-

Miranda Lambert has been named the latest artist-in-residence at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, Tenn. The singer joins the prestigious class for the 15th installment, where she will perform two concerts at the museum’s CMA Theater on Sept. 19 and Sept. 26.

“The history that the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum holds is so important,” Miranda said in a statement. “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.”

Tickets for the singer’s concerts will go on sale July 13 at 10:00 a.m. CDT via the museum’s official website. Each show will begin at 8 p.m. and ticket prices range from $59.50 – $150, plus service fees.

“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,” said museum CEO Kyle Young. “She writes her heart and sings her truth, and her truth resonates. “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.”

Miranda joins an impressive roster of the museum’s artist-in-residence series. Established in 2003, the program has hosted notable artists including Cowboy Jack Clement, Earl Scruggs, Jerry Douglas, Vince Gill, Connie Smith, Kenny Rogers, Ricky Skaggs, Alan Jackson, Rosanne Cash and 2017 artist-in-residence Jason Isbell.

In addition to her latest recognition, Miranda is gearing up for a busy few months on the road. The “Tin Man” singer is set to kick off her co-headlining The Bandwagon Tour with Little Big Town on July 12 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
