Miranda Lambert Reveals Her “Side of the Story” About Her Divorce on Latest Album
The couple was an iconic duo in the country music world, and seeing them split was devastating, but also left many asking, "What went wrong?"
Miranda now reveals that if anyone has any questions all they have to do is listen to her latest album, The Weight of These Wings.
“If you want to hear my side of the story or my opinion of what happened, it’s all on there,” she told Billboard magazine.
“There’s no mystery anymore — take from it what you will.”
Despite this statement, the 33-year-old makes it clear her new album isn’t a breakup record. It’s much more than that.
“I was like, ‘Let’s feel it all,’” she said about working on the album. “I was ready to have the days where I can’t even stand up and the days where I’m celebrating.”
It’s clear this method has worked for her.
Wings has done incredibly well, hitting No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and winning her the Album of the Year gong at the Academy of Country Music Awards.
Miranda’s not only doing well in her professional life, however. She’s also found new love.
For the “Gunpower and Lead” singer, this album was also an opportunity to show her more sensitive side.
“I’m more known for my fiery personality and my confidence, but that’s not me all the time,” she said.
“I won’t look at things ever again in the same light, because different things in your life bring you to a deeper level with yourself,” she continued.
“I won’t take pain for granted anymore.”
During her interview with Billboard, Miranda also made it clear that her music will never be political and that’s not what her music is about.
“I am a 100 percent believer in not ever using the platform that I’ve built for anything other than music, because music to me is an escape from your own reality,” she said.
“I don’t want to go to a show and hear somebody preach about their opinions.”
“It’s so divided [in politics], you can’t win anyway — and what are you winning?” she went on to say.
“For someone to agree with you, and now you’ve spoken your peace and pissed off many other people, just for one person to go, ‘She’s right’? It doesn’t do any good.”
