THURSDAY 1/23. Simmons Bank Arena. $40-$95.
Appearances at Simmons Bank Arena from country’s good/bad girl (and animal rescue activist) have become a near-annual affair. Maybe it was opener Jon Pardi, or the fact that her colleagues in the Pistol Annies dropped in to bring the gunpowder, but Lambert sold out the arena in 2018; she returns in support of “Wildcard,” her seventh studio album. Expect old-school Miranda tunes like “Gunpowder and Lead” and “Tin Man,” liberally peppered with circa-2019 sass, a la “Pretty Bitchin’”: “I got a pretty good time in the checkout line/With all the free press I’ve been gettin’ … ’Cause I use what I got/I don’t let it go to waste/I’m pretty from the back/Kinda pretty in the face.” Cody Johnson and LANCO open the show.
