Miranda Lambert will celebrate first responders on her upcoming Wildcard Tour, which seems apropos since she married one in 2019: NYC police officer Brendan McLoughlin.
Radio listeners in markets that Miranda’s tour is visiting can nominate local first responders to participating country stations, including Cumulus stations in Nashville (WKDF/NASH 103.3), Dallas (KPLX 99.5 and KSCS 96.3), Boise (KIZN 92.3) and Fresno (KSKS 93.7). The selected honoree will receive two show tickets and meet Miranda.
“I was really inspired by [radio personality] Kelly Ford, who honors a first responder every Friday on her show, and last November I got to nominate my husband, Brendan,” says Miranda. “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. It’s been incredibly inspiring to hear stories of local heroes, and I’m honored to have them as our guests every night.”
The 27-date run kicks off on January 16 in Tupelo, Miss., making additional stops in Nashville, Denver, Boise, Vancouver, Montreal and more. Cody Johnson, Lanco, Randy Rogers Band and Parker McCollum will serve as support on select dates.
