Country music singer Miranda Lambert joked that she shouldn't take time off because she got married and do "weird (expletive)" in a recent interview.
Following an eight-month hiatus, Lambert, 35, has been returning to work. Recently, she performed at Chicago’s Country LakeShake festival.
"We spend time in New York, we get to see our adorable nugget, then we get to come back to the farm and have the quiet life."
During a recent interview with radio station US*99, the "Little Red Wagon" singer said it would be the last huge break she takes.
"They're not going to let me have eight months off ever again because I get married and do weird (expletive)," she joked about her team.
Lambert had secretly married New York City Police Department Officer Brendan McLoughlin, 28, in January after meeting last fall.
"I had the longest break I've ever had in 17 years," she added.
And Lambert has made the most of her time out of the spotlight. She concentrated on her new blended family as they split time between Nashville and New York City.
In an interview with Extra in June, Lambert said:
“We have the best of both worlds. We spend time in New York, we get to see our adorable nugget, then we get to come back to the farm and have the quiet life. I’m enjoying the balance.”
“I’m loving that whole phase, and I’ve raised a million dogs, so I feel like I’ve got that part of my womanly/motherly thing is full, so this is a whole new journey."
She added: “My stepson is amazing. … [Brendan’s] a great guy and, bless his heart, he didn’t have any dogs or any animals at all when he came into this relationship, so he inherited a whole barn full. I was like, ‘Hey, I got the dogs, you got the kid, we can mix and mingle.’”
On June 30, she joined her husband McLoughlin and brother Luke Lambert to celebrate Pride in New York City.
Lambert, who has been honored by the Grammy Awards, the Academy of Country Music Awards and the Country Music Association Awards, will embark on her Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour soon.
