Miranda Lambert Teams Up With Nonprofits to Build Pet Adoption Center in Her Hometown of Lindale, Texas

Miranda Lambert’s MuttNation Foundation has partnered with Rescue Rebuild—an organization that works to rebuild, repair, and renovate animal shelters—to construct an adoption center and two dog parks in her hometown of Lindale, Texas.

The two organizations are raising funds to complete renovations to an older building donated by the City of Lindale. The new facility will include updated amenities, a meet-and-greet area for potential adopters to meet pets and two dog parks. In addition, the City of Lindale will donate two acres of land and be responsible for ongoing maintenance of the dog parks.

“MuttNation has grown from a dream of ours into an organization that assists thousands of rescue facilities and pets,” said Miranda. “This collaboration serves as an exciting way to give back to the town where my passion for rescue pets all began.”

Construction on the adoption center and dog parks is set to begin this fall.

MuttNation will match all donations dollar for dollar for the project.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
