There’s only one man in Miranda Lambert’s exciting, high-profile life, and that’s her equally famous husband and fellow country music star Blake Shelton. For the next few months, however, she’ll be seeing a lot more of someone else.
The Locked and Reloaded Tour, which started in January, brings Lambert and friend Dierks Bentley together again to co-headline the tour. They rock Oklahoma City at the Chesapeake Energy Arena, 100 W. Reno Ave., Friday, March 8. Show starts at 7:30 p.m. with special guest Lee Brice.
Both Lambert and Bentley are credited with bringing some much-needed country roots to today’s airwaves. Lambert, who lives in Tishomingo, Okla. with Shelton, has been named top female vocalist multiple years by both the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music. Her current album, Four the Record, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. She also anticipates the release of a new album with her trio, Pistol Annies, in 2013.
Bentley brings his own share of accolades. A multi-platinum selling artist, he saw his album Home debut at No. 1 in 2012. He was also Grammy Award nominated for Best Country Solo Performances for Home. With 10 No. 1 songs to his career, he combines influences from bluegrass and rock music into his sound.
On a double-billed show, the audience will find that Lambert and Bentley take a similar approach to country. As for touring with Shelton, it’s not on Lambert’s calendar yet, but would it really surprise anyone if it came true? Our fingers are crossed.
Tickets to the concert are $28 and $57.75, available at the box office and online at www.chesapeakearena.com.
