Miranda Lambert knows she had a great man in Blake Shelton, but she also knew it wasn't working it, and that's okay with her.

The country cutie spoke to Cosmopolitan magazine this month and opened up her demise of her marriage and why she's not rushing into another relationship.

"Marriage is a tough business, and we gave it our best college try," she said, while acknowledging that she still struggles to process everything that happened.

"I had a great relationship with an amazing man," she said. "I know what good is. I have a great launching pad for the future. I will never take that for granted."

Since the shocking split, Blake has moved on with Gwen Stefani, who had her own surprising split this year. The rumor mill, per usual, has tied Miranda to several men, but that all appears to be untrue. She's just rolling with the punches.

"Some of that might mean nights on my porch crying, drinking whiskey, and going, 'Man, this sucks right now,'" she admitted.

Really, though, she doesn't need a man to make her feel her best.

"I feel the sexiest when I'm in my element, which is playing music," she said. "It doesn't really matter what I'm wearing necessarily or where I'm at, just on stage with my band playing music is sort of where I feel like I belong and that makes me feel sexy."
