Miranda Lambert takes "Four the Record" on the road
Miranda Lambert, Billboard's "Coolest Girl in Country," will embark on yet another tour just after the New Year, this one entitled "On Fire" in support of her brand-new effort, "Four the Record."
The country songstress first has plans for a trio of West Coast club shows that begin Dec. 3 in Las Vegas and spread to California for stops in West Hollywood (12/7) and Bakersfield (12/8). After the holiday season, Lambert will begin her "On Fire" tour with a Jan. 12 concert in Rockford, IL. So far, the trek moves through 15 major markets, wrapping up Feb. 23 in Macon, GA. An April 28 appearance at Indio, CA's Stagecoach Festival is also on the books.
Tickets for the 2012 dates go on sale Nov. 4 via Lambert's website.
"Four the Record," Lambert's fourth studio effort, hits shelves today (11/1) via RCA Nashville. The album's lead single, "Baggage Claim," debuted at No. 33 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart, making it the highest debuting single of her career.
The set, which was co-produced by Frank Liddell and Mike Wrucke, includes "Better in the Long Run," a duet with Lambert's husband, Blake Shelton. "Four the Record" follows her 2009 release, "Revolution," which topped Billboard's Top Country Albums chart and won Album of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards and the Country Music Association Awards.
Lambert is currently in the running for two People's Choice Awards: Favorite Country Artist and Favorite Female Artist. Voting is now closed for the nominees, and the winner will be announced Jan. 12 during the broadcast ceremony.
