Miranda Lambert Reflects on Difficult Year After Divorce from Blake Shelton
After releasing her new song "Vice," country star Miranda Lambert recently opened up about what she went through last year following her divorce from Blake Shelton.
Shelton and the "Little Red Wagon" singer officially ended their relationship in July 2015 after spending four years together as a married couple. Although Lambert admitted that the divorce was heartbreaking and painful for her, she eventually moved forward by focusing on her music, according to People.
Aside from her music, another factor that certainly helped Lambert get over her past relationship was her new boyfriend Anderson Easton.
The last year of my life has been one of heartache and healing, ... Of learning to be honest .... Accepting the flaws and celebrating the smiles. Finding peace in dark places ... having some moments alone with me. Facing fears and feelings... All of them. I got to know my guitars...became friends with a pencil and paper ... Used melodies to lead me places I had never been.... Made music with my friends. Because music is medicine. This means the world to me. Thank you for joining me on this journey. #vice #musicismedicine

As for her new song, "Vice" is the first song that Lambert release ever since her 2014 album Platinum came out. Based on its lyrics, Us Magazine noted that the song might be about her previous relationship with Shelton.
As noted by the site, the song is very emotional and contains lines that refer to the pain of a heartbreak.
"Sweet salvation on a dining room table / Waiting on me, where the numb meets the lonely," some of the lines from the song read. "It's gone before it ever melts the ice."
However, Lambert has not yet confirmed if "Vice" really is about her relationship with Shelton.
Shelton, on the other hand, has noticeable moved on too since his divorce from Lambert. Aside from focusing more on his career, he also became more involved with fellow The Voice judge Gwen Stefani.
Shelton even collaborated with Stefani on the song "Go Ahead and Break My Heart" which came out in May of this year, a month after the No Doubt vocalist finalized her divorce from Bush's Gavin Rossdale.
