MIRANDA LAMBERT BRINGS THE HEAT ON OPENING WEEKEND OF “KEEPER OF THE FLAME TOUR”

MIRANDA LAMBERT BRINGS THE HEAT ON OPENING WEEKEND OF “KEEPER OF THE FLAME TOUR”
 

ST.
LOUIS, Mo. (Monday, May 16, 2016) — “The reigning queen of country
music demonstrated why she wears the crown,” Amanda S. Amand of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch raved of Miranda Lambert’s Keeper of the Flame Tour opening
set on Friday, May 13 at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Maryland
Heights, Mo. with openers Kip Moore and Brothers Osborne. Perhaps that’s
why a storm rolled in just an hour into Lambert’s set, mother nature’s
way of offsetting the heat radiating from the seven-time Female Vocalist
of the Year’s first tour stop of the season.

“I am so ready!” Lambert shared with the packed house amidst her
exhilarating 20-song set that included a few unexpected twists like
covers of “Covered Wagon” (Danny O’Keefe), “Slow Ride” (Foghat) and
“Willin’” (Little Feat), which received a rousing response from the
crowd. Lambert also surprised fans with an jazz style cover of Ella
Fitzgerald’s “Your Red Wagon” to lead into her fiery hit single, “Little
Red Wagon.”

Supporting act, Kip Moore “… showcased the harder edged sound he is know
for” with “His raspy voice perfect for the crossover sound his trying
to achieve,” according to Sean Derrick for Examiner.com.
ACM-nominated duo, Brothers Osborne also shared the stage to bring the
crowd their hit single “Stay a Little Longer,” and others in the
brothers’ easily recognizable style. “Singer T.J. Osborne’s
full-throated baritone gets brilliant backing from John Osborne’s
guitar,” praised the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, “and both shine on the rollicking number they closed with, ‘It Ain’t My Fault.’”

“The crowd’s energy was just incredible. I told them I could feel the
rain making its way to the stage, but they didn’t leave,” Lambert said
after the rain and chilly temperatures began whipping those seated in
the lawn section outside the shed around 10:20 pm—just an hour into her
set. With arsenal still remaining, if they were staying, so was she. “We
were all soaked by the end of the night, but those nights are
what I live for.” No one minded as they all clamored closer together
celebrating a night of great music that ended just minutes before 11
p.m.
