NASHVILLE (May 12, 2020) Just over two months ago, and just before the pandemic took hold of the country, Nashville and other areas of Tennessee were rocked by numerous devastating, deadly tornadoes. And, just like everyone else who calls the Volunteer State home, Miranda Lambert knew that she had to do whatever possible to help with the recovery. “We knew people needed to come first, but MuttNation is here because we have to watch over the animals, too,” said the top ACM award-winning country superstar whose Foundation has been helping shelter pets since 2009.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – As Miranda Lambert wraps the initial U.S. leg of her Wildcard Tour, she is pausing to recognize the heroic first responders this tour has brought to her attention. Having been inspired by Kelly Ford of WNSH New York, who routinely honors first responders on her morning show, Lambert invited radio listeners to nominate local heroes in each tour market. Selected honorees in turn received a pair of show tickets as well as the opportunity to meet Lambert ahead of her performance. “It was an honor to meet some of the incredible first responders, the men and women across the country who have dedicated their lives to service and bravery to keep their communities safe,” shared Lambert. “Hearing each one of their unique stories was such an inspiration to me and my team.” Recently nominated in three categories for the upcoming Academy of Country Music Awards (Female Artist, Album and Music Event of the Year), Lambert has wowed fans and critics alike with the first leg of the Wildcard Tour. Billboard celebrated the tour’s Nashville stop for its “engaging set that spanned her massive catalog… and proved exactly why she’s one of the genre’s powerhouse acts,” while the Kansas City Star noted in Missouri that “Lambert still holds her status as queen of country music… [her] carefree nature and admirable expansive sound make her one of the most compelling country stars of the past 20 years” and the Dallas Observer praised her hometown show as “utterly transcendent.” Lambert next travels to Australia to headline the CMC Rocks Festival in Queensland in addition to her own shows in Sydney and Melbourne, before returning to the U.S. for the Tortuga Music Festival and the continuation of her Wildcard Tour in April.

And Gives a Heartfelt Thanks to Thousands of Volunteers NASHVILLE, TN (February 14, 2020) It’s Valentine’s Day and Country Music’s “Wildcard” superstar, Miranda Lambert, wanted to take the opportunity to thank the thousands of volunteers she challenged to “Pledge to Volunteer” at their local animal rescue. By volunteering, the shelter they helped was automatically registered to be in the running to receive one of ten $1,000 MuttNation Foundation grants. In addition, volunteers were entered for the grand prize of concert tickets and a meet-and-greet with Miranda at an upcoming performance.
Miranda Lambert is giving communities throughout her upcoming Wildcard Tour the chance to shine a spotlight on local first responders. Radio listeners can nominate local first responders to participating country stations (click here for full list). The selected honoree will receive two show tickets and meet & greets with Lambert.
Country music will continue to be both genre-bending and loyal to its “three chords and the truth” roots. We will likely continue to see successful cross-genre collaborations, as the country audience has continued to diversify. However, the longstanding traditions of the classic, fiddle-and-steel-laced sound mixed with autobiographical and often cinematic storytelling are here to stay. Pandora’s 2020 Country Artists to Watch list is a unique blend of artists representing both of these styles…and so much more.
