Looks like Miranda has come down with a bug that won't allow her to go to Australia for her tour with Alan Jackson.  I think anybody that uses their voice for a living will tell you, it is so frustrating to get a throat infection or a chest cold.  I compare it to a mechanic who has a toll break on them or a NASCAR driver that has a tire go down in the middle of a race. 

According to her official website, Miranda Lambert has been forced to cancel all of her forthcoming Australian tour dates due to illness with a respiratory infection.

“I was very much looking forward to Australia with Alan Jackson and performing for all the music lovers down under”, said Lambert in a statement on her website.

Jasmine Rae and McAlister Kemp will take Lambert’s place on the Alan Jackson tour and Australian country star John Williamson will replace her at the CMC Rocks the Hunter this weekend.
