Miranda Lambert let music consume her during the coronavirus pandemic, but she didn’t write too much while under quarantine.

"I definitely have used music to bring me comfort and joy throughout quarantine and all the things going on in the world," Lambert, 36, told PeopleTV moments before the 2020 ACM Awards kicked off on Wednesday.

"I didn't start writing for a long time," she added. "But I did listen to a ton of new music. It just shows you that people need that to comfort them and feel united even though we're not together, we can listen to the same records and talk about it as kind of feels like we listen together."

Asked what she’s been blasting in her headset, the “It All Comes Out In the Wash” performer said Caylee Hammack's new album “If It Wasn't You,” and her "good friend" Waylon Payne's new project, “Blue Eyes, The Harlot, The Queer, The Pusher & Me” were atop the list.

"Those are my two for now, and I always visit some old Ashley Monroe too — gotta do it," said Lambert.


Lambert has been holed up with husband Brendan McLoughlin amid the quarantine period and although the pair secretly married in Jan. 2019 at their home in Nashville, Lambert said the slowdown period of the pandemic has given her a sense of “peace.”

"For the next few months for me there are no shows, no sound checks, no bus calls, no flights. Just home," she iterated. "Once I processed it, I actually got a feeling of peace even though, like all of us, my anxiety about the state of the world right now is still through the roof."

Lambert is slated to perform “Bluebird” during Wednesday’s ACM Awards – her second radio single from her seventh studio release, “Wildcard.”


She also took home the Musical Event of the Year award for “Fooled Around And Fell In Love.”

Inslee Broke Law by Bringing Apples to Fire-Ravaged Areas

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Washington Gov. Jay Inslee thought it would be a nice gesture to bring some apples from his own tree when he visited communities ravaged by wildfire last week.

Instead he was breaking the law.

By bringing apples from trees growing at the governor’s mansion in Olympia, Inslee was violating state regulations about bringing homegrown fruit from an apple-maggot quarantine area into pest-free counties.

The Spokesman-Review reported that Washington is divided into quarantine zones, with large signs along the highways warning people not to transport homegrown fruit into pest-free areas. Most of Eastern Washington, which grows 65% of the nation's apples, is pest-free.

“It was a nice gesture, but not well-thought-through,” said state Sen. Judy Warnick, R-Moses Lake. “As the state’s executive, he should have followed the law to keep our state’s agriculture safe instead of putting it at risk. I think the stiffest penalties are in order.”

Inslee is a Democrat who is seeking his third term as governor, after earlier abandoning a bid for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Bringing home-grown apples into a pest-free zone is a misdemeanor, but the state rarely cites anyone, said Hector Castro, a spokesman for the state Department of Agriculture.

“Our practice has always been to educate the person and advise them that there’s a quarantine in effect,” he said.

That’s what they’ve done to the governor’s office, Castro said: “They are well aware now that there’s a quarantine.”

Local officials are trying to round up the apples Inslee brought to people in the towns of Bridgeport and Malden last week.

Inslee’s office issued a statement from the governor in which he said he and his wife Trudi picked the apples and he brought them along as a way “to express comfort for the communities suffering from devastating fires.”

“We regret this mistake. This is a good reminder of the importance of awareness around apple quarantine,” Inslee said.
