Miranda Lambert Headlines 5th Annual Cause For The Paws Benefitting Muttnation Foundation

Beaumont, TX — Miranda Lambert, the reigning 3-time ACM Female
Vocalist of the Year, is headed home to Texas, to headline the 5th
Annual Cause for the Paws concert benefitting Miranda’s own MuttNation
Foundation. On Friday, June 22nd, Miranda takes the stage at Ford Park
in Beaumont, TX, joined by special guests Wade Bowen and The Josh Abbott
Band. Tickets go on-sale Friday, April 27th at 10am and are available
at the Ford Park Box Office, online at www.ticketmaster.com and by phone at 800-745-3000.

Miranda’s love of animals led to the formation of MuttNation. The
foundation has successfully raised money across the country aiding
organizations and governmental institutions or entities whose purpose is
to build animal shelters for better care; increase pet adoption and
encourage responsible pet guardianship; rehabilitate sick or
unsocialized animals; fund spay/neuter programs; reduce/eliminate
euthanasia of healthy animals; and train shelter dogs for purposes of
therapy programs, assistance for wounded military personnel and
dogs-in-prisons programs.
We are so excited about the next chapter in our lives at MuttNation
Foundation in aiding and assisting animals in need,” said Miranda’s
manager Marion Kraft. “After four years in East Texas we found ourselves
in need of hosting the benefit concert in a bigger venue. Beaumont,
Texas reached out with open arms to help us with our mission. Aside from
music, this is Miranda’s biggest passion in life and those of you who
can attend the show are sure to have a time you won’t forget! Also,
remember that every penny of profit from the benefit goes into the fund
that helps us accomplish our mission, to end animal suffering and
homelessness.”

Joining Miranda at this year’s Cause for the Paws are Texas
favorites, Wade Bowen and The Josh Abbott Band. Thirteen years after
launching his career at Stubbs Barbecue in Lubbock, TX, Wade Bowen’s is
set to release music from his major label debut on May 29. With nine
No.1’s on the Texas Music Chart, multiple awards, including 2009 Texas
Music Awards Male Vocalist of the Year and the 2010 Lone Star Music
Awards Live Act of the Year, three studio albums and a Live At Billy
Bobs CD/DVD combo at the iconic club in Fort Worth under his belt.

After getting their start at the Blue Light Live, a downtown club on
Buddy Holly Avenue, the Lubbock favorites are awaiting the release of
their 3rd CD. The Josh Abbott Band has quickly become a Texas
institution, selling out many of its shows in the region-and why its
talents can’t be confined for long to the Lonestar State. “The most
important idea that I write songs with is that they’re
autobiographical,” Abbott says. “Nearly every song I write is a true
story of mine, or of someone I know. “That truthfulness breeds passion
for the material. And that passion comes through in the performances,
both in the recording studio and on stage.
“I’m thrilled to say that in the past four years we have been able to
contribute over $700,000 dollars to abused, abandoned, neglected or
unwanted animals,” said Bev Lambert, the Director of MuttNation. “We
plan on doing even more outreach in 2012. One exciting partnership that
we have entered into in this past year is with the Red Star Emergency
Relief Service to assist in disaster relief for animals displaced or
abandoned as well as the rebuilding of shelters harmed or destroyed. The
most exciting thing is that we are partnering with them to bring home
our military service dogs from the recent war relief. The service
animals are currently being retrained to provide service to the wounded
warriors and as therapy pets for their families.”

This year’s Cause for the Paws, benefitting Miranda Lambert’s
MuttNation Foundation will take place Friday, June 22nd at Ford Park in
Beaumont, TX. Tickets start at $26.75 and are available at the Ford
Park Box Office, online at www.Ticketmaster.com , and by phone at 800-745-3000. Donations can also be made at www.muttnationfoundation.com
