MuttNation Foundation Will Attend CMA Fest

MuttNation Foundation, founded by Miranda Lambert and her mother, Bev Lambert, will have a paw-stomping, tail-wagging presence at next week’s CMA Fest. After leading the Mutt March, featuring over 1,000 dog-loving participants and their pets, parading from Nissan Stadium to Walk of Fame Park, Miranda’s MuttNation will bring some of the most adorable, adoptable pups on the planet to the floor of Xfinity Fan Fair X at Music City Center.

“Our goal is to raise awareness for shelter pets across the country while we find as many loving homes as possible for the incredible pups from Nashville Humane. So, if you’ve got a heartbeat, be prepared to fall in love the minute you see them,” said Miranda, the proud owner of eight rescue dogs.

From Thursday through Sunday, 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Xfinity Fan Fair X, Nashville Humane Association will have a steady supply of playful pups looking for their new forever families. And while there’s no shortage of amazing performances during CMA Fest – including Miranda’s Nissan Stadium show on Saturday night – few things will be as entertaining as when the adoptable dogs all strut out to the MuttNation exhibit on the Music City Center floor, each day at noon.

“Nashville Humane is thrilled to partner with MuttNation again and can’t wait to join forces with the country fans to find more loving homes for our dogs,” said NHA’s Laura Chavarria, Executive Director. Here is a preview of some of your new best friends that will be available for adoption.

The MuttNation March and Adoption Drive are sponsored by Tractor Supply Company, the largest rural lifestyle retailer in the United States that also serves as a one-stop shop for all things pet. Tractor Supply is passionate about animals and supporting organizations like MuttNation Foundation that put deserving pets in loving homes.

2019 also marks the 10th Anniversary of MuttNation Foundation, which has grown from a mother-daughter venture to become a leading voice for animal advocacy. Since its inception, Miranda, Bev, and the MuttNation team have stepped up in times of natural disaster, providing millions of dollars to help rescue thousands of animals as well as supporting hundreds of shelters across the country. To help celebrate MuttNation’s 10th Anniversary, a one-of-a-kind Epiphone guitar signed by Miranda will be raffled off to benefit MuttNation’s mission. Enter the drawing here:

Seven-time CMA Female Vocalist of the Year MIRANDA LAMBERT has added six multi-Platinum certifications to her repertoire, as albums REVOLUTION and CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND have been certified double-Platinum by the RIAA, along with singles “The House That Built Me” (3X Platinum), “Mama’s Broken Heart” (3X Platinum), “Over You” (2X Platinum), and “Automatic” (2X Platinum).

The most-decorated female artist in CMA Awards history, Lambert is nominated this year for Female Vocalist of the Year, as well as Single and Musical Event of the Year for “Drowns the Whiskey” with Jason Aldean.

The GRAMMY Award-winner recently wrapped her stand as the 2018 Artist-in-Residence at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, performing two sold-out nights at the CMA Theater. Night one Lambert deemed “The Ones That Got Away,” performing deep cuts from her rich catalogue, many for the first time in a live setting. Her second show reunited supertrio Pistol Annies (Lambert, Ashley Monroe, and Angaleena Presley) for their first performance in five years, debuting tracks from their new album INTERSTATE GOSPEL, arriving Nov. 2 on RCA Records.

MIRANDA LAMBERT x RECORD-BREAKING MEGASTAR

Miranda Lambert made country music history following the 53rd Annual Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 15th. The country mega-star now stands as the most decorated artist in ACM history with a collective 32 career wins. Lambert won three awards during Sunday’s show including her ninth consecutive “Female Vocalist of the Year” award and two for “Song of the Year” for her emotionally-raw hit “Tin Man” (songwriter and performer) from her Platinum double-album The Weight of These Wings.

 

“I cannot believe this, I really can’t,” Lambert said. “I love country music. It’s my entire life, and the fact that you all care so much about what I’m doing, I’ll never take it for granted.”

 

Lambert also stunned in the performance of her newest single, “Keeper of the Flame,” which hits radio on April 30th. The single is her latest from the powerhouse double-album, The Weight of These Wings.

 

This summer, Lambert alongside award-winning group Little Big Town, will be hitting the road in their co-headlining, The Bandwagon Tour, which kicks off on July 12th in Charlotte, NC. The tour will travel along the U.S. Atlantic seaboard, Southeast and Midwest regions.

Celebrity Hair Summer Style Tips

According to Celebrity Stylist Johnny Lavoy, whose clients include Miranda Lambert and Kristin Cavallari, warmer weather is the time to embrace and enhance your natural textureYou most likely spent the majority of fall and winter blowing your hair out because you didn’t want to go out in the cold with wet hair, or because the dry air guaranteed a perfect hair day.  Now it’s time to work with your mane for those more humid and hot days.”

Below are Johnny’s top 4 tips for embracing a natural summer wave.

1.       Diffuse. A diffuser distributes the heat from your dryer without the wind (wind is what will separate the wave while drying, resulting is frizz). Pairing a diffuser with an ionic dryer is the most efficient way to prevent frizz. I recommend the PRO Beauty Tools ionic dryer that comes with both a nozzle and diffuser so you’re all set for any season.

2.       Define. If your wave is weak or needs a little definition I suggest using a heat tool to help your style along. I love the new 3-in-1 ceramic wand from PRO Beauty Tools. It comes with three different size attachments so it will cover any size wave you want to create.  It’s even heat distribution will prevent the hair from getting excess heat. Defining is as easy as picking up a few rebellious strands and simply wrapping them around the wand for a couple seconds. PRO TIP: leave the last 2-3 inches of the hair out for a more relaxed natural look.

 

3.       Maintain. The great thing about wavy styles are they are easy to maintain, so you don’t have to redo the styling process every day. An easy way to keep your wave overnight is to gather your hair into a high ponytail and create a loose braid. The high pony will make it comfortable to sleep on and the braid will enhance the wave while you sleep.

 

4.       Condition. One of my favorite tips is style with a deep conditioner. This is great if you’re spending the day at the beach or plan on wearing your hair in a slicked braid or bun. The treatment will help protect your hair from the sun’s rays while also penetrating the cuticle as the heat from sun opens it up. It’s a genius way to look chic while treating your hair. Pair it up with a hair accessory and no one would guess you’re doing double duty.

MIRANDA LAMBERT’S “TIN MAN” RECEIVES TWO GRAMMY AWARD NOMINATIONS

“TIN MAN” NOMINATED FOR

BEST COUNTRY SOLO PERFORMANCE

AND

BEST COUNTRY SONG

Vanner Records/RCA Records Nashville and prior GRAMMY Award-winner Miranda Lambert receives TWO nominations for her critically lauded, current radio single, “Tin Man,” for the 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards.

The emotionally raw song received nods for BEST COUNTRY SOLO PERFORMANCE, which applauds the vocal performance that Lambert delivers as well as BEST COUNTRY SONG, which highlights the songwriter which Lambert also touts along with co-writers Jack Ingram and Jon Randall.

With how special “Tin Man” is to Lambert it’s no surprise that the artist who is “at the top of her game” [Rolling Stone] penned and performed such a beautiful and raw song that has continued to stand on its own and now today both the artist and songwriter behind “Tin Man” be acknowledged by the GRAMMY Awards.

The double GRAMMY Award-nominated song is one of 24 tracks from the Texas singer-songwriter’s sixth studio, double, album The Weight of These Wings and appears in two of the four categories that comprise the Country music field, adding further endorsement to the declaration that “Lambert is just what country needs.” [New Yorker]
