BACKSTAGE PASS

As Miranda Lambert wraps the initial U.S. leg of her Wildcard Tour, she is pausing to recognize the heroic first responders this tour has brought to her attention. Having been inspired by Kelly Ford of WNSH New York, who routinely honors first responders on her morning show, Lambert invited radio listeners to nominate local heroes in each tour market. Selected honorees, in turn, received a pair of show tickets as well as the opportunity to meet Lambert ahead of her performance.
