Miranda Lambert opens up about a decision she’s glad she didn’t make—dropping out of high school to pursue music. “I don’t know if I would’ve dropped out. But my parents didn’t want me to . . . which is another reason I might have,” she laughs. But a program at her high school allowed Miranda to work on her music and graduate early. “[The program] was definitely a great thing and I’m so thankful for it,” Miranda tells Country Weekly. “I think [finishing high school] taught me a lot.” Miranda also talks about her new album, Revolution, and her upcoming plans with boyfriend Blake Shelton.
