– Miranda Lambert will be the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum's 15th artist-in residence, performing two one-of-a-kind shows at the museum on Sept. 19 and 26.
"We're talking about someone who has been the CMA's top female vocalist a record seven times, selling millions of albums and scoring hit after hit while retaining absolute artistic conviction and credibility. She writes her heart and sings her truth, and her truth resonates," said museum CEO Kyle Young. "We are honored that she is this museum's 15th artist-in-residence, the latest in a line of greats that includes some of Miranda's own musical heroes, like Guy Clark, Tom T. Hall, Kris Kristofferson, and Buddy Miller."
"The history that the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum holds is so important," said Lambert. "It's truly an honor to be named artist-in-residence for the museum. I'm thankful for this place, where our music can continue to be cherished, and I'm thrilled to be among the esteemed artists who have been honored by this designation."
Both shows will begin at 8 p.m. with tickets on sale on Friday. Lambert's fan club members, Ran Fans, will have access to an exclusive pre-sale on Wed., July 11 at 11 a.m. eastern.
Established in 2003, the artist-in-residence series honors musicians who have contributed a significant body of work to American popular music. The artist-in-residence is invited to use the museum's performance venues to create unique musical experiences. Lambert joins a prestigious group of past honorees that includes Cowboy Jack Clement, Earl Scruggs, Jerry Douglas, Vince Gill, Connie Smith, Kenny Rogers, Ricky Skaggs, Alan Jackson, Rosanne Cash and 2017 artist-in-residence Jason Isbell.
