Why Miranda Lambert Didn't Do Interviews for Her Latest Album: 'I'd Already Been Through H---'

  Why Miranda Lambert Didn't Do Interviews for Her Latest Album: 'I'd Already Been Through H---' Miranda Lambert had a good reason for not doing any interviews before she released her latest album — she didn’t want to “rehash” the heartbreak that inspired it. The Weight of These Wings was written while Lambert was going through a very public divorce from fellow country singer Blake Shelton in 2015. “I came into [manager] Marion [Kraft’s] office and said, ‘I’m not speaking to anyone until they hear this record,'” Lambert, 34, told music journalist Holly Gleason in an interview with HITS Daily Double. “I thought that was fair,” Lambert continued, explaining that she thought the songs spoke for themselves. From “Vice” to “Tin Man,” “all the sad moments were there, all the truths were right in those songs. All you had to do was listen. I didn’t need to say anything,” she remarked. The singer also revealed that she wasn’t eager about the prospect of discussing the painful memories that inspired the album over and over again. “It was going to be h---, and I’d already been through h---,” she explained. “It was h--- putting it on paper, putting my words on paper. So I didn’t want to rehash. I’d finally gotten to a place where I wasn’t sad anymore.
