"Feel like I've just been through three years of therapy": Miranda Lambert looks back at the tough times
Miranda Lambert was performing at the Nashville's Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum as their artist-in-residence for this year when she got real about hurting.
Poor Miranda Lambert, she's had a tough time ever since her split with ex-husband Blake Shelton in 2015. Even though he found love not long after the split with Gwen Stefani, Miranda's been pretty unfortunate in love, it seems. When she did find love, it was fleeting; however, she and her boyfriend Evan Falkner broke up after just six months of dating. "I feel like I’ve just been through three years of therapy," she told fans in an intimate concert in Nashville on Wednesday.
Miranda was performing at the Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum as their artist-in-residence for this year. This was one of the two shows that are slated for Lambert. She warned fans even before the show started that it was going to be teary and if they weren't into that, then they should leave. No one left, of course - country music and "sad" go hand in hand. She said, "We have not played some of these live ever before, so I hope you have forgiving ears,” she told her audience. “And I also want to warn you, if you don’t like sad songs, you might want to go ahead and leave."
She's not really known for performing a lot of live shows, but this one in particular reportedly had her heart and soul in it. She is said to have crooned to 'Love Is Looking For You.' She also performed, 'Greyhound Bound for Nowhere' with her dad Richard - a song she had written for her him all the way back when she was still 17. She said, "The first song we ever wrote together was a cheating song. Kinda weird, but it’s all right."
A little, yeah.
When Miranda and Evan had split up in August, she had said, "Love is a hard road sometimes, and it’s been a roller-coaster ride for me, but I’m definitely thankful for all the ups and downs because I’ve had some really good songs come out of it. You’ve got to take the bad parts and put them on paper and then move on to the happy parts."
A source also claimed to People that he had "broken her rules." "I don’t think it was a dramatic split, but he knew what he was ‘allowed’ to do based on her rules and he broke them. He did something that he knew she wasn’t going to approve of, she assumed he did it, and he didn’t deny it." The exact cause of their split still remains a mystery but here's hoping this "therapy" has helped Miranda!
