Columbia/Nashville recording artist Miranda Lambert will kick off her “Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars” tour in Beckley on March 18th with 22 dates, and more to be announced, across the US.
Special guests David Nail, James Otto and others will be joining her on her first headlining tour.
Lambert first gained fame as a finalist on the 2003 season of Nashville Star, where she finished in third place and received a recording contract. Her first album, “Kerosene”, was certified platinum in the US and produced four Top 40 hits. Her second album, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”, was released in 2007 and produced more hits, including her first Top 10 country hit “Gunpowder & Lead”.
Her third album, “Revolution”, was released in 2009 and in February 2010 the single “White Liar” became her highest charting single, reaching #2 on the US Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. Lambert is only the third female country single with three records that debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Country Albums chart.
