Miranda Lambert to perform at Akron Civic Theater

By malcolm Published: February 15, 2010

Multiplatinum selling, Grammy nominated, Academy of Country Music Award winning singer/songwriter Miranda Lambert will bring her “Roadside Bars And Pink Guitars” tour -- her first as a headliner -- to the Akron Civic Theatre on Friday, April 9.
Lambert, who was introduced to many through her third place finish on the Nashville Star singing competition back in 2003, has since begun building a backlog of hit singles (which will be good for the inevitable Greatest Hits album that every successful country artist eventually releases) including the Grammy nominated Kerosene, Famous in a Small Town and the more recent Dead Flowers as well as the CMA and ACM nominated tunes Gunpowder & Lead and album Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.
Lambert has opened for other starts including Toby Keith, Keith Urban and George Strait, but this will be her first tour as a headliner.

Tickets go on sale sale at 10 a.m., Friday, Feb. 19 at all Ticketmaster locations, and the Akron Civic Theatre ticket office or charge by phone at (800) 745-3000
Reserved Seat Tickets: $29.75 / $39.75
