LINDALE, Texas — Lindale’s hometown hero, Miranda Lambert, returned home to sign her new cookbook for fans at the Pink Pistol Tuesday.
Fans from all over the world were at Lambert's store and were lined up since 8 a.m. to meet their favorite artist.
"It means a lot that she's coming back to her roots and hometown and all that to celebrate all her fans," Maggie Reese Blythe, a fan from Houston, said.
Lindale City Manager Carolyn Caldwell said it’s not just the book signing that benefits the city, Lambert’s star power draws more than 50,000 visitors to Lindale every year.
"We have people that come from all over the world, to her store, because she doesn't have an online presence. So she really helps bring them here," Caldwell said.
Lambert has put Lindale on the country music map and it has made a huge economic impact on the city.
"They'll go to our local boutiques and shops and therefore, it's it's a win-win for everybody," said Visit Lindale Director Seong McLaren.
The community said they’re forever grateful for Lambert’s continuous support for her hometown.
