Miranda Lambert is opening up about her July divorce from Blake Shelton for the first time.

According to, The “Little Red Wagon” singer got very candid about her recent divorce in the January issue of Cosmopolitan magazine, where she candidly revealed that she’s still attempting to process the shocking split.

“Marriage is a tough business, and we gave it our best college try,” the singer told the magazine about their relationship, “some of that might mean nights on my porch crying, drinking whiskey, and going, ‘Man, this sucks right now.’”

After 10 years together, Lambert and Shelton announced that they were divorcing in July 2015 after four years of marriage. Shelton has since moved on with pop star Gwen Stefani.

Though Lambert also revealed she has no plans to return to the dating game anytime soon, she did tell the magazine that her relationship with Shelton was a “great launching pad” for any future boyfriends that may come her way.

“I had a great relationship with an amazing man, so I know what good is,” she said. “I have a great launching pad for the future. I will never take that for granted.”

Lambert probably doesn’t have a whole lot of time to scope out the dating scene right now anyway, as she’ll be hitting the road with Kenny Chesney for a huge stadium tour in 2016.
