NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Two-time GRAMMY Award-winner and reigning ACM Female Vocalist of the Year Miranda Lambert returns to the road this fall on the Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour 2019 – and she’s bringing a heavyweight roster of female powerhouses along for the ride. The tour, which launches Friday, September 13 in Uncasville, Conn. and runs through Saturday, November 23 in Greensboro, N.C., will feature very special guests Maren Morris and Elle King as well as Pistol Annies, Tenille Townes, Ashley McBryde and Caylee Hammack on various dates (details below). “I’m so excited and honored to be on tour with some of my favorite artists, who each inspire me in a different way,” shared Lambert of the all-star tour roster. “Maren Morris is a fiery fellow Texas girl that isn’t afraid to take a risk and be who she is. Elle King is a brave, confident and unapologetic artist who is honest about her life and uses it for her art. My fellow Pistol Annies are not only some of my best friends and writing partners, but also make me want to be a better artist every time we take the stage together. Tenille, Ashley and Caylee are all women who have something to say and they do it their own way. They are the next generation of fearless female artists and I’m so thrilled to share a stage with them.” Citi is the official presale credit card of the Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour 2019.

Lambert has long been hailed for her live performances, earning multiple ACM and CMA nominations for Entertainer of the Year. Rolling Stone praised her balance of “star power with humanity” at last year’s Los Angeles stop, noting that “she moved as if an electric current ran through her veins, propelling her around the stage [as one of the] few who can pull off a balance of flinty fierceness and deep soul ache.” Pollstar spoke similarly of her most recent Indianapolis date, remarking that “her command of the stage and the momentum build of her songs suggest Lambert’s becoming a true heir apparent to the feisty side of Loretta Lynn.”
The most-awarded artist in ACM history, Lambert will take the stage this Sunday, April 7 to perform a medley of her hits as well as a special duet with George Strait on the CBS telecast, where she is a double nominee in the Female Artist of the Year and Music Event of the Year categories. She will also be performing at various fairs and festivals this summer in advance of the Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour 2019.
