Miranda Lambert Thanks Fans, Industry in Letter of Reflection
Miranda Lambert hasn’t been shy about admitting 2015 has been a difficult year. In accepting her Female Vocalist of the Year win at the CMA Awards on Wednesday (Nov. 4), she said: "I needed a bright spot." On Thursday night, she took stock of some of the blessings in her life.
A photo posted on her Facebook page shows the singer wearing a ball cap with her arm around a black and white horse. In the caption Lambert admits she’s still floating from the previous night’s wins, but not necessarily hers. A hashtag and the t-shirt she wore while accepting Female Vocalist serve as indications she’s as happy for Chris Stapleton as she is for herself, maybe even more. She even thanked the Male Vocalist of the Year winner for his performance.
"Horse Power"..... I'm still floating around on a cloud from last night. Thank you so much @cma for celebrating country music in a big way and for letting me be part of it. Today was a day spent reflecting on this amazing life that Nashville and country music fans have given me. And my friends. I'm so grateful #inspired #gypsyvanner #nomakeuptillnextweek #musicismedicine #chrisstapleton #unicorn #ponyportrait
Lambert reveals she’s done a lot of songwriting in the days, weeks and months following her divorce from Blake Shelton. She’s kept a low profile, although she’s regularly spotted around Nashville, having a good time with friends. It’s not clear if the 31-year-old will release new music in 2016. Her last studio album was Platinum, released in 2014.
At the CMAs, she performed “Bathroom Sink." Shelton was in the audience, although his new girlfriend Gwen Stefani was not. It’s not clear if the two ever crossed paths.
