Miranda Lambert has been added as an opening act for George Strait's tour in 2006. She joins Tracy Lawrence on the 25-city itinerary. "I'm so honored that George would take a chance on a new artist like me," said Lambert, who most recently opened shows on Keith Urban's tour. She added, "I've admired him my whole life and, as a singer-songwriter from Texas, it is like winning the lottery." A complete list of Strait's tour dates will be announced soon.
