Miranda Lambert Details
After a successful nine-week run on “Nashville Star” in 2003, Miranda Lambert signed with Epic Records and released her first single, “Me and Charlie Talking”, near the end of 2005. Co-written by her father and Heather Little, that hit song reached the top 40 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. Miranda wrote or co-wrote 11 of the 12 songs on her debut major label album, “Kerosene”, and all four of the singles from that album hit the top 40. The album reached platinum status by 2005, proving she was a powerhouse in her own right and on her way to country music superstardom. Miranda Lambert has been on fire ever since.
A talented singer, guitarist, and songwriter, Miranda Lambert has earned several awards, proving that it’s not just her loyal fans who love her music. In April 2017, Miranda won the ACM Award for Female Vocalist of the Year for the eighth consecutive year, making her the most awarded singer in that category. In November of 2015, she became the first woman to win the CMA award for Album of the Year twice, once again surpassing other well-known country artists. Miranda Lambert has been nominated for a total of twelve Grammys, winning two. Her song, “Tin Man”, was nominated for Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance for the 2018 Grammy Awards.
Miranda Lambert has released a total of 6 albums since signing with Epic Records after her appearance on “Nashville Star”. She released her latest album in 2016, “The Weight of These Wings”, which went platinum and won the ACM Album of the Year Award. “The Weight of These Wings” is considered to be one of the best country albums of 2016. Now, more than a decade after “Kerosene” went platinum, Miranda Lambert is taking her award-winning music on tour yet again with her “Livin’ Like Hippies” tour.
“Livin’ Like Hippies” Tour 2018
The “Livin’ Like Hippies” tour kicks off January 18, 2018 in Greenville, SC at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena. The tour is slated to end on March 24, 2018 in Winston-Salem, NC at the Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

Miranda Lambert Setlist
With so many hits to her name, there are sure to be several fan favorites performed on her "Livin’ Like Hippies" tour, but a few songs definitely stand out. “The House That Built Me” digs deep into the nostalgia so many feel about the home they grew up in. A sweet, tender ballad, the audience often can’t help but sing along with Miranda. “White Liar” is perhaps one of Miranda’s best-known songs, and another favorite that fans are sure to hear. The same can be said for “Kerosene” from her debut album. Up for two Grammys this year, the popular “Tin Man” will almost certainly make her setlist for the tour, as well as the title track from her latest album, “The Weight of These Wings”.
