Harvey Strikes and Miranda Lambert Gets to Work
It's happy news after a week spent in Texas helping animals in need of rescue after Hurricane Harvey. Lambert's MuttNation charity cleared 100 dogs from animal shelters to make room for new pups that need temporary housing. Now home, she'll enjoy a fairly quiet month before she heads to Alaska and Canada for some fall tour stops.
Lambert has 12 lifetime CMA Awards, including two for Album of the Year and one each for Song and Single of the Year.
