Miranda Lambert will be hitting the road with Elle King, Maren Morris, Ashley McBryde, Caylee Hammack and Tenille Townes along with the Pistol Annies
Miranda Lambert is walking the walk and talking the talk when it comes to generating female empowerment and presence in country music.
The country star, 35, has revamped her Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour for a new 2019 leg with Elle King, Maren Morris, Ashley McBryde, Caylee Hammack, and Tenille Townes along with the Pistol Annies, featuring Lambert with Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley.
Speaking to Pollstar about the all-girl lineup, Lambert revealed she “didn’t set to have an all-female tour” but is grateful for what each act brings individually.
“I’m inspired by all these girls, especially the young girls; they keep my fire going. You see it in their eyes, and it just gets me going,” she said.
“Everybody has their own swagger and their own style, so this is going to be a night of some really badass music.”
Lambert added, “When we looked at this line-up, here’s a bunch of badass girls rolling down the road, playing music, drinking beer, having fun and enjoying the fans. Every single one of them knows who she is; they’re all out making the music that comes from that.”

And Lambert is proving that women do want to hear other women’s music.
Explaining how she’s over the conversation about women not getting played on country radio, Lambert refuted the idea that “women don’t want to listen to women,” adding, “I don’t understand what that phrase means, or where it came from. It makes no sense. Only we can understand each other, understand the issues and stuff that happens to women because it is different.”
Though she’s collected many accolades and No. 1 hits, Lambert is reminded of her humble beginnings and the hardships that other female singer/songwriters can experience as country newcomers.
