Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town Announce Joint Bandwagon Tour
Miranda Lambert and Little Big Town are teaming up for a co-headlining tour this summer. Thirteen stops on the Bandwagon Tour were announced on Thursday morning (Jan. 11).
As of now the 2018 Bandwagon Tour focuses on the east coast and midwest, with stops in Indianapolis, Tampa and Pittsburgh after the kickoff on July 12 in Charlotte, N.C. The final stop is an Aug. 24 stop in Clarkston, Mich., just north of Detroit.
The group of artists have collaborated before, most notably on Lambert's song "Smokin' and Drinkin'" from her Platinum album. While not a commercial success — the song peaked just inside the Top 40 — the ballad was met with critical acclaim. A memorable performance at the 2014 CMA Awards highlighted the union. It's not clear if they'll share a stage at any point during their summer tour stops.
Lambert is 15 months removed from releasing her The Weight of These Wings album and has indicated that she's written plenty since the 2016 drop date. "Tin Man" is her current single. The song is up for a Grammy Award, as is "Better Man" from Little Big Town. The Jan. 28 telecast may be their next opportunity to collaborate, although nothing of that nature has been hinted at. As of now Little Big Town is country music's only Grammy performer. Their album The Breaker is also nominated in the Best Country Album category.
