Miranda Lambert Announces Intimate Benefit Show, Sells It Out Instantly
Miranda Lambert's upcoming tour dates include stops at some of the biggest venues in North America, but the country superstar will also play one very special, more intimate show that's a lot closer to home.
Lambert has announced a special acoustic show in Nashville that's being billed as Roadside Bars and Pink Guitars: Unplugged. The performance features Lambert and her Pistol Annies bandmate Ashley Monroe, as well as hit Nashville songwriters Shane McAnally and Nicolle Galyon, who have both co-written hits for Lambert.
The concert is slated 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. According to Nashville's Tennessean newspaper, 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 (Jan. 6), and according to the Tennessean, it sold out in 7 minutes flat.
Established in 2015, the Miranda Lambert Women Creators Fund will provide over $40,000 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.
Lambert made headlines recently when she confirmed that she's dating singer Anderson East with a sweet post to Instagram that showed them snuggling on the sofa, with the adorable caption, "The snuggle is real." It's her first relationship since she and Blake Shelton shocked fans by abruptly announcing their divorce in July.
