Miranda Lambert recently told Rolling Stone magazine that she would still shoot a two-timing man.  But as each year passes…it seems like Miranda has other things to sing about and reflect on.  She says that she sings a lot about where she is in her life.  And right now she's a humble and very much in love married woman.  Miranda acknowledges that life is good, but she still deals with things just like the rest of us.
