Country music artist Miranda Lambert has been named the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s 15th artist-in-residence! The Texan will be performing two one of-a-kind shows in the museum’s CMA Theater on Wednesday, Sept. 19 and Wednesday, Sept. 26. Both shows will begin at 8:00 p.m. and have already sold out.
Lambert is among the most popular and most recognized singer-songwriters of country music’s modern era. She is the most awarded artist in the history of the Los Angeles-based Academy of Country Music, and the most awarded female artist in Country Music Association history. She is also a member of acclaimed group Pistol Annies with fellow country stars Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley.
“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,” museum CEO Kyle Young shared via a press release. “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,” Miranda Lambert added. “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.”
