OFFSTAGE: Miranda Lambert’s On Fire Tour Starts With Snow

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Seriously, snow? On the very day Miranda Lambert’s much-anticipated On Fire tour kicks off, the weather is unleashing its wrath? Today’s (Jan. 12) forecast in Rockford, Ill., is a blustery four to eight inches of snow. So if you’re going, Ran Fans, allow extra time to get there and get home.

Speaking of “Gettin’ You Home,” make sure you arrive at the show early for Chris Young. His show is so incredible. And I know he’s honored to be sharing the stage with Lambert.

“It’s an amazing feeling, especially with her. I’ve got a good relationship this year especially,” Young told CMT Radio. “I ended up hangin’ out with her and Blake a lot on the road and love both of them as people and as artists. So, the fact that she asked me and my band to go out with her and be a part of that tour is big, and it’s something I’m overwhelmingly looking forward to.”

If you can’t make it to the snowy show, you can catch Young on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday (Jan. 17).
