Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton quietly divorced last summer and both have moved on with new relationships, but Miranda admits Vice, the lead single from her forthcoming album, is still so raw and reminds her of a time when her life was unraveling.
“I wrote this at the exact time of the s**t hitting the fan,” Lambert tells The Tennessean.
“I think it’s great, though. It’s documented on paper with emotion.”
She co-wrote the track with One of Us singer Joan Osborne, and admits it’s all about the things you should run from in your life.
“Sometimes when you’re going through something in your life, you may run to some things you shouldn’t and run from some things you shouldn’t,” she says.
“I think this song is an opportunity to just be honest and own it and say, ‘Yeah, I have some imperfections, and I live a life and here and there I might get in a pickle’.
“Everybody has a vice they run to when they need comfort, and I think that’s what this song says. There’s no mystery here. I run to things for comfort just like everybody else.”
