Miranda Lambert wants more women to have the kind of success she's had, so she founded a new scholarship at Belmont University.

The six-time Academy of Country Music female vocalist of the year is performing an acoustic show in Nashville, Tennessee, on Tuesday to raise funds for the Miranda Lambert Women Creators Fund.
