morris, Ashley McBryde, Caylee Hammack, and Tenille Townes on select dates.
The “Heart Like Mine” singer first used the “Roadside” moniker nearly a decade ago following the release of her third studio album Revolution (2009). It made its first comeback four years later in 2015, during which the Annies hit the stage for a surprise appearance after going on hiatus.
“Roadside Bars and Pink Guitars Tour is back,” the singer shared in a post to social media. “I’m so excited and honored to be on a tour with some of my favorite artists who each inspire me in a different way.”
Lambert has quite a busy year ahead of her before hitting the road in September. The country crooner is scheduled to play several festivals and fairs as well as perform at the 54th annual ACM Awards this coming Sunday, where she’s nominated for two awards, including Female Artist of the Year – a category she’s won every year since 2009.
Who Is Miranda Lambert?
Grammy-winning Country singer and songwriter Miranda Lambert first stepped into the spotlight in 2003, auditioning as a young and eager contestant on the talent competition show Nashville Star. Despite finishing in third place, the singer showed promise, capturing the attention of music execs with her powerhouse vocals and demanding stage presence. Her debut album Kerosene arrived the following summer, smashing any notion that she was anything but a runner-up. The album skyrocketed to the top of the charts, putting Lambert on the map as a commercial success.
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend followed in 2007, proving she wasn't just a pretty voice, but a true songwriter as well. The album launched Lambert to superstardom on the strength of massive hit singles like “Famous in a Small Town,” “More Like Her,” and “Gunpowder & Lead,” the latter of which became her first Top10 hit on the country chart in 2008. Her third album, Revolution, arrived in 2009, spawning two number one hit singles – “The House That Built Me” and “Heart Like Mine.”
Lambert has continued to dominate the country charts with subsequent releases including Four the Record (2011), Platinum (2014), and her most recent release, The Weight of These Wings (2016), which earned a platinum certification by the RIAA. Lambert has earned 16 Grammy nominations, winning two including one for Best Country Album for Platinum in 2014. She currently holds the record for most wins of the ACM Award for Female Vocalist of the Year, surpassing Reba McEntire in 2017, and in 2015 became the first woman to win the CMA for Album of the Year twice.
