With news of bushfires ravaging Australia, Miranda Lambert is stepping up to let first responders in the United States, like husband Brendan McLoughlin, know how much she supports their efforts.

Listeners to participating radio stations in Wildcard Tour stops can elect a local first responder who will win a pair of tickets and meet-and-greets to Miranda’s show in that city.

Miranda doesn’t take credit for the great idea, though. She says that she was inspired by New York morning show host, NY Country 94.7’s Kelly Ford. “She honors a first responder every Friday on her show, and last November I got to nominate my husband, Brendan. I wanted to be able to spread that to every city we’re visiting on the Wildcard Tour, and say thank you to the brave men and women who keep those places safe,” said Miranda. “It’s been incredibly inspiring to hear stories of local heroes, and I’m honored to have them as our guests every night.”

Brendan is a member of the New York Police Department out of the South Midtown precinct. He recently took a leave of absence, but when he isn’t in Tennessee with Miranda, he returns to New York where he has a young son.

In addition to recognizing local heroes, Miranda is also continuing her food and supply drive for area shelter pets in Wildcard Tour markets.
