Miranda Lambert Announces ‘Platinum’ Tour

Miranda Lambert now has a Platinum tour to go along with upcoming album and her platinum airstream trailer, otherwise known as Wanda the Wanderer. This week the country star officially announced dates for the outing, which features support from Justin Moore and Thomas Rhett.

“Platinum represents a lifestyle for me,” Lambert said. “It’s the color of my hair, my wedding ring, my airstream trailer,  so it’s just a natural fit for the name of my new album and it’s why we decided to name the tour Platinum too.”

Marking her fifth studio album, Platinum is due out June 3 on RCA Records Nashville. Lambert is hosting a sweepstakes to give fans the chance to preview the album this month on a little journey dubbed “Platinum Across America.”

Her 1954 Flying Cloud Airstream is headed to seven cities, starting with Los Angeles May 20. Wanda the Wanderer will be dressed for the occasion with a 6-foot-wide, 3-foot-tall aluminum crown, complete with crystals.

Fans will be selected to attend the listening sessions via Lambert’s online community and country radio. Even if you’re not picked, you’re still invited to attend the Platinum Park festivities that include a platinum hair station, sun tea stand, cornhole, leather workshop, vintage postcard photo ops and more.

“Wanda is my grandma on my mom’s side, although we call her Nonny. She’s a feisty lady full of sass,” Lambert said. “Since she can’t travel with us everywhere, we decided to name our faithful Airstream road companion, ‘Wanda The Wanderer,’ after her.

“This Airstream has been with us on tours throughout the years and is now embarking on yet another adventure! Platinum Across America! She IS the ‘queen of the road,’ and I’m so happy to share her, in all of her glory, with fans across the nation. She is what Platinum is all about! Cheers, Wanda! And remember, not all who wander are lost!”
