ABC/Image Group LA Miranda Lambert’s already adopted eight rescue dogs herself, and she’ll continue her animal activism on her new Livin’ Like Hippies Tour.
At the entrance to each venue on the trek, her “Little Red Wagon” will be set up to accept dog food, treats, supplies and donations to benefit a local shelter, through her MuttNation Foundation non-profit. Fans who participate will be rewarded with the chance to win a meet-and-greet with the reigning CMA Female Vocalist of the Year.
“I always try to combine my two passions, which are music and mutts,” Miranda says. “I’ve gotten to meet some amazing people that run shelters in the communities where we perform, and I always love connecting with other dog-loving fans.”
Jon Pardi joins Miranda on her 2018 trek, which covers Greenville, SC; Orlando, FL; and Atlanta, GA on its first weekend, before heading to the Northwest the first of February.
