Miranda Lambert uses music as a way to escape the loneliness brought upon by the COVID-19 crisis. She even shared her top two albums currently on repeat. 


Miranda Lambert, 36, has found a way to ease the hardships of the past few months amid the coronavirus crisis. Luckily, she didn't have to look very far.

The country megastar pointed to music as one of the ways she deals with the effects of the pandemic. She shared details with People TV, including the albums she is currently listening to.

Lambert and her husband Brenda McLoughlin have been quarantining together since the start of the lockdowns. They are undoubtedly lucky to have each other, but it is not quite enough for such a difficult period. 

Lambert does virtual happy hours with family and friends, and she keeps herself busy at home with projects around the couple's farm. Over time, she made peace with having to stay home.

Jeremy Parson of People TV caught up with Lambert at the preshow of the Country Music Awards earlier this week. The singer explained that music has a way of bringing togetherness among people. She said

"I definitely have used music to bring me comfort and joy throughout quarantine and all the things going on in the world. I didn't start writing for a long time, but I did listen to a ton of new music."

Lambert revealed that she has been listening to Cayle Hammack's album "If It Wasn't You," and Waylon Payne's album, "Blue Eyes, THe Harlot, The Queer, The Pusher & Me."  



Both albums are new. Lambert also revisits Ashley Monroe's music regularly. It all helps with her mental health. The songstress is not oblivious to the potential effects of COVID-19 on her relationship either. 

In July, Lambert joked, "If newlyweds can survive a pandemic, then I think we're good, you know? It's a good test." So far, she and McLoughlin seem to have passed. 



Still, Lambert struggled to combat anxiety due to not performing and — more importantly — not knowing when she would do so. Thankfully, she found other activities to engage in.

She was eventually rewarded for her efforts when she performed at the Academy of Country Music Awards on Wednesday. Lambert sang her heart out in Nashville, Tennessee. 

Lambert stepped out with a high ponytail, a light blue satin shirt with denim on the chest and middle and fringes going all around. She also sported a pair of black jeans. 

The singer performed her hit song, "Blue Bird," from her latest album, "Wildcard." Co-writers Luke Dick and Natalie Hemby also joined in. Undoubtedly, it was a relief for Lambert, as well as her fans.
