Miranda Lambert returns to BOK Center in Tulsa this weekend, leaving just four more stops in her Miranda Lambert’s Tulsa Stop In 2017 Highway Vagabond Tour.
Country singer Miranda Lambert started 2017 with a bang as she launched her Highway Vagabond Tour, which ran (and will continue to run) in 18 stops around the US from January 26 to March 19.
Miranda Lambert first announced the Highway Vagabond Tour in October last year, the Boot reports, and was inspired by one of the newest songs, “Highway Vagabond,” from her latest album, The Weight of These Wings.

But what’s more inspiring about Miranda Lambert’s Highway Vagabond Tour, apart from showcasing some of her classics alongside new songs from her grittier new album, is that the tour also launched Miranda Lambert’s new animal shelter campaign called “Fill The Little Red Wagon.”
Country Fancast reports that “Fill The Little Red Wagon” aims to help animals in need and support local animal shelters. The “Fill The Little Red Wagon” campaign lets one lucky concertgoer to meet Lambert before the concert just by dropping off pet food, treats, or toys into the “Little Red Wagon” set up at the entrance of the concert venue on the evening of her performance.

In fact, Miranda Lambert’s mutt campaign has already been quite successful as Anna Yendes from Castaway Animal Rescue Effort in Springfield, MO, shares as follows.
“The food drive from the concert was a huge help to our organization. People donated more than 600 lbs of food to us, plus an assortment of treats, canned food and other supplies. Our shelter, like many others, run on very tight budgets so we are constantly low on everything and worried about running out. Food drives like these are great because it allows us to help more animals that need it. Our cats and dogs were very happy when I got back to the center with all the donations!”
Miranda Lambert’s latest stop for her Highway Vagabond Tour-slash-“Fill The Little Red Wagon” campaign drive took her to the BOK Center in Tulsa, where Lambert hasn’t returned to since her divorce with Blake Shelton in July 2015. Lambert’s return to Tulsa has many country and Lambert fans driving for hours just to get to attend her concert.
Miranda Lambert fan Sharon Hebestreit tells Tulsa World that she and her two daughters drove almost 1,000 miles just to get to BOK Center, Tulsa, for Lambert’s Highway Vagabond Tour stop.
“I got a Miranda ticket and these pink sunglasses. And they actually cost $9.99 (sharing in the spirit of Miranda Lambert’s “Pink Sunglasses” song about $9.99 bargain bin sunglasses)!”
Miranda Lambert opened the Tulsa Highway Vagabond stop with her first huge single, “Kerosene,” which was followed by more Lambert classics as “The House That Built Me,” “Little Red Wagon,” “Mama’s Broken Heart,” and “White Liar.” Miranda Lambert has also started pushing singles from her newest album during the tour.
A lot of Lambert fans who went to see her on the Tulsa stage took it to social media to share their happiness and appreciation of Miranda Lambert.
