Miranda Lambert is Taking Her Music Back on the Road with “Highway Vagabond” Tour


On the heels of the announcement about her highly anticipated double album The Weight Of These Wings in stores on November 18, Miranda Lambert is planning a trek to perform these new songs for her fans on the upcoming Highway Vagabond Tour.

Her first single “Vice” is swiftly climbing the charts at radio and has her fans and critics swooning alike. “Lambert is one of the best songwriters in the game, and “Vice’s” gloomy heartbreak is masterfully done”, as reported by USA Today. “It marks a shift in her sound, the tune is laid bare against understated atmospherics and a howling electric guitar.   … It’s a gorgeous reminder that while Lambert may be sitting on country music’s throne, her feet remain on the ground” adds Entertainment Weekly.
