In 2015, Miranda Lambert knew that there was no hiding anymore.

In order for her career to continue as it was, she would be forced to come clean with everything happening in her personal life, including her divorce to hubby Blake Shelton.

And while no one knows for absolute sure if her current single “Vice” gives that honest peek into what was happening in her life, Miranda does give an indication in a brand-new interview that the lyrics were chosen very carefully.

“Everybody else knew what was going on in my life anyway, so I wasn’t really hiding anything,” reflects Miranda in a new interview with “Billboard” about the writing process for the song, which utilized the talents of co-writers Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne. “We just started writing it, and I think when one person in a co-write is just willing to be honest and lay it out there, it sort of opens the door for everybody, and Shane and Josh sort of made it their story as well. So it’s sort of like little parts of all of us.”

“It’s based on a true story, but it’s not, in its detail, autobiographical,” adds Shane. “It’s not spelling out necessarily what she did. It’s just saying people get over things in different ways, and she was clearly getting over something.”
