Miranda Lambert knows a thing or two about pain. She’s tackled vulnerability and self-recovery numerous times in her songs, whether they are autobiographical or not. Of course, her personal life hasn’t always been sunshine, rainbows and unicorns, though she claims to have found one once. Miranda’s witnessed her fair share of devastation. Sometimes, on that rare occasion, the two will collide in a way that creates a truly powerful moment. As a celebrity figure in the media, rumors fly faster than you could ever imagine, and the singer has continued to unleash her storytelling force into the world. With the hope that someone, somewhere will be changed (for the better) through her music, she’s contributed some of the most lasting, timeless recordings for country music history. Despite recent events, too, she has continued to champion causes like female empowerment and bravery in a way that speaks monumentally about who she is: one strong, independent, fierce, vibrant woman.

Here we take a look at six of her strongest moments through the years:

Female Vocalist of the Year, 2008 CMA Awards

As her first win, leading to a long-standing reign ever since, Miranda showed off an emotional side. As she stood next to the one and only Loretta Lynn (who she would later honor in 2015), she again took a stance for all new females everywhere. Her acceptance speech will definitely have you wiping back a few tears.

Salad Gate 2015

She’s not afraid to tell off the powers that be, and that’s why we adore her.

Amherst Concert (February 16, 2012), “Gunpowder & Lead”

It’s no secret that she’s a feminist and always speaks her mind. During this 2012 concert, Miranda took aims at rapper Chris Brown, who violently hit then-girlfriend Rihanna (sending her to the ER). ““Nothing else needs to be said tonight, ladies and gentlemen. Take note Chris Brown,” the country powerhouse said before launching into the high-octane barn-burner.

 

Cheyenne Frontier Days Concert 2015, “The House That Built Me”

Days before the divorce bombshell (from husband Blake Shelton), Miranda performed a string of shows. No one was the wiser, as she performed and nearly broke down on tears. Sometimes, you’re strongest when you are most vulnerable.

“Little Red Wagon” Music Video

If you were wanting definitive proof that Miranda is the most bad-ass singer ever, you got it in spades with her glossy, dusty music video of a track lifted off her stellar, dynamic Platinum album. Boss.

Loretta Lynn Tribute, 2015 ACM Honors, “Rated X”

Miranda performed an outstanding “spitfire” version of Loretta’s own enveloping-pushing classic that actually addresses divorce and the sometimes devastating aftermath. Considering Miranda’s own personal turmoils, this is a pretty brave moment. “Divorce is the key to being loose and free,” she coos, full of sass and grit.
