Miranda Lambert‘s upcoming tour dates on Kenny Chesney’s “Spread The Love Tour” include some stops at a few of the biggest venues in North America, but the country music superstar will also be playing one of her own, very special, more intimate shows…a lot closer to home.
Lambert announced yesterday she will be playing a special acoustic “Roadside Bars and Pink Guitars: Unplugged” show in Nashville . The concert will also feature a few of her talented friends, Pistol Annies bandmate Ashley Monroe, Shane McAnally and Nicolle Galyon.
The concert is schedulted to take place at the City Winery in Nashville, an intimate space that features a 350-seat music venue, 150-seat restaurant and private event rooms. This show is a benefit for Lambert’s Women Creators Fund, a scholarship she established at Belmont University in 2015.
Proceeds from the concert will benefit Lambert’s Women Creators Fund, with seated tickets priced at $65 and special standing room only tickets priced at $35. The show went on sale at noon on Wednesday (January 6th), and according to the Tennessean, it sold out approximately 5 minutes after the tickets went on sale!
The ‘Miranda Lambert Women Creators Fund‘ will provide over $40K to a female attending Belmont University in Nashville who is majoring in songwriting, entertainment industry studies or music business. The first scholarship will affect the 2016-17 school year.
To encourage and empower women to achieve their goals is why I am supporting outstanding women who want to pursue their dreams in the music industry,” Lambert said in a press statement when she announced the scholarship in July of 2015.
This isn’t Lambert’s first appearance at the venue, when Monroe played a sold-out show there back in November, Lambert joined her onstage for a song. The reigning CMA Female Vocalist of the Year, also played a surprise show in January 2015 at Exit/In, and in July she performed at 3rd & Lindsley.
Lambert recently making headlines again when she confirmed that she is in fact dating singer, Anderson East, with a sweet post on her Instagram of them snuggling on the sofa, captioned with, “The snuggle is real.”
