Lambert starts scholarship at Nashville university.

Miranda Lambert told the sold-out crowd at 3rd and Lindsley Tuesday night that she “had been living on caffeine and sad songs lately.” The comment came near the beginning of Lambert’s Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Unplugged event that also featured frequent cowriters Natalie Hemby and Jessi Alexander along with new artists Clare Dunn, RaeLynn and Courtney Cole.Miranda Lambert has established that Miranda Lambert Women Creators Fund, which will provide a $40,000 scholarship to a woman in Belmont University’s Mike Curb College of Entertainment and Music Business.

The fund plans on giving more than $40,000 to a female in the music industry who majors in music business, songwriting or entertainment industry studies. Miranda admitted she was nervous as the show got started with her performance of “Bathroom Sink,” a song about facing self-rejection from her latest album, Platinum. Many of Shelton’s hit songs – some of which were written by the songwriters with which Lambert performed – played before the writer’s round started.

She also mentioned that she had been writing a lot this past week with her fellow songwriters onstage, including Jessi Alexander, Natalie Hemby, Luke Laird and Jon Randall. Her 2015 Roadside Bars and Pink Guitars Tour will also feature Ashley Monroe, RaeLynn, Cole and Dunn. “I really support female artists in any genre, especially country music right now,” the “Little Red Wagon” singer explains. “I’ve taken girls on tour for a long time, and I want to continue to do that because I feel like I can give them a platform.” At the top of the show, Lambert’s voice quivered as she told the crowd of fans and music industry executives that she was excited and nervous to celebrate her favorite women (and men) songwriters that were on stage. In addition to Alexander and Hemby, Alexander’s husband Jon Randall and Hemby’s publisher and fellow hit songwriter Luke Laird sat in for the evening.

As for whether Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen would ever reprise their role of Michelle Tanner, Sarandos said, “the Olsen twins are teetering [over[ whether or not they’ll be around.” Co-creator and executive producer Tina Fey says being in the Netflix world doesn’t mean she plans to go overboard, noting that many people tell her they watch the show with their children. In keeping with that sad song theme, Miranda launched into the cheating song, “Dear Diamond,” which she recorded a few years back with Patty Loveless. Kimmy Schmidt, about a young woman (Ellie Kemper) rescued from a cult who begins a new life in New York, was originally intended to air on NBC and wasn’t until after filming was completed that it moved over to Netflix.

CHICAGO — Farm Aid, spearheaded by Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Neil Young, and Dave Matthews, will mark its 30th anniversary Sept. 19 at the FirstMerit Bank Pavilion in Chicago. Little Big Town‘s Karen Fairchild made a special appearance to sing with Miranda on her latest single, “Smokin’ and Drinkin’.” Karen also sang “Pontoon” for the audience and returned to the stage at the end of the night to trade vocals with Miranda on “Girl Crush.” The other writers onstage mostly sang hits they had written for other acts with Miranda singing backup.

It’s also the fifth time the benefit concert for family farms will be held in Illinois, including the inaugural show in 1985 in Champaign and the 20th anniversary concert in 2005 in south suburban Tinley Park. Jessi Alexander sang two hits she’d written for Blake — “Drink on It” and “Mine Would Be You.” Natalie Hemby sang lead vocals on the songs she’s written with or for Miranda, including “Baggage Claim,” “White Liar” and “Virginia Bluebell,” which is a song of hope Miranda says she’s been listening to a lot in the past week.

Just another Sunday in the South. @mirandalambert and friends.

Also scheduled to perform are Mavis Staples, Imagine Dragons, Kacey Musgraves, Jack Johnson, Holly Williams, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, and Blackwood Quartet. SAO PAULO — One of the organizers of a birthday party that brought the father of the late Michael Jackson to Brazil says he’s in stable condition in a Sao Paulo hospital after suffering a stroke.

To close the show, Lambert performed her current Academy of Country Music Awards Song of the Year “Automatic” and then invited Fairchild back on stage to sing one of her favorite songs on the radio – Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush.” Lambert belted out the second verse on her own before Fairchild jumped back in to finish the song.
