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.
