Miranda Lambert’s Car Crash In ‘Vice’ Linked To Blake Shelton Divorce, Performs At ACM Honors

Miranda Lambert car crash Blake Shelton divorce

Miranda Lambert can survive even the most brutal car crash, according to the Huffington Post. The 32-year-old country music singer has recently released the video for her hot single “Vice,” and she proves she is a survivor.

This is Miranda Lambert’s first song since her breakup from Blake Shelton, and her surviving the car crash may be a hint that she walked away from the split unscathed, just the way she did from that car accident in the music video.

The video begins with a scene showing a flipped car and smoke pouring out of it. Then the video cuts to Miranda Lambert, who is lying face down near the car. Many suggested that the car crash symbolizes the country singer’s personal life.

And even though that car accident sure looks like a deadly one, Miranda Lambert somehow managed to survive it, drag herself out of the car’s window, and walk away with no scratches whatsoever. But is her heart unscratched after the split from Shelton as well?

Then, Miranda Lambert is seen walking to the nearest bar, where she drowns her pain in alcohol and musters up her strength to move on. The 32-year-old singer herself has previously explained that “Vice” is about somebody wanting to lay it all out and be honest.

In addition to licking her wounds after the split from Shelton, Miranda Lambert was also busy performing at this year’s ACM Honors event, which was held earlier this month, according to Taste of Country.

During the event, Miranda Lambert came on stage to pay tribute to the late Merle Haggard and performed her own version of Haggard’s “Misery and Gin.” The 32-year-old country music singer was dressed in an all-black ensemble and looked confident on stage.

But that wasn’t the only reason Miranda Lambert was invited onstage, as the singer was also honored with the inaugural Merle Haggard Spirit Award, which is presented to “uncompromising artists in the spirit of Merle Haggard.”

In a press release released after the broadcast of the event, ACM EVP/Managing Director Tiffany Moon said Miranda Lambert is the only one who deserves to be honored with the first-ever ACM Merle Haggard Spirit Award.

“Merle was an integral part of the Academy’s history, and it was important to us that we honor his legacy.”

Although the event was held on August 30, it was broadcast only last week. Apart from Miranda Lambert, many other country music stars were invited to the Ryman, including Dierks Bentley, Kelsea Ballerini, and Maren Morris.

Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert’s ex-husband, was also present at the event, teaming up with Keith Urban, Toby Keith, and Bentley to pay tribute to Glen Campbell, who was honored with the ACM Career Achievement Award.

Miranda Lambert and Shelton announced their divorce during the summer of 2015, and Shelton started dating Gwen Stefani soon after.

Miranda Lambert has also devoted some of her time to charity lately, according to the CMT. The country music star created a $40,000 scholarship at Nashville’s Belmont University and will be honoring a female student majoring in songwriting, the entertainment industry, or the music business.

Miranda Lambert’s scholarship is called the Women Creators’ Scholarship, and the singer has already chosen its very first recipient, Anna Vaus, who is currently a junior at Belmont. Vaus released a press release in which she thanked the country singer for honoring her as the first recipient of the Women Creators’ Scholarship.

“Not just because of what a crazy opportunity it is for myself, but because the tide is changing for all of the young women in this industry.”
