Miranda Lambert: Summer Live Preview 2010
Dates: Through Aug.
Ticket prices: $10-$30 (Purchase tickets here)
Lambert broke through with tough-minded songs, but radio and fans are now noticing her softer side. Pairing her with red-dirt rock act Ragweed and country balladeer Nichols is an inspired package.
Outlook: Touring on a creative concept, priced to sell, Lambert will take a step up in her touring career to become a bona fide country headliner. She'll also kick ass along the way.
