Tickets Begin to Go on Sale April 12
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.”

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.

About Miranda Lambert:
Vanner Records/RCA Records Nashville singer/songwriter Miranda Lambert is the reigning ACM Female Vocalist of the Year, having been bestowed this honor for nine consecutive years. Her accolades include 2 GRAMMY Awards, 13 (CMA) Country Music Associations Awards and 32 (ACM) Academy of Country Music Awards as well as many other honors, including the prestigious Harmony Award from the Nashville Symphony.
The Texas native released her last record, a double album titled The Weight of These Wings in November 2016, that debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart. She touts six studio albums to her repertoire; Kerosene(2005), Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (2007), Revolution (2009), Four The Record (2011) and Platinum (2014), the latter earning Lambert a GRAMMY Award for Best Country Album, in addition to her previous GRAMMY win for Best Female Country Vocal Performance in 2010 for “The House That Built Me.” The first song released from The Weight Of These Wings, “Vice,” received multiple GRAMMY and ACM Award nominations. Lambert’s next single “Tin Man”, which she debuted at the 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards, won “Song of the Year” at the 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards (ACM).
Miranda toured extensively in 2018, starting with the Livin’ Like Hippies tour in January and then following it up with The Bandwagon summer tour with Little Big Town. She was also honored by the Country Music Hall of Fame as their “Artist In Residence” performing twice in September. As if that wasn’t enough, she wrapped the year with releasing another Pistol Annies album Interstate Gospel on November 2. She returns to the road this year on the Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour 2019.
About Maren Morris:
Maren Morris is one of the leading voices in country music today—armed with incredible vocal stylings that reflect her country, folk and pop influences, sheer talent, honest lyrics and a strong presence. Morris’ latest album GIRL, released in March 2019 via Columbia Nashville, shattered the record for the largest ever debut streaming week for a country album by a woman with 23.96 million streams. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and No. 4 on the Billboard 200. It also features history-making title track “GIRL” which had the highest debut on Billboard’s Country Streaming Songs chart by a female artist and the highest weekly streams by a female country artist ever. GIRL comes three years after Morris’ breakout, Gold-certified debut album Hero and explores how her life has changed since then—a skyrocketing career, falling in love, becoming engaged and then married—and the highs and lows in between. The singer, songwriter and performer is fresh off the heels of five GRAMMY nominations at this year’s awards including Record of the Year and Pop Duo/Group performance for her massively acclaimed hit “The Middle” with Zedd and Grey which also broke the record for most weeks atopBillboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, making Morris the first country artist to top that chart. Her GRAMMY nominations also included Country Solo Performance for her Elton John cover “Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters” and Country Duo/Group Performance and Country Song for her Vince Gill collaboration “Dear Hate.” Morris won a GRAMMY Award for Best Country Solo Performance at the 59th GRAMMY Awards, was named New Artist of the Year at the 50th Annual CMA Awards, Top Country Female Artist at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards and New Female Vocalist of the Year at the 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards. She was also the most-played female artist on country radio in 2017 and 2018. The 28 year-old from Arlington, Texas got her start playing in bars around her hometown and quickly made a name for herself with Hero and its Platinum-selling “My Church,” Gold-selling “80s Mercedes” and “I Could Use A Love Song.” Hero and its singles topped charts nationwide, set Country radio records and were some of the most critically-acclaimed works of 2016.
About Elle King:
Multi-Platinum and GRAMMY-nominated recording artist Elle King released her critically-acclaimed second album, Shake The Spirit in October 2018, featuring current single “Baby Outlaw.” Shake the Spirit is the follow up to her debut album Love Stuff which featured her breakthrough single “Ex’s & Oh’s,” and earned her two GRAMMY nominations and was certified double Platinum. The track hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Rock Songs Chart, and topped the AAA, Hot AC and Alternative Radio charts, leading King to become the second female artist in 18 years to reach No. 1 at the latter format. She was also featured on Dierks Bentley’s GRAMMY-nominated No. 1 Country Airplay hit “Different For Girls” (she performed it with Bentley at the CMA Awards and took home an award for “Musical Event of the Year”). King also performed for President Obama in honor of Mavis Staples at the 2016 Kennedy Center Honors.
Shake The Spirit lead single “Shame” became her fourth radio No. 1 single and led Elle to become the only act in history to have scored number 1 singles on the Adult Pop Songs, Adult Alternative Songs, Alternative Songs and Country Airplay charts. Rolling Stone wrote of her Austin City Limits live set: “Elle King is a little bit country, a little bit rock n’ roll, but ultimately, she’s punk as fuck.” Variety wrote of her Philadelphia Shake The Spirit tour date “…King churned the clotted cream of punkish country, raw R&B, crotchety rock and deep blues into rich, buttery musical drama with her band, The Brethren.. (she) belted, crooned, purred, sauntered and swaggered her way through a tautly rocking set…one thing became very clear: nearly every song that came before (the finale) was equally contagious, catty-cool and hit-worthy.”
Elle King will be appearing on ABC’s American Idol this Sunday, April 7, and performed on Good Morning America, Late Show With Stephen Colbert,Live with Kelly and Ryan, The Late Late Show with James Corden and Late Night With Seth Meyers, in support of her new album.

About Pistol Annies:
Combining the talents of acclaimed country forces of Miranda Lambert (Lone Star Annie), Ashley Monroe (Hippie Annie) and Angaleena Presley (Holler Annie), Pistol Annies deliver a high-spirited take on life the way real people live it. Songwriters/vocalists, the Annie collective allows the women the freedom to explore the genre (roots music) beyond their individual careers celebrating friendship, the rough patches and girl power. Having recorded with both the Chieftains and Jewel, their music has also been featured on The Hunger Games: Songs from District 12 and Beyond. They have released three albums, 2011’s gold-certified Hell on Heels, which produced the platinum single “Hell On Heels”, 2013’s Annie Up which highlights their single “Hush Hush” and the recently released Interstate Gospel (Nov 2018).
About Tenille Townes:
Canadian-born, Nashville-based Tenille Townes is “poised for a breakthrough” (Refinery29). On top of an ever-growing list of accolades that includes iHeartCountry’s next “On The Verge” artist, Amazon Music’s “2019 Artists To Watch,” The Bobby Bones Show’s “Class of 2019,” CMT’s “Next Women of Country,” CMT’s “Listen Up,” iHeart Radio’s “Artists To Watch in 2019” and the inaugural class of “Opry NextStage,” Townes is currently on Dierks Bentley’s extensive Burning Man Tour through August 2019. She’s garnered widespread attention including praise from Billboard, The Tennessean, Sounds Like Nashville, The Boot and NPR Music, who hails, “Like her role models Bruce Springsteen and Lori McKenna, Townes brings passion and empathy to songs that capture the complexities of the heartland. With her distinctive, raspy voice and hard-driving guitar style, Townes has the heart of a rocker. She’s part of a generation of young country artists refreshing the genre by pushing its boundaries.” Townes’ debut single, “Somebody’s Daughter,” recently reached No. 1 on both Mediabase and Nielsen BDS Country Airplay in Canada and is currently top 30 and rising in the U.S. Her highly-anticipated forthcoming full-length debut album, produced by Jay Joyce, will be released in 2019 on Columbia Nashville. Listen to Townes discuss the album and perform several songs off of it during a recent NPR/WXPN “World Cafe Nashville” session HERE.
About Ashley McBryde:
Lauded by The New York Times as “an alluringly flexible singer, fluent in classic country, blues and Southern rock, with a voice that moves easily from tender to tough,” Ashley McBryde caught the attention of some of Nashville’s most raucous entertainers, landing her dates opening for Eric Church, Chris Stapleton, Miranda Lambert, Luke Combs and most recently Little Big Town and George Strait. The Washington Post raves, “McBryde’s blue-collar storytelling and straightforward singing set her apart,” including a set during her debut on the Grand Ole Opry stage, notably sharing “Girl Goin’ Nowhere,” the seminal title track from her March 30, 2018 Jay Joyce-produced LP for Atlantic Records/Warner Nashville. The GRAMMY, ACM and Emmy-nominated powerhouse has received praise for Girl Going Nowhere, earning the Arkansas native critical acclaim from The New York Times, The Washington Post, Rolling Stone, Variety and more.For tour dates and more information, visit AshleyMcBryde.com or follow her on Facebook at www.facebook.com/AshleyMcBryde, Instagram @ashleymcbryde and Twitter at @AshleyMcBryde.
About Caylee Hammack:
Caylee Hammack constantly felt like a self-described “hippie in a hillbilly town.” “I used to pray every night as a kid, ‘God, just please make me different. Don’t make me like everyone else,’” she remembers. Hammack is indeed refreshingly different, proving so with her “high-spirited, rollicking” (Variety) debut single “Family Tree.” Recently highlighted as one of 2019’s artists to watch by outlets such as The Bobby Bones Show and HITS Magazine and with over two million streams just weeks after introducing the song to fans, Hammack is quickly becoming one of Nashville’s most buzz-worthy new artists among fans, radio and critics who have already applauded her as “a dynamic singer and equally memorable songwriter, Hammack’s soulful vocals and descriptive lyrics shine on her debut single” (Billboard). And at only 24, she has already packed a full life into just a few years, using fake IDs to get gigs around South Georgia, turning down a college scholarship for a love that burned out just a few months later, sleeping in her car when she arrived in Nashville and then losing her home in an electrical fire. Her self-penned and self-produced songs tug on her own life story – bad decisions, secret affairs, broken hearts, a quirky family lineage – as she invariably turns the lemons of her daring life into sonic lemonade.
