Miranda Lambert Breaks Venue Record

Miranda Lambert has won a Grammy, received seven ACM nominations and much praise over the span of her career. Now, she has another notch to add to her belt. Lambert began her “The Revolution Continues” tour with two sold out shows at the legendary Billy Bob’s Texas in Ft. Worth. Lambert is the first artist in the venue’s history to ever sell out back-to-back shows.
"We at Billy Bob's Texas couldn't be happier with Miranda Lambert,” Robert Gallagher, Billy Bob's Entertainment Director, said.  “She was the only female artist to sell out our venue in 2010 and nearly 6000 fans per night came out last Friday and Saturday to give us the first back-to-back sellouts in our 30 year history."
The show was emotionally driven for many reasons, both happy and sad. During Friday night’s show, Lambert expressively dedicated “The House That Built Me” to her grandmother, who passed away less than a week before the show.
“Lambert is still right there, on the cusp of tremendous things,” Preston Jones, of the Star Telegram, said.  “Friday night demonstrated she can wrestle with her personal and professional lives simultaneously, one feeding the other, resulting in a superstar who’s eminently relatable.  Too few of Nashville’s elite can say the same.”
