Why Miranda Lambert is scared of the NYC subway

AOL.com Editors

Miranda Lambert may be one of country music's most famous faces, but she's still getting used to the hustle and bustle of New York City!

The 35-year-old star, who married New York City police officer Brendan McLoughlin in January 2019, splits her time between her Nashville home and Manhattan. However, she admits she's still trying to get used to the "crazy" city -- and has yet to "chill out" about its notoriously intimidating subway system.

"I don't know how to navigate it," she said to New York's Country Radio in a recent interview. "I'm scared of the stops."

She continued, "I know I won't pay attention -- I'm ADD -- so I'll be daydreaming and miss my place to get out."

Lambert has used her recent experiences in New York to influence a few tracks on her new album Wildcard, which debuted last week on Nov 1. "I've never had a fire escape before until being here," she said. "So, of course, I had to write about it - it's new. Being from a tiny town in East Texas, all of it's so crazy."

The album is her first solo record since her 2016 Academy of Country Music Award-winning album The Weight of These Wings, which debuted after her high-profile divorce from Blake Shelton.

"I kind of have my fire back and I'm not so internal and broody as I was four years ago," Lambert said to Fox News on the release. "Writing for this record, I don't know, I felt like the color came back, so the imaging reflects that and the songs reflect that. Even the wardrobe is a little bit brighter."
