Miranda Lambert shared her experience co-writing "Over You" with Blake Shelton.
During a discussion with Essentials Radio on Apple Music, Lambert opened up about writing the song "Over You" with Shelton back in 2011. The track scored Lambert a Country Music Award for Song of the Year in 2012. According to Lambert, the song was inspired by Shelton's late brother, Richie Shelton.
"My ex-husband, Blake, had lost a brother, and it's one of those moments where even if you're married to someone, sometimes you find something new about them," Lambert said. "Dudes don't open up about things, but he started telling me about the experience of it all. And I was like, 'Have you ever written about it?'" Shelton hadn't, which led to the pair co-writing "Over You." And for another notable country couple, discover The One Thing Worrying Garth Brooks Most About His Wife Having COVID.
Lambert offered to bring outsider perspective to help write the song with Shelton.
Shelton told Lambert that his father used to say, "You don't get over it. You just get used to it." Lambert then suggested that the two could write about Shelton's brother together, if that wasn't too invasive for Shelton. "I would never try to write your story because I didn't live it, but maybe I could help because I'm an outside perspective, but I feel your pain talking to me right now," she told her then-husband. Ultimately, Shelton agreed they would write the song together. And for more on celebrity romance, Jennifer Aniston Shared the One Thing She'd Never Do in a Relationship.
