Miranda Lambert will not be performing in the coming months. Instead, the country singer stays at home – and with that she has made ‘peace’.
In a recent Instagram message, the 36-year-old revealed that she was struggling with what she was telling fans about her life during the coronavirus outbreak. With canceled shows and missing the birth of her best friend’s first baby, things look a little different from what Lambert expected.
“I’m not very good at socials anyway and a time like this makes it much harder for me to figure out how to be,” wrote the Grammy winner. “Tuesday of this week I finally realized I could unpack. The next few months there will be no shows for me, no sound checks, no bus calls, no flights. Just home. Once I processed it, I really got a sense of peace although, like all of us, my concern about the state of the world is still going through the roof right now. “
So what does Lambert do instead?
“I started working on some projects around the farm that I kept running for because I had to leave for work and some that I wanted to flee because organization is not my favorite,” she said. “I’ve had some cool virtual happy hours with friends and family.”

She added that she and her husband, Brendan McLoughlin, “cooked, cleaned, trained … spent time with dogs and horses and just quietly together. In addition to country music that constantly comes through the speakers. “
For the first time in a year, Lambert has also written a few songs, one of which is in collaboration with artist Ronnie Dunn, she said.
“Today I spent most of the day thanking Jesus for shining the sun,” Lambert continued. “We miss our road family, the New York family, and I can certainly miss my Texas family.”
She also said that her “sister sister” April Dobervich had her first child, a boy named Finn, and Lambert was amazed to “see him through a screen for the time being.”
She added, “I wish I was there in person. Good Lord willin soon. “
But Lambert hangs in there, thanks in part to a care package from her parents, including a bottle of wine from her own label, Red 55 Winery.
Fortunately, this box arrived today and I felt my heart leap. Some wine out @ red55winery, freshly canned salsa, apple butter, Paw Paws BBQ sauce and a note on napkin, “she wrote.” I now feel safe knowing that although (my parents) are over 600 miles away, I’m connected … Sending light to all first responders and health professionals. Stay at home. Call home. “
The “Over You” singer shared a photo of her new provisions along with several others from around her farm just south of Nashville, Tennessee. In it, she and McLoughlin, 28, are seen playing with their chicks and dogs. The post also included a close-up of one of her horses.
It is no surprise that Lambert goes through these difficult times when she spends time with her husband, whom she married in February 2019. In October, she told Willie Geist of Sunday TODAY that McLoughlin is the love of her life and she adores him for his easygoing personality.
Lambert’s new album, “Wildcard”, was released last November and until recently the singer was on her 27-date “Wildcard Tour”, which has apparently stalled. All over the world, mass meetings have been canceled to reduce the spread of the coronavirus.
Although fans won’t see Lambert performing anytime soon, they can still enjoy her latest music video for ‘Bluebird’, which was released on March 20.
“Bluebird” is the second single from Lambert’s new album, “Wildcard”.
