In the “Locked & Reloaded Tour” announcement, Lambert promised her co-headlining trek with Bentley would involve “epic badassery.”
“Making music for our fans is the best job in the world,” Lambert said in the news release. “It’s especially great being able to take to that music on the road with someone I respect as an artist and human being.”
The singer-songwriter is the reigning two-time Country Music Association and reigning three-time Academy of Country Music Female Vocalist of the Year. Her current album, “Four The Record,” made history when it debuted last year atop Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, making the Texas native the first country artist in the 47-year history of the chart to have each of her first four albums debut at No. 1. “Four The Record” won the ACM Album of the Year Award, and her headlining “On Fire Tour” played to more than a million fans this year.
Co-written with her husband and fellow Tishomingo resident Blake Shelton, “Over You,” the emotional second single from “Four the Record,” earlier this month won the CMA Song of the Year trophy and was certified platinum for selling 1 million downloads.
Bentley combines classic country, bluegrass and rock ‘n’ roll in his music. The Arizona native’s sixth studio album “Home,” released in February, debuted at No. 1 and has spawned three chart-toppings hits, marking 10 career No. 1 singles for the multiplatinum singer-songwriter. His five previous studio albums have sold more than 5 million copies and earned him an invitation to join the Grand Ole Opry.
“Some of my favorite times on tour over the years were with Miranda and her crew. We have a lot in common musically and our fans do too. It’s going to be a killer year,” Bentley said in the news release.
