Miranda Lambert is gearing up to get back in the studio following her divorce from husband Blake Shelton. The pair announced their split in July and, at the time their statement was released, the separation had already been finalized. Newly single Lambert, 31, is now living in Nashville, Tennessee, where she got her start and she's feeling more inspired than ever before.
After being honored with a spot on the Music City Walk of Fame on Tuesday Lambert addressed the crowd, reflecting on her earlier days living in Nashville. People magazine reported that she shared with those in attendance that more than a decade ago she decided to forego college to give her dreams of country music stardom a shot on "Nashville Star." She said that after completing her first record she grew fearful and "ran back home to Mama." Now, she said she's back to living in Nashville and insists she's never been more inspired. She revealed to fans that she spent her summer -- which she noted was her first off the road -- writing new music. Lambert did not, however, say when fans would get to hear any of her new stuff.
"A little more than 10 years ago I had gotten off 'Nashville Star' -- which was what I did instead of college -- and I was living in Nashville and I made my first record. I got scared and ran back home to Mama," she shared. "But I moved back here this year and I have never felt so inspired. This has been my first summer off the road in years, and I wrote every day. I feel more a part of Nashville than I ever have. I feel so at home here and so happy, and I am thrilled to have my name on the Music City Walk of Fame."
Not only in Lambert living in a new city, she recently expanded her family with one very cute new addition. On Oct. 2 she shared with Instagram followers that she had adopted a stray kitten. Lambert shared a photo of herself holding the black and grey cat on the photo sharing site, revealing to followers that a friend found the cat on the side of the highway in Arkansas and brought it to her. She has always been an outspoken supporter of animal rights, so her decision to keep the feral feline should come as no surprise.
