Miranda Lambert Wildcard Tour kicks off January 16, 2020 in Tupelo, Mississippi. Cody Johnson and LANCO appear on a majority of the dates, with Randy Rogers Band and Parker McCollum opening select shows in Kansas City, Tulsa, and Dallas. Tickets go on sale starting Friday, Sept. 27 at 10 a.m. local time.
The Wildcard Tour, named for Lambert’s November 1 seventh-studio album designated one of the “most anticipated albums of Fall 2019” by Billboard, features 27 dates across several major markets throughout the U.S. and Canada, including a January 24 stop at Nashville’s own Bridgestone Arena.
“The essence of a wildcard is always having something up your sleeve, in whatever capacity that means to you,” shares Lambert. “It is universal. Which is why I’m excited to kick off this tour with an incredible group of talented artists. We’re going to have a blast!”
The tour will feature the return of Lambert’s MuttNation Foundation campaign, Fill the Little Red Wagon presented by Tractor Supply Company. Fans are encouraged to help shelter pets in each tour city by donating dog food, treats, supplies and cash at each venue’s entrance prior to the show. Dog-loving supporters who complete a sign-up form at the donation point will also be entered to win a meet & greet with the Country icon for themselves and a guest.

Miranda Lambert just released her highly anticipated new country radio single, “It All Comes Out in the Wash.” This fall, with the impending release of her November 1 album Wildcard, Lambert has embarked on her rotating, all-female Roadside Bars and Pink Guitars Tour featuring Maren Morris, Elle King, Ashley McBryde, Tenille Townes, Caylee Hammack, and the Pistol Annies.
The most decorated artist in the history of the Academy of Country Music, Lambert is the recipient of more than 70 prestigious awards and special honors: 34 ACM Awards (including 9 ACM Female Vocalist of the Year Awards), 13 CMA Awards (Country Music Association), 2 GRAMMY Awards, the Harmony Award (Nashville Symphony), Artist in Residence (Country Music Hall of Fame), the ACM Gene Weed Milestone Award, ACM Song of the Decade Award for “House That Built Me” and several others.
The acclaimed singer/songwriter released six studio albums that all debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Album Charts, including the critically acclaimed double record The Weight of These Wings (2016), Platinum (2014), Four The Record (2011), Revolution (2009), Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (2007) and Kerosene (2005). In addition, she released three albums with her trio, the Pistol Annies.
Cody Johnson has clearly established a rabid following of loyal fans who thirst for his authentic brand of country music. The aptly named “CoJoNation” purchased half a million concert tickets in one calendar year and regularly pack out shows across the country. Johnson has already sold out over 42 shows so far in 2019 alone. For the second consecutive year, Johnson sold out NRG Stadium at RodeoHouston with 74,177 in attendance. Johnson’s first major release on CoJo Music / Warner Music Nashville, Ain’t Nothin To It skyrocketed to No. 1 on both the Billboard Top Country Albums and All-Genre Digital Sales charts. Also reaching Top 10 on Billboard 200, it became the third-highest pre-added album of all time in the Country music genre on Apple Music. Johnson’s “On My Way To You” has been RIAA certified Gold and marks his first Top 10 hit at Country radio. The former rodeo bull rider, turned prison guard, turned country star is known for his explosive live shows and electrifying stage presence. Even prior to signing a joint venture with Warner Music Nashville, Johnson’s independently released project reached No. 2 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and No. 11 on the Billboard 200 Chart. Johnson has been named one of The Tennessean’s “Nashville’s Next Stars,” MusicRow’s “2019 Next Big Thing,” iHeartRadio’s “Artists to Watch in 2019,” and highlighted on Pandora’s “Artist to Watch 2019” playlist. Johnson’s current single “Nothing On You” is currently climbing the Country radio charts and has already surpassed 16 million on-demand streams.
LANCO has paved the course for critical acclaim with the success of their 2x Platinum single “Greatest Love Story” which became a multi-week chart topper. Following the release of their No. 1 selling debut album Hallelujah Nights, which has over 560 million streams, both moments were historical in Country music as Lancaster became the first artist in 10 years to have a No. 1 on the chart solely written by that artist, while LANCO served as the first Country group in a decade to appear at the top of the Billboard Country albums chart with a debut album. As they are currently in the studio once again with producer Jay Joyce, LANCO continues to prep their upcoming sophomore album after the release of its lead track “Rival,” written by frontman Brandon Lancaster and drummer Tripp Howell. LANCO recently earned their first award as ACM New Group of the Year and has garnered additional nominations from the CMT, CMA, AMA and iHeart Awards, while Lancaster became the first member of a group to ever win NSAI’s Songwriter/Artist of the Year award. This summer, they’ve performed at Country music’s biggest festivals after hosting capacity crowds overseas and serving as support for artists such as Dierks Bentley and Chris Young.
Randy Rogers Band has been making music and touring together for more than 18 years. The culmination of the six-member band’s musical journey thus far can be heard on its latest album Hellbent. The 11 tracks were produced by Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Brandi Carlile, Jason Isbell) and recorded at the legendary RCA Studio A in Nashville, Tennessee. Randy and the band have become skilled at capturing a unique live energy and passion on their albums and Hellbent is the perfect example. So, what keeps a band together for nearly two decades? Randy cites the blend of the members’ distinctive personalities, represented in a dynamic musical chemistry that has taken the Randy Rogers Band beyond the competitive music scene in their native Texas, to a national fan base with sold out shows across the country.
Parker McCollum began building a following in his native Texas with 2015’s The Limestone Kid. The album track “Meet You in The Middle” became a hit on Texas’ regional radio chart — no small feat for an independent, 22-year-old musician — but it was the album’s widely-acclaimed follow-up, Probably Wrong, that helped Parker find national success. Born in Conroe, Texas, and currently based in Austin, the now 27-year-old bridges the gap between Texas’ homegrown music scene and Nashville’s country-industry headquarters. His songwriting earned him a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Nashville in May 2018 and a recording deal with Universal Music Group Nashville in June 2019. “Pretty Heart,” co-written by McCollum and Randy Montana and produced by Jon Randall, is Parker’s first song release since signing with MCA Nashville.
