Miranda Lambert jokes she can't take a break again because 'I get married and do weird sh**'

Got to love Miranda Lambert’s sense of humor!

The 35-year-old star ended an eight-month hiatus with her recent performance at Chicago’s Country LakeShake festival and says it’ll be the last big break she takes.

"They're not going to let me have eight months off ever again because I get married and do weird sh**," Lambert joked about her team during an interview with radio station US*99. "I had the longest break I've ever had in 17 years.”

Indeed, the singer’s break was hugely productive on a personal front -- she found love with NYPD officer Brendan McLoughlin and the pair tied the knot in February.

The couple seem to be relishing newlywed life, with Lambert sharing a rare romantic snap with McLoughlin on Instagram on Friday.

However, she’s now ready to immerse herself in music again, getting ready to hit the road on her Roadside Bars and Pink Guitars Tour, kicking off in Connecticut in September.

She admitted that returning to the stage had her a “little nervous” in Chicago.

“Watching all these girls today, it’s like, ‘Dang, they’re bringing their A-game,” she said. “I gotta get on it. Mostly, it’s about words, but I did a 92-minute rehearsal and I only forgot one line.”

“Isn’t that crazy how words can stay in your head that long?” she added. “Especially with the Tito’s I drink! It’s crazy.”

Lambert also shared an update on her upcoming solo record, the follow up to 2016’s The Weight of These Wings.

She talked to ET about her musical plans earlier in June.

“I'm finishing the record right now and it's just high energy -- it's fun lyrics, it's clever, it's a lot of girl anthems," said the singer, who also regrouped with The Pistol Annies to put out Interstate Gospel in November. “I'm really excited about it.”
