Miranda Lambert will be heading out on tour this summer, and it sounds like fans may get to hear new music in between all their favorite songs.
Although she isn’t providing any details about when her next album will arrive, Lambert has opened up about the project.

Appearing backstage on the CMT Awards on Thursday night (June 9), Lambert told the press, “I’ve really worked since last summer just writing and recording, so no one is more excited than me to have the next thing come through and show off what I’ve been doing,” according to Rolling Stone Country.
She promised that she hasn’t disappeared; she’s just been busy. “I know I’ve kind of been ‘not around,’ but I’ve been around. I’m getting really close, and hopefully by mid-summer we’ll have some new music people can hear,” she said.
CMA Music Festival is being held in Nashville, and Lambert got the time to discuss how the city has helped shape her. “It’s been a really cool journey because I’ve lived in Nashville for the last year almost now,” she said. “I’ve been able to write so much more than I had before, just not being on the road constantly and moving from Oklahoma. All my friends [in Nashville] are songwriters. We’re either hanging out and accidentally wrote a song or we had it set up, so I probably wrote like five days a week for five months straight.”
Although her ex-husband Blake Shelton may have gotten the first creative word about their split with his newest album If I’m Honest, it sounds like Lambert’s prolific songwriting will yield its own honesty whenever it arrives.
