Choctaw Grand Theater | Durant, Oklahoma
The modern Queen of Country, Miranda Lambert comes to Choctaw Grand Theater for the first of two nights on Thursday 12th August 2021 as part of her extended Wildcard Tour! Lambert, like many artists, had her previous touring plans scuppered, but she's back with a bang and can't wait to get back out on the road:
"We were lucky, we toured into March of 2020," she told Bobby Bones on a recent episode of his podcast. "We were one of the artists that actually got to go out. We didn't get to finish the Wildcard Tour, but we're going to go back out next year and do our own thing."
Country music singer and songwriter Miranda Lambert began her career in 2001 when she self-released her eponymous album. Two years later she finished in third place on the televized singing competition Nashville Star, which led to her getting a record deal with Epic Nashville Records. She released her major-label debut, Kerosene, in 2005, which topped the Billboard Country Albums chart, reached number 18 on the Billboard 200, launched four top 40 Billboard Country Chart singles, and has been certified platinum by the RIAA. Lambert’s next six studio albums all hit number one on the Country Albums chart and reached the Top 10 of the Billboard 200, including 2014’s Platinum, which topped the chart. To date, she has won three Grammy Awards, twenty-nine Academy of Country Music Awards, six American Country Awards, seven CMT Music Awards, and fourteen Country Music Association Awards, among others. Her latest release is the 2021 collaborative album with fellow country artists Jack Ingram and Jon Randall, The Marfa Tapes.
