Eric Geadelmann directs the feature. His production studio Shadowbrook Studios compiled interviews for They Called Us Outlaws over the last decade.

Next, let’s examine what country star Miranda Lambert has been up to lately.

Miranda Lambert Has ‘Gotten to a Great Place’

In a recent interview with PEOPLE, Miranda talked about her life and recent events. She claims to feel content both in her personal and professional spaces.

“Finding happiness and being at peace with yourself, it’s a long journey, but I’ve really gotten to a great place,” Lambert, 38, said. “My manager’s been good about asking me to ‘sit in my life.’ Country music is a huge part of my life, but it’s not fully who I am.”

“It’s really about balance of life and work for me right now,” she said in the interview. “I’ve been touring for 20 years, and I’ve been everywhere and seen nothing — just a lot of parking lots. I’m trying to use my downtime to really experience life. I always get the boring months off, and I’m like, ‘Can I just have a sunshiny month off?’ So the first of July, I’m out of here, and I’m taking my Airstream.”

Then, she talked about her husband and their journey.

Lambert said, “I want to be open about how happy we are. I just don’t give two s—s about people’s opinion of me, my marriage, my music or anything else. I just care that I’m being me. He jumped right into this lifestyle — there’s a learning curve taking a New Yorker straight to the woods — but it was a big laugh. It’s nice to have a partner in that, someone by your side that supports you, loves you and believes in you. He loves me for me. It’s a really cool thing to have in my life, at this point in my life.”
