As the summer season bids farewell to the Alabama Gulf coast, The Amphitheater at The Wharf is losing no momentum with another great evening of modern country. Miranda Lambert is bringing her “Keeper of the Flame Tour,” with Brothers Osborne lending their support. As the evening’s opener, Brothers Osborne will be using their set as a warmup for their first headlining tour in September, in support of its latest album, “Pawn Shop.”
Kip Moore will sustain the show’s energy with songs from his double-album repertoire. “Wild Ones,” his latest release, has spawned two memorable singles in the form of “I’m to Blame” and “Running to You.” In a live setting, Moore’s passionate vocal work is matched only by his stage presence.
Lambert entered the country world with her debut “Kerosene.” Since then she has become modern country’s premier diva. In 2014, Lambert released “Platinum,” which earned glorious praise from both critics and fans. With her new single “Vice” scoring radio rotations, Lambert’s fans should look for a new release in the new future and possibly new material at The Wharf.
