For the second year in a row, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton performed at a benefit concert in Tishomingo, OK to help local charities. Lambert’s MuttNation Foundation hosted the event which raised nearly $70,000. There were acoustic performances from Lambert, Shelton and Shelton’s cousin Clancy Davis, as well as a cocktail party, dinner and live and silent auctions. Tickets sold out well in advance, drawing attendees from all over Oklahoma and Texas. Proceeds went to causes in Tishomingo, OK and surrounding areas, with specific attention to the local Veteran’s program and the Tishomingo Animal Shelter.

Lambert’s Third Annual “Cause for Paws” Benefit in Tyler, TX is coming up on Saturday, May 15, 2010 with proceeds going to The Humane Society of East Texas. Special guests include Whiskey Myers, Kacey Musgraves and Nan Kelley for an intimate evening of music and cuisine in the serene setting of Villa Di Felicita.

Thanks to Miranda’s loyal Ran Fans and the East Texas Citizens, The Humane Society of East Texas has become a no kill sanctuary since the fundraiser began three years ago.
