What if you could play Follow the Leader, and your leader was Miranda Lambert?
That’s exactly what’s going to happen on June 6 in downtown Nashville, as Lambert takes the lead in the Mutt March parade. It’s all part of the 10th anniversary celebration of her MuttNation organization.
“We’re hoping that 1,000 or more people, some with their furry friends, will join us walking in support of shelter pet adoption,” said Lambert. “Country music lovers and dog lovers, they go hand-in-hand, and CMA Fest provides the perfect setting to make that special connection.”
MuttNation is a donation-supported 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. It was started in 2009 with a mission to promote the adoption of shelter pets, advance spay and neuter and educate the public about the benefits of these actions. Last year, 55 shelter dogs were adopted during the MuttNation activities at CMA Fest.
