Miranda Lambert Survives a Car Wreck in New ‘Vice’ Music Video

Wiping off the dust and moving on. Miranda Lambert released the new music video for her song “Vice” on Wednesday, September 7. The emotional track, which is her first since splitting from ex-husband Blake Shelton, is rumored to be about the Voice coach.

In the video, Lambert, 32, is alone as she survives a car crash. Clad in a low-cut black dress, she picks herself up and walks through a rundown town. At one point, she poignantly finds herself at a crossroads, possibly a nod to her breakup from Shelton, 40. (The pair ended their four-year marriage in July 2015.)

“Another vice, another call, another bed I shouldn’t crawl out of / At 7 a.m., with shoes in my hand said I wouldn’t do it, but I did it again / And I know I’ll be back tomorrow night,” she sings in the video.

“I’ll wear a tail like a leather jacket / When the new wears off, I don’t even pack it,” she continues. “If you need me I’ll be where my reputation don’t proceed me / Maybe I’m addicted to goodbyes.”

Lambert released the emotional new single in July. It’s off her upcoming untitled sixth studio album, which doesn’t have a release date yet.

Last month, Lambert described “Vice” as a “tear-in-your-beer” type of tune. “[It] takes a lot of confidence and strength to be willing to be vulnerable. And I feel like when you listen to this song, there’s really nothing to read into. It says what it says. Everybody has a vice. Everybody goes through a time in their life when they run to it a little bit more than when they don’t,” she told Billboard magazine at the time.

Hinting at her broken marriage, she added: “Every record I’ve ever made has been a reflection of where I am right then in my life, however old I am. And I’ve never held back at all. But this time with what I happened to be going through in my life, being honest was never really a choice. Everybody knew anyway.”

Lambert and Shelton have both moved on since the breakup. Lambert is currently dating musician Anderson East, and Shelton is dating Gwen Stefani.
