The “Crystal Light Presents Platinum Tour” will kick off on July 10 in Fort Loramie, OH. Miranda Lambert says that to her “platinum” is a lifestyle.

It's the color of my hair, my wedding ring, my airstream trailer, so it's just a natural fit for the name of my new album and it’s why we decided to name the tour Platinum too.

Miranda Lambert’s fifth studio album, “Platinum”, is due to land in stores on June 3. The first single from the record, “Automatic”, has already struck a chord with fans. In the midst of our excessive social media and instant-results culture, the song’s look back to simpler times “before everything became automatic” is a refreshing reminder that we don’t have to be technology-driven to find joy.

“Automatic” has soared straight into the top 10 on Billboard’s Country Airplay and Hot Country Songs charts, getting Miranda Lambert’s latest album off to a blazing start. Anticipation for the album is only expected to grow in the weeks to come as Miranda Lambert plans to debut her duet with Carrie Underwood "Something Bad", which is featured on the album, on the Billboard Music Awards on May 18. That performance will undoubtedly have fans seeking out the duet as well as the album the minute it hits stores.

Though the “Platinum Tour” launches in July, Miranda Lambert’s talented opening acts won’t join her on the road until August 8. Thomas Rhett and Justin Moore will round out the show, which is expected to be both an exciting audio and visual experience as Miranda Lambert has completely redesigned her stage for the platinum theme.
