Miranda Lambert will take the time to honor local first responders throughout her upcoming Wildcard Tour.
The superstar is asking fans in select cities to nominate first responders via their local radio stations. When the tour rolls through, one selected honoree in each city will receive two concert tickets and a pair of passes to meet Lambert at the show.
“I was really inspired by Kelly Ford, who honors a first responder every Friday on her show, and last November I got to nominate my husband, Brendan. I wanted to be able to spread that to every city we’re visiting on the Wildcard Tour, and say thank you to the brave men and women who keep those places safe,” the “Bluebird” singer shared. “It’s been incredibly inspiring to hear stories of local heroes, and I’m honored to have them as our guests every night.”
Lambert’s much-anticipated Wildcard Tour kicks off Thursday, January 16 in Tupelo, Miss. and runs through May 9. The tour will criss-cross the U.S. and Canada, with a total of 27 stops. Joining Lambert on the tour are Cody Johnson and LANCO, with Randy Rogers Band and Parker McCollum opening select shows.
