Miranda Lambert cried as she performed ‘Over You,’ a song she co-wrote with ex-husband Blake Shelton. It was but one of many emotional moments during her live concert in Chicago and you can see the video below.
Miranda Lambert is in the midst of her Keeper of the Flame Tour, and this concert at at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Tinley Park, Illinois (near Chicago) is drawing much attention. Lambert was performing the 2012 song ‘Over You’ which she and her former husband Blake Shelton wrote. The heartbreaking ballad is based on Shelton’s real life experience of coming to grips with the death of his brother when he himself was just a teenager.
As she sang the lyrics – “You went away, how dare you, I miss you. They say I’ll be ok, but I’m not going to ever get over you” — US Weekly reports, she began to cry and the audience finished those final words for her.
As Chicago Now reports, she was candid with the audience telling them she was “hormonal” and had “cramps.”
Her performance is just days after she released a searing and much buzzed about single ‘Vice,’ which is her first since the divorce last year from Blake Shelton. It’s got some eyebrow raising lyrics some have speculated may be a confirmation that she cheated on her ex. (“Another bed I shouldn’t crawl / out of at 7 a.m. with shoes in my hand.”)
As the couple has moved on, Shelton has taken up with Gwen Stefani and both have released albums which they admit have autobiographical songs — respectively ‘This Is What the Truth Feels Like’ and ‘If I’m Honest.’
For her part, Miranda Lambert has also been dating a fellow music star, Anderson East. As for emotional moments in concert, it’s not her first time she’s been candid about her emotions on stage, as she prefaced the performance of a song, ‘Scars,’ telling the audience of the song, “It’s something you have to sell and really feel and really live and go through s–t, basically, to execute a song like that.”
She has recently confirmed she’s working on a new album, telling EW “I’m going on tour and want to be able to sing new stuff, but I’m taking my time and I want it to be right.”
Social media has, of course, captured her raw emotions and below you can see videos and photos that have been going viral on social media, as Miranda Lambert cries during a live concert singing the heartbreaking song she co-wrote with Blake Shelton.
