Miranda Lambert Shares Her Key To Happiness: “I Just Don’t Give Two Sh*ts About People’s Opinion Of Me”

Miranda Lambert graces the cover of PEOPLE magazine this month and in the issue, the country singer talks about being happier than ever.

The “If I Was a Cowboy” singer is the first female country singer to open a bar on Broadway in Nashville, released a new album this year, Palomino, and just announced a new home collection line for Walmart.

Despite all of her professional accomplishments, Lambert has been the subject of tabloid fodder about her divorce from Blake Shelton and whirlwind marriage to NYPD officer Brendan McLoughlin.

“When I turned 30, I started to take life in a new direction and really start to understand myself a little better,” she says. “And going through hard things obviously makes you get to know yourself better. When you get broken down pretty good, you look at the mirror and you go, ‘I have to spend some time with me, learn who I am and what I want.’ I got to a really good place with myself. Then I met my husband.”

“I want to be open about how happy we are,” Lambert shared. “I just don’t give two s—s about people’s opinion of me, my marriage, my music or anything else. I just care that I’m being me. He jumped right into this lifestyle — there’s a learning curve taking a New Yorker straight to the woods — but it was a big laugh. It’s nice to have a partner in that, someone by your side that supports you, loves you and believes in you. He loves me for me. It’s a really cool thing to have in my life, at this point in my life.”
