Words mean a lot to Miranda Lambert as she attempts to move on from her divorce from Blake Shelton — and on Thursday, Sept 3, a poignant message on a New York sidewalk brought the chart-topping country singer to the ground.
Having spent a night out with her girlfriend, Lambert came across a piece of sidewalk with the words "Protect Yo Heart" stamped across it. Feeling understandably moved by the sentiment, the "Platinum" singer decided she couldn't walk past the words without reacting.
Wearing a figure hugging black dress with lace sleeves, the platinum blonde singer got down on the floor and had her pal snap a photograph of her lying dramatically next to the words, her head turned towards them and her pretty tresses falling across her face.
"I don't normally lay on the sidewalk in NYC," Lambert captioned the photo which she shared via Facebook later that night. "Words move me," she added. "Words make me move. #NYC."
The 31-year-old singer had already shared another, more upbeat photo earlier that evening, which showed her and a pal smiling broadly after having dinner at the city's swanky Fresco by Scotto restaurant. She gave the smiley picture the hashtags #girlsnight, #foodcoma, #NYC.
Earlier this week, Lambert made an appearance at the ACM Honors awards, where she also had matters of the heart on her mind. As well presenting Loretta Lynn with the Crystal Milestone Award to mark her 50-year career, she went on to perform the singer's classic divorce song, "Rated X."
