"This is TJ. He pulls our 1955 flying cloud airstream @wandatwanderer to every show we play," she captioned the photo. "She is a rolling bar named after my mother’s mother who we lost last spring. A gem of a woman who always had a feisty personality and a whiskey in her hand. Wanda has been on the road for 8 years and is our center. The place where the whole tour gets together to celebrate what we do. She is a little piece of home on the road for all of us. TJ inspired me this week.
"I got to the venue on Friday and he had the biggest smile on his face," she continued. "He showed me all the things Wanda had done to tune her up for the tour. New screen, new wheels, a polish, and the best part is he had her crown repainted and replaced the missing rhinestones she had lost along the road in the last few years. To me that is a metaphor for this life. Sometimes you lose a rhinestone or two but you keep your crown on. Thanks @tj8500! We all appreciate you. Especially Wanda."
Lambert just announced the Nov. 1 release of her upcoming album, Wildcard. The singer-songwriter co-wrote all 14 songs on the album, including "Locomotive," "Bluebird," "Mess With My Head" and her current single, "It All Comes Out in the Wash."
"It's fun!" Lambert told Entertainment Tonight about her next set of tunes. "I'm finishing the record right now and it's just high energy – it's fun lyrics, it's clever, it's a lot of girl anthems."0comments
