Proceeds from Miranda Lambert‘s gig at Nashville’s 3rd and Lindsley will go toward the Miranda Lambert Women Creators Fund, a scholarship for women pursuing degrees at Belmont University’s Mike Curb College of Entertainment and Music Business. According to Belmont, more than $40,000 will go toward helping women majoring in music business, songwriting or entertainment industry studies over the next year.
“I am so excited to establish this scholarship fund at Belmont University’s Mike Curb College of Entertainment and Music Business,” Lambert said in a statement from the university. “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.”
Miranda has always been a major supporter of strong women in the industry that’s always been predominantly overrun with men.
“Throughout her career Miranda Lambert has been a faithful and loyal supporter of women songwriters and artists, and her music has served to inspire and to empower,” Doug Howard, dean of the Curb College, said in the statement. “And now, with the creation of her scholarship fund, Miranda will directly impact the education and opportunities of young women creators as they prepare for a career in the music industry.”
