Miranda Lambert gives two concerts at Mohegan Sun
Us magazine, where would you be without Miranda Lambert?
Lambert has become a gossip-mag fave ever since her marriage to Blake Shelton imploded. She dated a musician … and then dated a married musician … and then married an NYC cop that she hadn’t been dating very long.
But who cares? The relevant thing is she is still a first-rate country star.
One of her new singles, “Mess with My Head,” rips with rock ‘n’ roll sass, a definite change from the melancholy edge and restrained sound of her masterful post-Blake double album “The Weight of These Wings.” The follow-up single “Bluebird” has a sweet swing and optimism to it.
Her latest album, “Wildcard,” is coming out Nov. 1, but, in the meantime, fans can see what Lambert is up to when she does two nights of concerts at Mohegan Sun Arena. She’s got some female-power-in-concert support, too, with supporting acts Pistol Annies — consisting of Lambert, Ashley Monroe, and Angaleena Presley; Elle “Ex’s and Oh’s” King; and Caylee Hammack.
Miranda Lambert, 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Mohegan Sun Arena; with Elle King, Pistol Annies and Caylee Hammack; $59-$99; 1-800-745-3000.
