As we're SURE you're aware, Miranda Lambert had it pretty rough last year following her very public split from Blake Shelton.
Now she's opening up about it in the best way possible — in the "vulnerable" new song Vice!
A couple weeks ago, we got our first listen of Lambert's new track about heartache and vices of course, and now we know more heartbreaking details about where the songstress' head was at when writing it!

The 32-year-old opened up to Billboard about her newest track, saying:
"I've been hunkered down for a year writing, recording, trying to live a normal life and getting ready for a new album. Now that I'm coming with a song, it does make me nervous, and I hope that people are respectful of it and understand what I've been doing."
Quite often artists who go through a major public breakup come back with a hot track that helps them rise above their pain, but Miranda approached her grief a bit differently as the singer said her track is really "a tear-in-your-beer song."

The Grammy winner continued:
"Everybody has a vice. Everybody goes through a time in their life when they run to it a little bit more than when they don't."
Blake's ex also talked a bit about how it "takes a lot of confidence and strength to be willing to be vulnerable" as she dished on opening herself up:
"When I'm journaling my life and putting it on paper to a melody and then allowing people to hear it, I can't worry about what somebody might twist it into. Because it's not like I'm hiding anything."
Vice has already found a lot of success as a single, and Lambert hopes to release her entire fifth album before Christmas!
