On April 19, Texas native Miranda Lambert will tape an upcoming episode of Austin City Limits for the show’s 43rd season. The appearance will support her November album release, Weight of These Wings, which was one of last year’s best albums.
The last time Lambert was on the show, in 2011, she performed “Kerosene,” “Baggage Claim” and “Gunpowder and Lead,” her first top ten country hit. Her then newly formed girl band, The Pistol Annies, joined her on stage for “Hell on Heels.”
Lambert is a fierce, record-breaking powerhouse. Since she began her music career in 2003, she has been the first woman to win the CMA Award for Album of The Year twice. She has had the most consecutive wins as Female Vocalist of the year, seven to be exact, at the ACM Awards. Lambert has also had twelve Grammy nominations with two wins.
Austin City Limits started in 1974 with the show’s first guest, Willie Nelson, and has been a celebration of Texas root music with its many branches. It was also the inspiration for the creation of The Austin City Limits Music Festival, now a two-weekend event in Austin pulling in thousands of diverse fans.
There will be a ticket giveaway for Lambert’s taping a week prior to the event, so fans should pay attention to the ACLTV website.
