Miranda Lambert  has not said much about the break-up of her marriage from Blake Shelton a year and a half ago. She threw herself into her new album and did not say much to the press at all.

But last week while performing at Joe's Bar in Chicago, Miranda finally opened up about how she dealt with the divorce. Fox News reports that she says she dealt with the split by tipping a few back:

I got divorced so I started drinking a little extra. I found myself in Midtown in Nashville three nights in a row at like last call and with the lights coming on, and I'd be sitting

there, so I wrote a song about it.

Sometimes pain results in some amazing artistic creations. "Ugly Lights" is the song she is talking about and is featured on Miranda's album "The Weight of These Wings".
