Miranda Lambert continues to pour her heart out onstage as she recovers from her split from Blake Shelton.

Dressed in a hot pink halter skater dress with black trimming, she performed Loretta Lynn's 1972 song "Rated X," which is about divorce, as part of a tribute to the country music icon at the 2015 ACM Honors on Tuesday.

The track contains lyrics such as, "Well if you've been a married woman / and things didn't seem to work out / Divorce is the key to bein' loose and free / So you're gonna be talked about."

"She sang songs that were not necessarily appropriate to sing at times, like this for me," Lambert told the audience. "So, I'm so thankful for women empowerment."

Lambert, 31, and Shelton, 39, revealed in July they are divorcing after four years of marriage. They have no children together. At an August concert, Lambert addressed the split onstage.

At the 2015 ACM Honors, Lynn was honored with the Crystal Milestone Award for her 50-year music career. Lambert posed for photos with the singer at the event and also hung out with fellow country and pop star Luke Bryan.

"I think he looks like Gilbert Gottfried..." Shelton joked about the couple's mutual friend's look, when asked about it on Twitter.

Bryan had talked to E! News in August about the couple's split.

"Going through a divorce is tough and I just hope they are at peace with whatever they need to be at peace with," he said.

And if singing about divorce wasn't enough, Lambert, dressed in her pink dress, also posted on her Instagram page a video of her and friends covering Taylor Swift's angst-filled anthem "Bad Blood" for a "glam jam."
