Miranda Lambert looks absolutely stunning on the January 2016 cover issue of Cosmopolitan. Inside, the singer opens up about her life after her divorce from Blake Shelton as well as her red-hot career.
“I just want to live a life full of everything,” she tells the magazine. “Some of that might mean nights on my porch crying, drinking whiskey, and going, ‘Man this sucks right now.’ I don’t necessarily want to know that I have really bad, long, lonely nights ahead of me, but I have had some, and I still have a bunch ahead of me.”
She continues, “But it’s about living in the moment and feeling every tinge of pain, then waking up the next day and going, ‘All right, I’m going to ride my ponies. I’m going to have a girls’ night.’ That’s where I am. That’s where I’m gonna live.”
As for her career, the reigning ACM and CMA Female Vocalist of the Year says it’s never been better. “I just love what I do so much. I love songwriting and the road and the family of country music. I love being a female in country music and lifting up other females of country. I’m more in it right now than I ever have been.”
