Miranda Lambert let her emotions speak for themselves last night during a low-key performance at Nashville's City Winery alongside her pals Ashley Monroe, Shane McAnally and Nicolle Galyon.

The famous country crooner opened up about her hard year and how songwriting has helped her during some pretty dark times these past few months.

Shortly before singing a track written by her guitarist, Scotty Wray, Lambert got emotional about how important her close friends and family have been for her since her divorce from Blake Shelton.

"So this song, I don't know if I can do it without crying," she told the crowd. "Scotty Wray has been with me since I was 17. For a long time, he was my band. We have been through everything together, good and bad."

Lambert added, "We both went through a really sh---y 2015 and we have the tattoos to prove it. He wrote a song a long time ago called 'Scars'…I never felt like I could sing it until now."

After her intimate concert, the Grammy winner took to Instagram to thank those who were in the audience and got to share the special moment with her.

"Last night was magical. I feel so blessed to call these incredibly talented people my friends," she wrote.

"They inspire me every day. And Scotty Wray who has been by my side with a guitar in his hands for 15 years now. I've been singing his song 'Scars' with him all those years. And last night I got to sing it on my own for the first time. It meant a lot to both of us. Sometimes you have to live it to sing it. Especially a song like that. Thanks to everyone who came to share it with us."

Meanwhile, Shelton didn't address Lambert's latest gig but he did speak on this week's tabloid reports about him marrying, err, not marrying Gwen Stefani.

"For God's sake I wish I had been collecting these all the time," he wrote next to two of the magazine covers claiming stories about the new couple. "This is probably the funniest picture I have ever seen!!"
