Miranda Lambert Talks About Writing Music with Ex-Husband Blake Shelton & The 'Special Moment' They Shared

Miranda Lambert is looking back on the process of writing a song with her ex-husband Blake Shelton and how they shared a “special moment” while working together.

The former couple co-wrote Miranda‘s song “Over You” and it was inspired by Blake‘s experience with losing his brother Richie to a car accident in 1990.

“My ex-husband, Blake, had lost a brother and it’s one of those moments where even if you’re married to someone, sometimes you find something new about them,” Miranda said in the latest episode of Essentials Radio on Apple Music. “Dudes don’t open up about things but he started telling me about the experience of it all. And I was like, ‘Have you ever written about it?’”

Miranda says that Blake told her that his father used to say, “You don’t get over it. You just get used to it.”

“And I was like, ‘Well, could we write it? Do you want to try or is that invasive?’” Miranda explained. She says she told Blake, “I would never try to write your story because I didn’t live it, but maybe I could help because I’m an outside perspective but I feel your pain talking to me right now.”

Miranda and Blake won the CMA Award and ACM Award for Song of the Year for “Over You.”

“It was really a special moment and I’m so glad we shared that song and that it helped his family heal, to have that together,” Miranda said.

Earlier this year, Miranda celebrated her second wedding anniversary with her new husband.
