Miranda Lambert to headline 5th Annual Cause for the Paws concert

Miranda Lambert is coming back home to Texas to headline the 5th Annual Cause for the Paws concert, accompanied by Wade Bowen and the Josh Abott Band. The concert will benefit the MuttNation Foundation and take place at Ford Park in Beaumont, Texas on June 22.

Last year the 4th Annual Cause for the Paws concert, also headlined by Miranda, was able to raise $300,000. The cause remains close to Miranda's heart, since she adopted her dog Delilah from the local shelter, who joins her many other rescued animals at home.

MuttNation Foundation's mission is to raise money for organizations that build animal shelters for better care; increase pet adoption and encourage responsible pet guardianship; rehabilitate sick or unsocialized animals; fund spay/neuter programs; reduce/eliminate euthanasia of healthy animals; and train shelter dogs for purposes of therapy programs, assistance for wounded military personnel and dogs-in-prisons programs.

Tickets can be purchased now at the Ford Park Box Office, as well as on www.ticketmaster.com or by calling 800-745-3000.

Her course of study, health and career intentions now revolve around plant-based living.

The only thing that makes her happier than talking about food is traveling, but it’s a pretty close tie.
