Nashville, Tenn. (February 10, 2010) – Platinum recording artist Miranda Lambert brings her “Roadside Bars And Pink Guitars” Tour to her fans this Spring. Gearing up on March 18th in Beckley, WV, the tour will make stops in at least 22 cities and more to be announced. This is Lambert’s first official headlining tour. She will be joined by David Nail, James Otto, Randy Houser and Wade Bowen among others.
In addition to her own headlining tour, Lambert will take part in the prestigious Lilith Fair Tour and joins an A-list lineup including Kings of Leon, Jay-Z, Dave Matthews Band and Norah Jones, performing at this year's Bonnaroo Music Festival in June.
"In the last 5 years, I have learned so much from all the amazing artists I’ve toured with,” said Lambert. “Now it's my turn to venture out and do more shows of my own. I’m happy that there are a lot of great new artists who are willing to come out and support my tour.”
Fans, critics and peers agree it's time for the award-winning Texas singer/songwriter to take center stage. Recent performances have garnered such praise as “one of modern country’s most formidable talents” from The Oklahoman and from the Dallas Morning News “She can command a stage as good as any of the genre big boys.”
Last week, Lambert, who's latest single "White Liar" from her album REVOLUTION recently hit #1, taped an episode of ABC’s Extreme Makeover Home Edition, which airs this spring and was a presenter at the Grammy Awards, where she was also nominated for Best Female Country Vocal Performance for her self-penned song “Dead Flowers." While in Los Angeles as part of Brad Paisley's "American Saturday Night" Tour, she will tape two upcoming shows for the Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson (air dates TBA.)
The three-time GRAMMY nominee received rare perfect reviews for REVOLUTION from countless publications including 4 stars from Rolling Stone and USA Today, an A from Entertainment Weekly and exuberant praise from SPIN, NY Times, Washington Post and more. Many claimed REVOLUTION the “Best Album of 2009” in any genre including NPR's "All Things Considered." Amongst the many accolades, the Nashville Scene Critics Poll voted Miranda Lambert’s REVOLUTION as the year's best album and her "White Liar" as the year's best single; they also named her Female Vocalist of the Year and runner-up Artist of the Year.
