The shade! It seems like Miranda Lambert is sending a message to ex-husband, Blake Shelton, in her band’s new song, “When I Was His Wife.” Miranda recently reunited with Pistol Annies, after she and another group member, Ashley Monroe, took some time to focus on their solo careers and boy, do they have some things to say!
In the opening verse of the song, Miranda sings, “He’d never cheat / He’d never lie / He’ll love me forever til the day that we die / He’ll never take me for granted / I said that too when I was his wife.”
The song is about a failed marriage and Miranda can obviously relate. In the chorus, she sings, “When you’re blinded by diamonds and driven by looks / Hon’ you can’t build a mansion with a piece of sawdust / Holy matrimony, best day of your life / I said that too when I was his wife.” Hmm, since the 34-year-old has only been married once — to Blake Shelton — we can’t help but think this song is about the downfall of their relationship.
Pistol Annies put out another new song on Oct. 29 called “Got My Name Changed Back” — also about a nasty divorce. She sings, “It takes a judge to get married, takes a judge to get divorced / Well the last couple years, spent a lotta time in court / Got my name changed back.”
The former couple has expressed their feelings about one another several times over the past few years, and has tried to address all of the rumors as to who potentially cheated. Miranda released her album, The Weight of the Wings in 2016 and she told Billboard, “If you want to hear my side of the story or my opinion of what happened, it’s all on there. There’s no mystery anymore — take from it what you will.” Earlier this year, Blake hinted that Miranda was the one that cheated. He wrote, “Been taking the high road for a long time… I almost gave up. But I can finally see something on the horizon up there!! Wait!! Could it be?! Yep!! It’s karma!!”

Yikes! Seems like Miranda has some pretty harsh words for Blake, but then again, isn’t that what makes her songs so good?
