Miranda Lambert coming to Kentucky for Certified Platinum Tour
This morning, country music star, Miranda Lambert, announced plans for her new tour to hit 2015. Miranda Lambert will launch her Certified Platinum Tour in January 2015. The nearly 30-city tour includes dates in Tennessee, Ohio, Washington, Oklahoma, Alabama, Kentucky, and Mississippi, among other stops. ACM New Artist of the Year winner Justin Moore will join Lambert for the tour, while RaeLynn, Sunny Sweeney, Ashley Monroe, and Danielle Bradbery will also open shows along the way.
With her latest tour, The Boston Globe said of her performance, “Lambert busted out of the gate like a woman possessed and didn’t take her foot off the pedal for 85 minutes, much to the delight of a packed amphitheater happy to hold on for the ride.” The Philadelphia Inquirer proclaimed “Miranda Lambert works the same thematic turf about growing up and growing older in rural America as her (almost entirely male) competitors atop the country charts. She just does it way better than they do.”
Justin Moore will join the tour who has 5 #1 singles including “Point At You,” “Lettin’ The Night Roll,” “Small Town USA,” “If Heaven Weren’t So Far Away,” and “Til My Last Day,” and several Top 10’s from his Gold certified albums.
Lexington, Kentucky has been announced as the second tour stop on the tour. Official dates and show times are forthcoming. Be sure to check out www.mirandalambert.com for details.
