She doesn’t need a man! It seems like country music star Miranda Lambert hasn’t had the best of luck in the love department — ever since her nasty 2015 divorce from country crooner Blake Shelton, she went on to date country singer Anderson East for two years until their split earlier this year and she quickly moved on to dating Turnpike Troubadours singer Evan Felker. But now, after about four months of dating, Miranda confirmed her split from Evan and she even said that she was “happily single.”
Miranda and Evan started dating in April, which was right around the same time as her split from Anderson, and they met when his band joined Miranda on tour. Even though Miranda’s love life hasn’t been easy over the past couple of years, she revealed in an interview with local newspaper The Tennessean that she is grateful for all of the heartbreak in her past because she’s been able to channel those emotions into her songwriting.
“Love is a hard road sometimes and it’s been a roller-coaster ride for me, but I’m definitely thankful for all the ups and downs because I’ve had some really good songs come out of it,” she told The Tennessean. “You’ve got to take the bad parts and put them on paper and then move on to the happy parts.”
But even though Miranda has been open about her love life with her fans, it doesn’t mean that her splits haven’t been painful — and she wants to empower her female fans who might be in the same situation by letting them now that they’re not alone.
“Sometimes the music is so honest that it’s like, ‘Oh, that kind of hurts a little,'” she said. “But, it’s good. We just want women to understand that we’re all doing the same thing. We’re all just living our lives and having the same struggles and the same joys and the same outlooks.”
