When Miranda Lambert sets her Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour in motion in the fall, she’ll be bringing along some of her favorite women in the music business.
“We didn’t set out to have an all-female tour,” she tells Pollstar. “But when we looked at this line-up, here’s a bunch of bada** girls rolling down the road, playing music, drinking beer, having fun and enjoying the fans.”
“Every single one of them knows who she is,” Miranda continues. “They’re all out making the music that comes from that.”
Pistol Annies will join her on all the dates, while Maren Morris, Elle King, Ashley McBryde, Tenille Townes and Caylee Hammack will join at different points on the trek.
Just like her tour mates, Miranda knows what the women in the audience are going through.
“I’ve struggled with weight ups and downs; I’ve put my life in my songs,” she explains. “And I’ve never counted on my hair, my make-up and my boobs to get me over. I’ve always used my guitar.”
“A guitar and a real stubborn head will get you a long, long way,” she quips.
But Miranda doesn’t want you to think she’s just making music for females.
“I look for the dads or the husbands, who came with their girls,” she says. “Because there are a lot of men out there who love the message, or they just want someone they love to have a really good time.”
“You’d be surprised, all the boys with their great big beers singing every word of ‘Hell On Heels,’” Miranda adds, referring to the Pistol Annies’ song.
The Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour kicks off September 13 in Uncasville, Connecticut.
