During her Friday night performance at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville as part of her Wildcard tour, she admitted to fans that she had "highs and lows" in the city, where she moved during her highly publicized 2015 divorce.
"I feel like Nashville is somewhere where you can go if you need to be a dreamer and not be judged about it. I spent a lot of time here on highs and lows. … I went through a really hard time in my life," she told the crowd, according to Billboard. "I moved here in 2015 in the middle of a s—show, but I was lifted up by people who were like, 'We got you, girl.' My friends and my songwriters and my fans and everybody here."
Miranda found love again a few years later after meeting her current husband, Brendan McLoughlin, in late 2018. They married just two months later.
"I feel like I've been through enough in my life to know what I don't want," Miranda told Health magazine in a December 2019 cover story. "So when I know what I do want, I snatch it right up," she added. She also insinuated that it was love at first sight for her and Brendan.
"I guess so," she said. "If that's a thing. I have eight dogs. Had love at first sight with them, too. Must be way easier than I thought."
The show proved to be cathartic for the star, who called the performance a "dream come true" on social media later in the evening.
"Thank you Nashville for an amazing night," she wrote on Instagram. "I haven't played Bridgestone Arena in 8 years. Coming back to play for a sold out crowd was a dream come true!"
Miranda had more to celebrate than just a great show! The singer celebrated her first anniversary with Brendan on Sunday, Jan. 26.
"1 year ❤️. I'm so happy to walk through this life with you," she wrote alongside a gorgeous photo of them on their wedding day.
"Thank you Brendan for making me the proudest wife and stepmom. You are the reason for all my new smile lines. I love you," she added, including the hashtag "Mrs. McLoughlin."
Happy anniversary, Brendan and Miranda!
