With songs like “White Trash” and “Airstream Song” it should come as no surprise that Miranda Lambert prefers her laid-back Tennessee farm life over city life.
But now that she's married to New York City police officer Brendan McLoughlin, she's had to get used to the hustle and bustle of big city living. The newlyweds have been splitting their time between the Big Apple and Tennessee and the country superstar is still adjusting to the big change. “My heart is in Texas and Tennessee, but my husband has opened my eyes to a whole new world,” she told PEOPLE about living in New York.
With her new city life, comes a bit of a learning curve. Especially when it comes to the New York City subway system. “I don’t know how to navigate [the subway],” she admitted in a recent radio interview. “I’m scared of the stops. I know I won’t pay attention.”
But it's not just the subway that makes her uncomfortable. It turns out, big city living drains this country girl. “It does drain your energy,” she said about NYC. “Spending a lot of time here, I start to get anxiety and stress, and go, ‘Okay, that’s three days. No more sirens. I’m good.’” When she starts feeling really stressed about it, she can thankfully head back to her relaxing farm and recharge.
“It’s just really a place where I can regroup,” she said about her other home. Thankfully, her hubby is helping her adjust to New York and helping her out any way he can.
Lambert just released her seventh studio album, Wildcard, last week and just like her new life, the album represents her past and future. “Every one of them has a little bit of past and future in them — every single song,” she told iHeartCountry
