Since her divorce with Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert has been busy writing songs and keeping herself aloof from the limelight for years, Now she's back in the groove, with her new music doing the talking for her.
However, she feels quite nervous about being true and honest in her latest song, Vice - what she calls "a-tear-in-your-beer song".
Lambert who is now 32 says, "I've been hunkered down for a year writing, recording, trying to live a normal life and getting ready for a new album. No one's heard from me. I've been pretty silent all this time."
"And now that I'm coming with a song, it does make me nervous, and I hope that people are respectful of it and understand what I've been doing. But I've never hidden anything or tried to be too mysterious. I'm pretty straightforward in my music."
"I always have been, and that hasn't changed. With my songwriting, it's taking a journey with what's been going on in my everyday life - good, bad, ugly and everything in between. I feel like the right thing to do was just come out with something really honest."
It's clear that Lambert couldn't keep her post-divorce emotions out of her mind and which is evident in the lyrics of her new track.
