Miranda Lambert's MuttNation Foundation will be on the scene at this year's CMA Fest. The foundation, which Lambert launched in 2009 with her mom, Bev Lambert, will host a Mutt March on June 6 from 8:30 a.m to 10:30 a.m. The country superstar will lead the nearly one mile march through downtown Nashville from Nissan Stadium to Music City's Walk of Fame Park.

"We're hoping that 1,000 or more people, some with their furry friends, will join us walking in support of shelter pet adoption," Lambert said in a statement. "Country music lovers and dog lovers, they go hand-in-hand, and CMA Fest provides the perfect setting to make that special connection."

For $25, you can register to march your own dog in the Mutt March. Purchase a registration here.

The MuttNation Foundation will also have adoptable dogs from the Nashville Humane Society inside Xfinity Fan Fair X at Music City Center during the 2019 CMA Fest. Last year, the foundation drive helped find home for 56 dogs during the festival.

Lambert and the foundation donated $150,000 to animal shelters across the U.S. as part of their Mutts Across America initiative. Grants were given to shelters in every state in America. The MuttNation foundation, a 501c3 non-profit organization, celebrates its 10 year anniversary this year.

In the wake of Hurricane Harvey in 2017, MuttNation Foundation saved over 70 dogs affected by the storm.
