Miranda Lambert at Whitewater Amphitheater

Miranda Lambert's Highway Vagabond tour made a stop in New Braunfels for two nights in a row at Whitewater Amphitheater. Wade Bowen opened both nights at Whitewater, and will continue on with Miranda for two shows at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado in the form of he and Randy Rogers' Hold My Beer Tour.

It was a great night and I was told despite the fact they've had numerous shows sell out, they were expecting record bodies through the gates for the two shows. Wade Bowen is one of New Braunfels' many talented residents, and his opening for Miranda was not by any stretch a decision made at the last minute. In fact, Wade told a story about how when Miranda was 16 and would frequent Bowen's shows with her mother, she told Wade that when she one day made it big, she would have him open for her. I'm not sure how seriously he took her at the time, but her promise has come to fruition multiple times over. Both Wade Bowen and Miranda Lambert put on fantastic, high energy shows.

Miranda's last stop at Whitewater Amphitheater was in June of 2010 with her Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour which also included Wade Bowen and a guest appearance of another New Braunfels resident Cody Canada. It was later that year in October when Cody and his former band Cross Canadian Ragweed played their final show ever at Joe's on Weed Street in Chicago.

One final note... Because of a misunderstanding on my part, I just happened to get kicked out of the photography pit by security shortly after Miranda's set began. I'm by no means a professional music journalist, and didn't understand that the instructions "front of house" meant NOT in the pit. They graciously let me stay at the venue and take more photos and videos, but you live and you learn, and I hope the kind people at camp Miranda and Whitewater will accept my humble apologies for not following the instructions better.

Here are a few shots from the Friday night show!
