Miranda Lambert Gives Props to the Men in Her ‘Revolution’
Miranda Lambert is prepping to launch the next leg of her Revolution tour, titled Revolution Continues, featuring Justin Moore and Josh Kelley as her opening acts. "The new one is a different lineup," Miranda tells The Boot. "Instead of Eric Church, we'll have Justin Moore. I was out with him on Brad Paisley's American Saturday Night tour. I got to see his show every night, and he's a little spitfire, too. He's got a lot of energy and a take-no-prisoners attitude. I am excited, because I think that fits well with my show and my personality."
"Josh Kelley, obviously, we have great chemistry from being on tour all fall together," Miranda continues. "He's such a great songwriter and great singer, and he's a lot of fun to have out and just has a great attitude. And [he's] one of those people that when he's in the room, it makes everybody excited and feeling good."
As far as the tour itself, Miranda wants to make a few changes to the stage, set list and production to give fans a different experience than she presented to them last year. "We're going to upgrade our production a little bit for the next round in the spring," explains the Texas songbird. "I don't want people who came to the show in the fall to have to see the same show. If they buy a ticket, I want to give them something different. So, [I want to] find some new covers and change the set up a little bit and try to make it better than the last time, just keep doing that the rest of my career is what I hope to do."
The Revolution Continues trek launches February 24 in St. Louis, Mo., and is currently scheduled to wrap in Melbourne, Fla. April 16. Click here for more of Miranda's tour dates.
