The 2018 CMA Music Festival is just around the corner! The Nashville event is set to run from June 7th through 10th. Besides music, the event will also feature country music star Miranda Lambert‘s MuttNation Foundation organization!
“MuttNation’s mission is to promote the adoption of shelter pets, spay & neuter, and to let everyone know why these things are so important. Since country music fans are the most passionate people out there, CMA Fest is a great place to accomplish these goals,” Lambert shared in a press release. “And it’s the world’s best feeling when you make the perfect match between a rescue and a new owner, knowing it’s creating such an incredible bond that will grow deeper and stronger every day. It just fills my heart with happiness to be part of something so special.”
This marks the third consecutive year the organization has appeared at CMA Fest. Partnering with Nashville Humane Association, MuttNation will have adorable adoptable animals available each day from 11AM to 3PM at the MuttNation rig located inside the Music City Center. Bev Lambert, Miranda’s mom and co-founder of MuttNation Foundation, will be on-site to have photos taken with each adopting family.
Watch Bev introduce adoptable pup, Mabel, below. Yes, Mabel will be making the CMT Fest journey too!
Last year, Bandit was one of the lucky dogs adopted during CMA Fest.
“My husband and I attended the CMA 2017 festival and participated in the first MuttNation walk. At the end of the walk while Miranda was giving her speech about rescue dogs, Bandit literally walked up to us and I asked the worker if I could hold him. As Miranda was responding to the question “how do you know when a dog is right for you?” her response was “the dog will come to you.” There I was holding Bandit. We stood in line until Fan Fair opened and waited for Bandit to arrive. We adopted him!” MuttNation supporter Francine shared via Instagram.
