Boston has given us such a warm reception and we are thrilled to continue to share the remarkable stories behind the hit songs with the terrific fans there.” Lambert is the reigning CMA Female Vocalist of the Year and Song of the Year winner for “Over You.” She also won the CMA Album of the Year trophy in 2010 for Revolution. Lambert’s songwriting credits include “Baggage Claim,” “White Liar,” and “Gunpowder and Lead.” MCA Nashville recording artist Moore’s debut album, Up All Night, released last year, hit the top 5 on the Billboard Country chart. Moore had a hand in co-writing every song on the album including “Beer Money,” the chart-topping “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck,” and his current single “Hey Pretty Girl.” Joining Lambert and Moore will be James (“Jesus Take the Wheel” recorded by Carrie Underwood and “Mr. Know It All” recorded by Kelly Clarkson).
